Fuel Cells 2000


Fuel cell power systems represent a huge market and challenging energy technology production.  In principle, a fuel cell operates like a battery but unlike a battery, a fuel cell does not run down or require recharging. It will produce energy in the form of electricity and heat as long as fuel is supplied. A fuel cell consists of two electrodes sandwiched around an electrolyte. Oxygen passes over one electrode and hydrogen over the other, generating electricity, water and heat.

Fuel Cells 2000 web site  is an activity of the Breakthrough Technologies Institute (BTI), a non-profit educational organization formed to promote the development and early commercialization of fuel  cells and related pollution-free, efficient energy generation, storage and utilization technologies and fuels.
Whatever the languish you select to browse the site (English or Spanish) you will find a multitude of information on fuel cells basics, companies, conferences carrier center, FAQ's, forums  and links.
