MORELife will demonstrate improvements of materials and operating strategies to enhance the durability and reliability of fuel cells stacks in heavy duty truck application. Degradation issues based on real life application data will be identified. With these key degradation issues identified, highly specific accelerated stress tests (ASTs) for a shortened test duration for lifetime verification as well as advanced degradation models will be developed. The project will reach ambitious goals of power density > 1.2 W/cm² at 0.675 V/cell and PGM loading ≤0.3 g/kW, while achieving system durability of 30,000 h of operation with <10 % performance loss.
