CEA Liten (staff: 900) is a fast growing technological research institute dedicated to new energy technologies (photovoltaic, batteries, H2 and fuel cells) and nano-materials research. CEA is heading the N.ERGHY research grouping. Within CEA Liten, the DEHT (Electricity and Hydrogen technologies for the Transports Department) is now staffed with more than 150 employees. The laboratory covers R&D on low temperature and high temperature fuel cells and electrolysers, from materials (membranes, catalysts, ceramic cells, bipolar plates, seals) to system integration (stack and systems design and prototyping, power electronics, technical-economical studies).
In this proposed project, CEA Liten will participate to the developments of protocols for Accelerated Stress Tests (AST) and of a lifetime prediction tool by multi scale modelling in WP01. Besides, the platform of nanocharacterization will be use to perform ex-situ measurements on MEA after lifetime tests (SEM, TEM…). CEA will characterize small scale MEA composed of innovative materials. Some tests will be performed to characterize innovative components.
