Fuel cell technology : A simple solution for a complex equation

Fuel cell technology : A simple solution for a complex equation

How to extend the access to mobility and energy to a greater part of our population while minimizing greenhouse gas emissions? This equation seems hard to solve without an alternative solution that is green hydrogen, (i.e., hydrogen produced with a hundred-percent decarbonized process). This article deals with a central element for the use of green hydrogen : the fuel cell. What is it ? First, what is a fuel…
