Abstract


To create a worldwide hydrogen (H2) economy with fuel cells providing clean, safe Electrica) energy, end users will have to embrace this energy carrier. That means using it onboard their vehicles, at fueling stations in their neighborhoods, in their electronic devices such as cellphones and laptop, computers as well as in stationary installations providing electricity for homes and businesses. H2-powered fuel cells that provide backup power for hospitals, banks, and telecommunications during grid "brown outs" or "black outs" have endeared the public to this new technology in the short term. However, despite field tests to establish proof of performance with customers, and industry efforts to establish fuel cells as a viable method of power production in the long term.
