Hydrogen and Fuel Cells

Fuel Cells

Fuel cells are electrochemical devices that produce electricity directly from the chemical energy of a fuel, i.e., without combustion or the use of rotating machinery. Similar in operation to a battery, they do not go flat or need recharging, as long as they are supplied with fuel and oxidant (usually air).

Fuel cell systems are the complete package – the means for converting chemical energy in a fuel (e.g. natural gas) into electricity (d.c. or a.c. power). Systems are under development for a wide range of applications, from powering small electronic devices, such as smart phones, to large utility scale power plant, and as the prime mover for vehicles. Fuel cell vehicles run on hydrogen which has to be generated external to the vehicle.
