A team of engineers at the University of Delaware has developed a technology that could make fuel cells cheaper and more durable.
Like battery-powered electric cars, fuel cell vehicles have electric motors.
Fuel cell vehicles, which typically release zero carbon emissions, generate power for their motors through electrochemical processes that use compressed hydrogen and oxygen
We looked at how large-scale adoption of electric vehicles would affect total energy use in a community, for buildings as well as transportation.
A new class of fuel cells based on a newly discovered polymer-based material could bridge the gap between the operating temperature ranges of two existing types of polymer fuel cells,
The potential of fully electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles is explored by Gearhart. In parts of the country that already generate more than 70 percent of their electricity from renewable and/or nuclear energy, fully electric vehicles may already meet the 2050 GHG emissions targets.
