Why Fuel cells?

How does it work?

International energy forecasts promise a bright future for hydrogen as an energy carrier. When produced sustainably, hydrogen offers a variety of advantages:

  • Ecology: low emissions, low noise;
  • Energy: it is not a fossil fuel;
  • Innovation high-tech development;
  • Economy: new industry;
  • Autonomy: less dependent on oil cartel countries

A PEM fuel cell has 4 components:

Hydrogen is:

  • is the lightest element in the periodic table - fourteen times lighter than air; 1 Nm3 (normal cubic meter) of hydrogen gas weighs 90 grams;
  • is colourless, odourless, and non-toxic;
  • is not an energy source, but an energy carrier;

The sustainability of hydrogen depends on the manner in which it is produced. 

A fuel cell is a device that converts chemical potential energy (energy stored in molecular bonds) into electrical energy.
