As a clean, efficient, and sustainable energy source, hydrogen can be produced by electrochemical method such as hydrogen electrolysis cell and stored for further use. Hydrogen electrolysis cell possess the advantages of high starting rate and high producing rate, which fulfills the request of solving the volatility of renewable energy. The produced hydrogen can be used either as a energy carrier or as raw material. For instance, it can be added to the hydrogen refueling station and provide energy directly to hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (HFCV) or converted into electricity by hydrogen fuel cells. The excess hydrgoen can be stored using liquid organic hydride (or liquid organic hydrogen carrier, LOHC for short) as storage medium.
