Energy in the Future series: The potential of fuel cells to reduce emissions
A fuel cell is an electrochemical device able to convert the chemical energy of a fuel directly into electric energy.
The interest in fuel cell technology as a sustainable solution is expanding worldwide as stringent actions are needed to reduce greenhouse gases. The ground propulsion is seeing a strong development of hydrogen-powered vehicles including cars, buses, trains and trucks. Research is actively seeking solutions to reduce all costs associated with the technology as well as improve the hydrogen deployment.
