NZPA researcher Dr. Jingjing Liu and the team at the University of Auckland have been awarded Marsden Fast Start funding 2021. This research will crucially inform strategies for eliminating the thermal strain of water electrolyser, substantially extending the lifespan of electrolyser components and their capability for continuous operation. This will improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of electrolytic hydrogen production.

Global climate change prompts an urgent transition to a new low-emission future and the adoption of sustainable green energy. Water electrolysis is promising for “green” hydrogen production using electricity generated from renewable energy.
