Abstract
Development of a regenerative fuel cell/electrolyzer is proposed. GES will size two of their advanced technologies; a high-pressure electrolyzer that can directly fill hydrogen and oxygen storage vessels up to 3000 psi; and a dead-ended fuel cell that can use these gases directly and remove the product water without recirculating the feed gases. Combined these two technologies lead to a great system simplification over traditional regenerative fuel cell systems. Performance of the dead-ended fuel cell will be demonstrated at the appropriate scale and a cost/benefit analysis will be conducted to size the system components. Successful completion of this program will result in proven fuel cell and electrolyzer components at the appropriate size.
