Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy
Fuel Cell Basics
ApplicationsHydrogen and fuel cells have a wide range of applications for use almost any time and anywhere.
Fuel cells are ideal for residential zones. They are virtually silent with no moving parts and provide reliable power 24/7. In addition, a fuel cell big enough to power an entire home is about the size of a traditional AC Unit. Fuel cells already power thousands of homes in Japan and are beginning to do so in the United States.
Fuel cells can be produced in stacks large enough to power the biggest of office buildings, and only occupy the area of a couple parking spaces. Again, fuel cells are a great fit in this situation as they are noiseless, environmentally friendly, and efficient. Distributed power from fuel cells does not rely on transmission lines and thus eliminates the need for backup power generators.
Fuel cells are just as mobile as you. Fuel cells can power cars, buses, airplanes, cell phones, laptops, and more. With nearly ten times the lifespan of batteries on a single charge, fuel cells can keep you powered no matter where the road takes you.
