What are Hydrogen Fuel Cells?
Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology (HFCT) creates sustainable electrical energy through an electrochemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen, with only water and heat as by-products.
Hydrogen can come from two sources:
- Renewable carbon-neutral sources (e.g. wind and solar power), whereby hydrogen fuel cells produce carbon-neutral and emission-free energy.
- Fossil Fuels (e.g. natural gas), in which case the high-efficiency and the lack of combustion still produce lower emissions.
