Abstract: Proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) are considered to be a promising technology for clean and efficient power generation in the twenty-first century. This interest is because of their high efficiency, high power density and zero environmental pollution. Polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) are the most appropriate type of fuel cells for use in vehicles due to their low performance temperature and high power density. Proton exchange membrane is the key component of fuel cell system. In spite of the currently promising achievements and the credible perspectives of PEMFCs, there are many challenges remaining that need to be overcome before PEMFCs can successfully and economically substitute for the various traditional energy systems. During the last couple of decades or so, numerous efforts have been made to advance the PEM fuel cell technology and fundamental research. Factors such as safe storage of hydrogen, durability and cost still remain as the major barriers to fuel cell commercialization and so have been the major concern among scientists. The objective of this review paper is: (1) to provide an overview of the technology of polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells, their characteristics and (2) applications to real systems such as transportation, residential power generation and portable computers; (3) to outline the major commercialization challenges of these fuel cells and the needs for fundamental research for the near future.
Keywords: Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells, Polymer electrolyte membrane, applications, durability, cost.
