Hydrogen Fuel Cells

Hydrogen Fuel Cells

Fuel Cells :

A fuel cell is a device that uses hydrogen as a fuel to produce electrons, protons , heat and water.

Stationary fuel cells can be used for backup power, power for remote locations, distributed power generation, and cogeneration (in which excess heat released during electricity generation is used for other applications)

Fuel cells can power almost any portable application that typically uses batteries, from hand-held devices to portable generators. Fuel cells can also power our transportation, including personal vehicles, trucks, buses, marine vessels, and other specialty vehicles such as lift trucks and ground support equipment, as well as provide auxiliary power to traditional transportation technologies. Hydrogen can play a particularly important role in the future by replacing the imported petroleum we currently use in our cars and trucks.
