First invented in 1839 by William Grove, a fuel cell is an electrochemical energy conversion device that produces electricity by combining hydrogen and oxygen into water. Like batteries, fuel cells convert potential chemical energy into electrical energy and generate heat as a by-product. But since the chemical energy is stored inside batteries—rather than generated—they can only operate for a limited duration until they need to be discarded or recharged. Fuel cells, on the other hand, can continuously generate electricity if they are supplied with an unlimited amount of fuel (hydrogen) and oxygen.
Hydrogen is the ideal fuel for all types of fuel cells, including our alkaline fuel cell-based power generators. Today, hydrogen is commonly referred to as “the fuel of the future”, especially for private and public transportation which are significant sources of pollution. Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz and General Motors and others are all focusing their efforts on the development and sale of hydrogen fuel cell cars as the supporting infrastructure is being deployed.
GenCell fuel-cell power generators overcome the significant weaknesses of the most common power solutions: the limited duration of batteries, the stench, noise and startup time of diesel generators, the weather/daylight limitations of solar energy systems and the high costs of other fuel cell solutions.
