The focus of this book is on electrochemical hydrogen technologies and fuel cell technologies in particular. Precipitated by the energy crisis in 1973, intensive work has been done world-wide on hydrogen technologies. Water electrolysis was the main objective. The steady increase of combustion of fossil fuels, with the ensuing CO 2 content in the environment, has led to a greater need to change the use of energy conversion and consumption. Hydrogen, based on nuclear and renewable energies, could become indispensable for energy storage and long range transport. Only electrolysis allows the conversion of electrical energy into hydrogen with high efficiency. Prior to the introduction of non-polluting but very expensive methods for energy harvesting and conversion, it is first necessary to ascertain how to save energy and to refurbish energy conversion systems to obtain the highest efficiencies with the lowest CO 2 emissions, e.g. in large scale electricity generation. Collected here in 7 chapters are the contributions of internationally known electrochemical engineers who work actively in this rapidly developing field.
