Fuel Cells

Many observers believe that fuel cells will lie at the heart of any postfossil energy architecture. Although they have been around for 150 years and their performance is not in doubt, their high manufacturing costs and low reliability mean that they have yet to capture any mass markets. A large number of companies and research initiatives are hoping to change that over the coming decade. We draw a distinction between the hydrogen industry and the fuel cell sector: fuel cells can burn a variety of hydrocarbon fuels, and hydrogen can be used by other systems, such as internal combustion engines. There is, however, substantial crossover between the two sectors.

These patented technologies for practical hydrogen collection and storage (fuel cells) have the potential to power the world entirely from renewable energy within one year if implemented today.
