Fuel Cells: Where Are They Needed Most

Fuel Cells: Where Are They Needed Most?

With global warming at the top of the agenda for most individuals and institutions fuel cells are gaining a lot of positive press with their potential to drastically reduce greenhouse emissions and save our dying planet.
There are numerous applications for this promising new technology however there are a few areas where it has the potential to change the way we conduct our daily lives massively. Transport and communications are two major industries responsible for greenhouse gas emissions seriously poisoning our atmosphere. If we could significantly diminish the amount of harmful waste these sectors give out then we would stand in good stead for a much improved o-zone layer.
As you probably know, fuel cells are our major hope for an environmentally friendly replacement resource for fossil fuels. The chemical reaction of combining hydrogen and oxygen produces water and during this process electricity is also produced which can provide power for an electric motor or any other device. The only by-product of this chemical reaction is water which of course can be reused in a multitude of more rewarding ways.
This revolutionary technology can be implemented into almost any vehicle imaginable, from family cars and commuter trains, to commercial airliners, boats and hovercrafts. If fuel cells could be integrated into all forms of public transport, buses, trams, tubes and trains then the United Kingdom’s carbon footprint could be shrunk considerably.
In regards to the communications industry there is a wealth of room for them to become part of. Smartphones with touch screens and large displays as well as a lot of other new media units with powerful capabilities could use micro fuel cells to power their demanding programs and operating systems. The development has risen in tandem with the development of nano technology, the two complimenting each other in the perfect fashion as they are adapted together for the appropriate applications in consumer electronics. Micro fuel cells can power laptops, mobile phones and all other portable media for days more than the current batteries that are employed. On initial testing they could power a mobile phone for a month and a laptop for a whole day without recharging. And this can be applied to any piece of handheld equipment imaginable, from digital video cameras and power tools to smoke alarms and hearing aids. On a grander scale fuel cells could replace batteries used for the national grid because they have the potential to provide power for telecom sites that require up to 5kW and without noise pollution or any other polluting emissions.
Hopefully we will see the increasing integration of fuel cells in to the appliances mentioned and greatly decrease the poisoning emissions that are polluting our environment so severely.
