The development of activities in the field of hydrogen technologies was also supported by the European Commission in the strategic document "Hydrogen Strategy for a Climate Neutral Europe". Today, Slovakia has suggested own national hydrogen strategy. he Hydrogen Technology Center is being established in Košice with the main "Power-to-Gas" concept using renewable power energy sources. A significant source of hydrogen is water and the electrolysis of water is the most promising technology for hydrogen production. However, before it can be recognized as an economically significant resource for large scale application with an exceptional energy potential, the simple, efficient, and secure methods of hydrogen retrieval have to be developed. Intrinsic structures of TMP meet the criteria of outstanding electrocatalysts that could further improve their HER performance in membrane electrode assembly. Therefore, the main challenge of dissertation thesis (DT) will be dovoted to reduce the production cost of HER and at the same time to maintain the high efficiency of polymer electrode water electrolysis. Substantial aim of DT will be aimed to improve the PEM water electrolysis components mainly electrode materials based on modified carbon fibers electrocatalysts result in the technology which should be more approached to commercial markets.
