Smart management: A new hybrid fuel-cell configuration (see picture) exploits the stability and high ionic conductivity of proton-exchange materials (PEM) and electrochemical advantages of anion-exchange membrane (AEM) electrodes. Water management is significantly improved compared to traditional polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells, allowing self-humidification of the cell.
