In the body of the study it becomes clear that FCVs do not beat internal combustion engines (ICEs) by much in equivalent fuel economy, And they are not much better in greenhouse gas emissions either, particularly in the liquid hydrogen versions, because of the energy required to transport and compress the hydrogen.
Hydrogen fuel cell cars appear to be making a comeback. But is this real? The comparison in question includes discussion of:
the wider process behind producing hydrogen fuel
the production itself
the transportation of the fuel
The future is a bit cloudy for hydrogen fuel cells (HFC), as electric vehicles have developed quickly and taken significant market share. Read More
different technologies can be used for micro-CHP, including stirling engines, rankine engines, internal combustion engines, and fuel cells.
Fuel cell based micro CHP units in homes and commercial buildings can help the electricity grid assimilate more renewables according to the Technical University of Denmark.
Scientists published a report explaining the need to create a market for electricity services to draw new technologies such as micro CHP into wider use and accelerate the cost reduction needed for general consumer uptake. Read More
