Potential for cost reduction and performance improvement for PEMFC at component and system level

10. - 11. November 2021
Graz University of Technology (online and on-site), AT

Internationally recognised experts will provide insights into the latest developments and forecasts for cost reduction and performance improvement of advanced polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFC or PEMFC). The presentations will cover the entire fuel cell value chain and include interdisciplinary considerations from the component to the system level.


  • Prof. Viktor Hacker - Graz University of Technology, Representative in IEA AFC TCP Task 31 and 35
  • Dr. Di-Jia Liu - Argonne National Laboratory, USA, Annex 31 Operating Agent under AFC TCP

Content Description

This Two-day topical meeting is Organised in the framework of the International Energy Agency Technology Collaboration Programme on Advanced Fuel Cells (IEA AFC TCP).

Created in 1990, the vision of the IEA AFC TCP is to make a significant contribution to addressing the opportunities and barriers to fuel cell commercialization by fostering the development of fuel cell technologies and their application on an international basis and conveying key messages to the community, the International Energy Agency (IEA), policy makers and general public as appropriate.

The AFC TCP achieves these goals by sharing recent developments in research, development and deployment in the field of fuel cells with the Energy Technology Network (ETN) and wider audiences including policy makers. This includes dissemination activities of the Executive Committee (ExCo) and by linking activities to national stakeholders (national governments, policy makers, companies and research institutions).


  • Wednesday, November 10, 2021: 4 pm - 7 pm CET
  • Thursday, November 11, 2021: 9 am - 12 pm CET & 4 pm - 7 pm CET
