Fraunhofer ISE

Generation, Conversion and Thermochemical Processing of Hydrogen

The division Hydrogen Technologies of Fraunhofer ISE in Freiburg conducts research on the generation, conversion and thermochemical processing of hydrogen. 
In the context of hydrogen production, polymer electrolyte membrane electrolysis (PEM) is the focus of our scientists. We also develop fuel cell systems based on the PEM technology – particularly for the mobility sector.

As a result of the National Hydrogen Strategy, the generation of green hydrogen - as an important driver of the energy transition - has moved strongly into the public focus. In particular, the production of green hydrogen by PEM electrolysis using regeneratively generated electricity is an extremely promising option. In order to achieve the targeted power densities, it is essential to consistently develop both the technology and the materials used.
