5 Energy/Combustion  e  H2 loses electrons and is oxidized
O2 takes electrons and is reduced H2 + 1/2O2 = H2O + Heat Biomass Coal Oil Gas O2

6 Energy/Electrochemical Conversion:
Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) Acidic (H+ ) Medium Re1 Ox1 Ox2 Anode Cathode H+ Re2 Pt as catalyst is necessary H2  2H+ + 2e /2O2 + 2e + 2H+ = H2O H2 + 1/2O2 = H2O

7 Energy/Electrochemical Conversion:
Hydroxide Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (HEMFC) Basic (OH -) Medium Re1 Ox1 Ox2 Anode Cathode OH⁻ Re2 Non-precious metal e.g., Ni and Ag can be used as catalyst H2 + 2OH-  2e + 2H2O /2O2 + H2O + 2e  2OH- H2 + 1/2O2 = H2O
