Polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) are currently under intensive development for a range of power generation application in transportation, stationary and portable. The PEMFC can produce electricity at high fuel efficiency and high energy density. The PEMFC is typically base on Nafion® or similar polymers and operates at low temperatures of less than 80 °C. This article reviews the design principles of the PEMFC, the advances made in their performances and considers their limitations in relation to the types of materials used to generate power.
