Fuel Cells Explained

Fuel Cells Explained

Fuel cells are making headlines across the globe in almost every area of power production - including buildings, cars and portable electronics.
While the technology for these electrochemical power plants has existed since 1839, only recently have fuel cells gained popular recognition and come under serious consideration as an economically and technically viable power source.

Further more, fuel cells are considered a prime candidate for 'green' energy production: clean, quiet, and efficient. Despite their relatively new arrival on the popular scene, fuel cells have already found their way into early commercial testing in stationary (building) applications and prototype testing in mobile and portable applications.
