Fuel cells powered by hydrogen represent the latest technology in the push to reduce fossil fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emission. The internal combustion engine’s design limitations have been pushed to their limits and fuel economy has been maxed out. While a shift in consumer preference to smaller and more fuel efficient automobiles would decrease consumption and emissions, the economic model alone will not prompt such a change. The hydrogen fuel cell’s new technology calls for a radical
buzz on the issue of global warming and the general rise of cost of fossil fuels alternatives have been explored. One of these is hydrogen power in the form of the hydrogen fuel cell. This source of power
Mary H. “Alternative Fuels” CQ Researcher 15.8 (February 25, 2005): 173-196. Web This source mainly concentrates on the use of hydrogen fuel cells as an alternative to the United States dependency on foreign oil. It elaborates on the negatives of our countries reliance upon external sources for the vast majority of our power production needs, and suggests that hydrogen fuel cells are the answer to a sustainable energy future. The author is a writer for CQ Researcher who concentrates on energy, environmental
Proponents of a world-scale hydrogen economy argue that hydrogen can be an environmentally cleaner source of energy to end-users, particularly in transportation applications, without the release of pollutants like particulate matter and carbon dioxide. However hydrogen continues to have technical obstacles associated with it, including storage issues, due to the fact that hydrogen has a high energy density by weight, but has a low energy density by volume when not highly compressed or liquefied.
Instructor: Date: The Conversion of Solar (PV) Energy into Hydrogen Gas for Fuel Cells. Introduction Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems convert sunlight into direct current. For this to be achieved, semi-conducting materials would be required to induce the photovoltaic effect. A photovoltaic system comprises solar panels, each fitted with a number of solar cells that supply solar energy to the system. In the absence of sunlight, solar power would be available for household or commercial lighting
sources to sustain the current and future populations of the world. Renewable resources are resources that can be used repeatedly because of it can be replaced naturally. Examples of renewable resources are: wind energy, geothermal energy, hydroelectric power, and solar energy. The use of renewable energy sources is the only way to sustain the amount of energy needed for the population and to preserve the nonrenewable sources of the earth.
many. Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe and has been present since the beginning of time. Hydrogen is the smallest element in the universe, hydrogen consists as a diatomic, gaseous molecule with a single proton and a single electron. Hydrogen does not exist in its pure form on the planet, but it is present as a compound in molecules like water, glucose, natural gas, and even oil (Busby). Because it is found in such a variety of sources, hydrogen is the perfect power source for
to be talking, about how the element hydrogen when chemically broken down can produce enough power to run things like, cars, planes, helicopter, etc… which is chemistry in technology. Right now most everyone is very heavily dependent on the use of fossil fuels and the search for alternative fuel sources are starting to pick up. One of the leading sources of fuel being tested is the use of hydrogen as an alternative fuel. One of the disadvantages is that hydrogen is only found in a handful of locations
Hydrogen fuel cells are an emerging technology that could be the next mass produced energy source of the future. The application of hydrogen as a fuel source can be used to power cars, homes, and even cell phones. Hydrogen is the most abundant molecule in the universe. The most profound use for hydrogen fuel cells will be for vehicles. Hydrogen fuel cells will revolutionize the automobile industry. Hydrogen fuel has been used by NASA since the early 1970s to launch space stations and other rockets
