We know: The Facts on Fuel Cells and EVs
What is a fuel cell?
Fuel cells are a technology used to create electricity by combining hydrogen gas with oxygen from the air. Like a battery, these cells convert chemical energy directly into electricity. But a fuel cell does not need to recharged because, as long as it is supplied with hydrogen, it will continue to produce electricity.
What are the sources of hydrogen?
Hydrogen can be produced from gasoline, ethanol, natural gas and methanol. It can also be produced from water by electrolysis.
Can hydrogen be produced by any renewable resources?
Not yet, but it may be possible to produce hydrogen from wind and solar power in the future.
What are fuel cells used for?
Fuel cells are currently being used to power motors in electric powered vehicles, also called EVs.
What are the advantages of electric powered vehicles?
Who manufactures electric vehicles?
What are current disadvantages to fuel cells and electric vehicles?
