  • Fuel Cells for Residential, Commercial and Military Power

    Like batteries, fuel cells produce electrical energy through an electrochemical process.  Unlike batteries, fuel cells are “conversion” devices that change some kind of chemical fuel into electricity.  Like combustion engines, fuel cells “convert” fuel into energy, but in this case the energy is electricity, not kinetic (movement) or heat. Fuel cells ...
