Fuel Cells: Impediments or barriers to development or implementation

Description: Fuel cells are an emerging technology that continues to evolve rapidly. Fuel cell systems offer the potential for clean, reliable energy by generating electricity from a chemical reaction rather than from combustion (burning a fuel). In a fuel cell, hydrogen and oxygen are combined to produce electricity and water. Hydrogen (fuel) is fed into the anode of the fuel cell, and oxygen (from air) is fed into the cathode side. Encouraged by a catalyst, electrons are stripped from the hydrogen atom; freed of the electrons, the protons pass through the electrolyte, while the electrons are forced to take a different path to the cathode. As the electrons travel their separate path, they create an electric current that can be utilized.
