Reversible Fuel Cell Breaks Efficiency Record

Jülich, 18 December 2018 – Scientists from Forschungszentrum Jülich have put into operation a highly efficient fuel system that can achieve above 60 % electrical efficiency during hydrogen operation. This is the highest value ever reported by any research team worldwide. The system also has another special feature: the newly developed reversible high-temperature fuel cells not only generate electricity, but can also be used for the production of hydrogen by means of electrolysis.
