Fuel cells powered by hydrogen for trucks will be the future
What are hydrogen fuel cells?
A hydrogen fuel cell uses the chemical energy of hydrogen to produce electricity and it is a clean form of energy with electricity, heat and water being the only products and by-products.
How does a hydrogen fuel cell work?
Like all-electric vehicles, fuel cell EVs use electricity to power an electric motor. In comparison to other electric vehicles, FCEVs produce electricity using a fuel cell powered by hydrogen, rather than drawing electricity from only a battery.
What is the benefit of a hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicle?
The advantage of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) is that they produce no tailpipe emission and they only emit water vapour and warm air.
Are hydrogen fuel cell vehicles environmentally friendly?
A battery-powered electric vehicle doesn’t mean that the vehicles produce no greenhouse gas emissions, but rather, that they produce no tailpipe emissions.
