Evidence for Li+/H+ Exchange during Ambient Storage of Ni-Rich Cathode Active Materials / Hartmann, L., Pritzl, D.; Beyer, H.; Gasteiger, H. A. / J. Electrochem. Soc., 2021, 168, 070507 (Open Access) - DOI

The work presents the techno-economic analysis of stationary and mobile battery storage systems in local electricity markets. The interaction between energy storage and the energy management used in the peer-to-peer network is specifically discussed. To evaluate the results, both the economic attractiveness of the selected energy management and the lifetimes of the battery storage systems are…

Dr. Alexander Rheinfeld is a laureate of the VDE Bayern Award 2020 in the category university. The award honored his dissertation with the following title: Performance and Safety of Lithium-Ion Electrodes and Cells: Modeling, Simulation and Validation at Elevated Temperatures and Currents. With this award, VDE Bayern recognizes outstanding technical, scientific and educational achievements that…

Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells generate electrical energy without direct CO2 emissions from the electrochemical reaction of hydrogen and oxygen to water. Thereby, PEM fuel cells distinguish themselves among others in high power densities and high flexibility. In June 2021 two new fuel cell related research articles of the Chair of Technical Electrochemistry were published in the Journal…

The electrolysis of water by means of a proton exchange membrane (PEM) is a very promising technology for the production of green hydrogen. A new publication now shows ways to modify these membranes, which are commonly used in industry, to improve their usability and quality.
