Abstract: In the present era, the demand for fossil fuels is increasing at a very alarming rate and to meet the need for time, it is required to switch to renewable sources of energy. Hydrogen is reportedly considered as a future fuel as it can store three times more energy as compared to conventional fuel and emit zero-emission. However, it’s safe and efficient storage is quite a challenge. Out of the three modes of storage, the safest among all is the electrochemical hydrogen storage. The common materials used for the electrochemical hydrogen storage are reported collectively in this report. These include complex hydrides, metal nitrides, clathrate hydrates, activated carbon (aC), capillary arrays, metal hydrides, metal-organic frameworks, doped polymer, zeolites, doped graphene and graphene. Graphene, a twodimensional (2D) material having sp2 honeycomb carbon atom with latticestructured, has received the researcher’s attention due to its properties and extensive use in nanoscience technology. The present investigation, therefore, aims to explore graphene as a potential medium for electrochemical hydrogen storage within a modified reversible PEM fuel cell named as a proton battery (PB). The outcome of the research may lead to a proton battery that works on the principle of electrolyser, fuel cell and stores energy in the hydrogen ions form. The major applications of such a system could be found in the field of transportation and remote area power supply.
