This article deals with the hydrogen-powered cars that are being hailed as green transport for the not-so-distant future, but it could be a few years before we see them available commercially. However, it hasn't stopped fuel cell technology proving its worth in many other applications. Hydrogen fuel cells generate a current by passing hydrogen and oxygen over either side of a special membrane. This allows an exchange of protons through the membrane and causes electrons to flow around the circuit. Fuel cells and hydrogen energy offer an alternative source of power that is sustainable and reduces our dependence on oil and fossil fuel. They offer organisations a way to be cleaner, greener and more energy-efficient while ensuring the success and stability of their operations.
