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.
