Fuel Cell

FUEL CELL CARS Fuel Cell cars are a major part of the fleet of Zero-Emission Vehicles. The fuel cells are fueled with pure hydrogen and hence they are considered to be zero emission vehicles. Fuel cells have been used on spacecraft for many years to power electric equipment. These are fueled with liquid hydrogen from the spacecraft's rocket fuel tanks. Basic Mechanics Fuel cell vehicles turn hydrogen fuel and oxygen into electricity. The electricity then powers an electric motor, just like...

Hydrogen Fuel Cells

advances require more efficient sources of power. At the forefront of research for these power sources are hydrogen fuel cells. This power source takes in the most abundant element in the universe, Hydrogen, and yields immense power without combustion or pollution. The three aspects of this scientific breakthrough are the fuel cells, hydrogen production, and hydrogen storage. Fuel cells are the devices with which Hydrogen is made into electricity. These use a technology much similar to that of something...

Hydrogen Fuel Cell Research Paper

harmful gases that vehicles are giving off. Forget ethanol or biodiesel. The next big thing in automotive fuel may very well be hydrogen. Automakers rapidly are closing in on making hydrogen fuel cell vehicles an everyday fact of life, with several test models set to debut over the next few years. Hydrogen fuel cells to power vehicles are desirable, experts say, because hydrogen is a renewable fuel that can be used to create electricity to run cars. A chemical reaction between oxygen and hydrogen produces...

Hydrogen Fuel Cells vs. Natural Gas

this dilemma. Past research has shown that hydrogen fuel cells can quite possibly replace the country’s current usage of oil while having a more positive effect on the environment. However, environmentalists have conducted their own contradicting research on fuel cells reflecting negative effects on the environment. Numerous articles have been published which express both sides of this debate. Although some scientists believe hydrogen fuel cells will improve the environment and rid the United States...

Hydrogen - Fuel of the Future

change. Hydrogen fuel is that change for the automobiles of the future. Hydrogen has been used for decades, but mostly for commercial use. Each year, we get closer to removing the oil company’s choke hold on our wallets. It’s time to drive with a lighter purse and a cleaner environment and it’s time for hydrogen fuel. The two largest points of debate with hydrogen fuel are cost and production Hydrogen fuel is a cheaper alternative to our current source of automobile fuel used today. To make...

Hydrogen Fuel Cells

Hydrogen Fuel Cells There are many reasons to look for new cleaner forms of energy. Fossil fuels, being non-renewable, will eventually run out. Pollution from burning fossil fuels destroys our environment. Hydrogen fuel cells could be used many places where fossil fuels are currently being used. Using hydrogen as a form of energy can not only reduce our dependence on imported oil, but also benefit the environment by reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and pollutants that affect our air quality...

Fuel Cell and World Trade Center

we should replace the fossil fuels that are responsible for global warming and various forms of pollution. The automotive makers are trying to direct their message to all drivers. By instead using hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, but still have high cost producing fuel cells. Another problem is the lack of hydrogen refueling many different reasons, ranging from safety to cost to lack of demand. The benefits of ditching fossil fuels for hydrogen are many, burning fossil fuels like coal, natural gas and...

Honda Case (Chapter 3) - Strategic Management

destroying, and from whose perspective? How would you answer these questions for fuel cell vehicles? Hybrid electrical vehicles are an incremental innovation. In the perspective of customers and some companies who support the concept of hybrid vehicles, they are competence enhancing while in other perspective of those companies who are not supporting the concept of hybrid vehicles, they are competence destroying. For fuel cell vehicles, they are a radical innovation. From the perspective of the companies...
