Fuel Cell Energy

  1. 1. Hydrogen Fuel Cells<br />The Future of Energy<br />
  2. 2. What is a Hydrogen Fuel Cell?<br />A hydrogen fuel cell is a electrochemical conversion device, which means that it uses chemicals to generate electricity<br />The most common chemicals in fuel cells are hydrogen and oxygen<br />Fuel cells are a very clean form of energy because in a hydrogen fuel the only byproducts are water and electricity<br />Fuel cells have a wide variety uses (see next slide)<br />Hydrogen is the most plentiful element in the universe<br />Hydrogen has the highest energy content per unit weight of all fuels, 52,000 btu/lb, over three times that of gasoline<br />
  3. 3. The uses of Fuel Cells<br />Automobiles<br />Processors<br />Power Plants<br />
  4. 4. How does a Hydrogen Fuel Cell work?<br />A hydrogen fuel cell works by fusing together hydrogen and oxygen to form water<br />Hydrogen is stored compressed in a liquid form<br />The fusion of the atoms produces an electrical charge<br />The charge is then collected by two conductor plates<br />The electricity is then routed to either a battery for storage or a motor to power a car<br />(see diagram on next slide)<br />
  5. 5. How a fuel cell works<br />
  6. 6. Hydrogen Fuel Cells Today<br />
  7. 7. The Future of Fuel Cells<br />
