Hydrogen fuel cells can be applied in our transportation sectors for automotive power and in stationary plants for power generation on just about any scale, from homes to utilities. In the United States in 2002–03, transportation accounted for about 33% of our CO2 emissions (Fig. ind 36 2/24/05, 10:53:19 AM Drivers and Barriers 37 Million metric tons CO2 2,000 Industrial 1,500 Residential Transportation 1,000 Commercial 500 0 1980 1985 1990 1995 2000 FIG. 2–2.

You can think of a fuel cell as a type of battery that produces electricity. But conventional batteries generate power from stored chemicals, which need to be replaced. In contrast, chemical energy in the form of a fuel is fed into the cell, so it can generate electricity as long as it’s getting fuel and oxygen (Fig. 1–3). Hydrogen is the fuel cell’s ideal fuel. Water Oxygen (air) Energy Hydrogen Electrolysis Oxygen Hydrogen Fuel cell Energy Hydrogen storage Water Conventional Hydrogen fuels Fuel processor CO2 FIG.
