Title: Fuel Cells: Green Power PDF
Url: http://www.lanl.gov/orgs/mpa/mpa11/Green%20Power.pdf
Creator: Gill, Dennis

Publisher: Los Alamos National Laboratory
Description: This online report, written in 2006, provides a comprehensive overview of fuel cell technology. In layman's terms, it gives a brief history, compares various types of fuel cells, and discusses environmental implications of using hydrogen as a fuel. For teachers and learners of physics, this publication explains the process by which fuel cells convert chemical energy directly to electrical energy, resulting in greater fuel efficiency and reduction of emissions. One chapter is devoted to an in-depth exploration of the PEM (polymer electrolyte membrane) fuel cell, which is being widely studied for use in automobiles.
