Topical Collection: Materials Science - Material and Engineering Advances Towards Electrolyzers and Fuel Cells with Earth-Abundant Elements

Articles already published in this topical collection

Low-temperature water electrolyzers and fuel cells will play an important role for daily or seasonal storage of renewable energy and in the transportation sector. In the long term, an issue in the use of these technologies is the current need for precious or rare metals for reaching high efficiency and/or durability. This topical collection invites studies on science and engineering aspects enabling significant reduction, or complete elimination in such devices of precious metals and metals with risk-of-supply.
