Welcome to the Fuel Cell and Green Energy Lab

Panoramic Image of Laboratory

The Fuel Cell and Green Energy Laboratory, headed by Professor Xianguo Li, focuses on the understanding of fundamental and applied green energy conversion technologies using analytical modeling, numerical simulation, and experimental observation. Current research topics include the characterization of heat and mass diffusion of Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) materials, modelling of PEMFC catalyst layer manufacturing, and the characterization of biodiesel fuel spray droplet formation. Please contact Xianguo Li for further information on the research projects or to apply to the research group.

PEM Fuel Cell

The Fuel Cell and Green Energy Laboratory is located on the 3rd floor of the Energy Research Centre (ERC) at the University of Waterloo. Our facilities feature state-of-the-art equipment for characterizing and testing the performance of fuel cells, much of which has been custom designed.

Xianguo Li, is the Editor in Chief for the International Journal of Green Energy and a member of the Editorial Board for the International Journal of Energy Research, International Journal of Hydrogen Energy, Encyclopaedia of Energy Engineering and Technology, and the chair of the Advanced Energy Systems Division of the CSME (Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering).
