The future of Hydrogen powered vehicles

What is a Fuel cell?

Fuel cells are electrochemical cells that produce electricity by converting the chemical energy of a fuel into electricity.

A fuel cell is a device that produces electricity by combining hydrogen with oxygen to create water, heat, and electric current. Fuel cells have been around for over 150 years, but they have become more popular recently because they are cleaner and more efficient than other ways of generating power.

A fuel cell is an electrochemical cell which converts the chemical energy from a fuel into electricity through an electrochemical reaction of hydrogen with oxygen (or another oxidizing agent). A fuel cell is typically composed of two electrodes—a "positive" electrode (anode) and a "negative" electrode (cathode).

Hydrogen Fuel cell cars

Hydrogen fuel cells are electrochemical devices that create electricity by combining hydrogen and oxygen. Hydrogen powered cars are environmentally friendly and produce no carbon emissions. They also have a higher range than battery-powered electric cars. .The United States Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a fleet-wide shift to hydrogen for all new cars, trucks and buses. Tesla is already producing hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. .A hydrogen fuel cell refers to any of a number of electrochemical devices that convert the chemical energy stored in hydrogen into electricity. A fuel cell is typically composed of two electrodes—a "positive" electrode (anode) and a "negative" electrode (cathode)—between which an electrolyte solution containing ions moves as electrons flow through the circuit. The flow of electrons causes the ions to react electrochemically, generating an electric current and in the process liberating heat. Hydrogen fuel cells are electrochemical devices that create electricity by combining hydrogen and oxygen.



Problems associated with Fuel cell cars

Fuel cell cars are not yet as popular as they should be. There are many problems associated with them, which is why they have not been able to take off. The first problem is that fuel cells are expensive and require a lot of maintenance. The second problem is that fuel cells do not produce electricity on their own and need to be connected to the grid for electricity. Fuel cells also do not work in cold weather, so vehicles that use them need to be highly adaptable. Automakers are investing in hybrid cars and they should continue to do so until more fuel cells can be developed.
