Frequently Asked Questions

A hydrogen fuel cell is an electrochemical device that converts chemical energy directly into electrical energy through a reaction between hydrogen and oxygen. It operates on the principle of electrochemical conversion, where hydrogen molecules are split into protons and electrons at the anode, with the protons passing through a membrane while the electrons travel through an external circuit, generating electric power. The protons and electrons then combine with oxygen at the cathode, forming water as the only byproduct. This clean and efficient process makes hydrogen fuel cells an attractive technology for a wide range of applications, including transportation, stationary power generation, and various industrial uses.

Several types of hydrogen fuel cells are available in the market, each designed for specific applications and operational requirements. Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells are widely used in automotive applications due to their quick start-up, high power density, and relatively low operating temperatures. Alkaline fuel cells (AFCs) operate at higher temperatures and have been historically used in space missions and some niche applications. Molten carbonate fuel cells (MCFCs) and solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are suitable for stationary power generation due to their ability to operate at higher temperatures, making them efficient for converting natural gas or biogas into electricity. Additionally, phosphoric acid fuel cells (PAFCs) are another type used for stationary applications, known for their high efficiency and reliability. Each type of hydrogen fuel cell has its advantages and limitations, allowing for a diverse range of applications in the pursuit of sustainable and clean energy solutions.

Within the energy/transportation sector, the global hydrogen fuel cell market has seen major key players such as Panasonic Holdings Corporation, Ballard Power System, and TW Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies, which are capable of providing a range of hydrogen fuel cell services. Key players are offering hydrogen fuel cells and targeting diverse markets via contracts, agreements, and partnerships to enhance their global presence.

Some of the key countries leading the hydrogen fuel cell market in terms of adoption, research, and development are South Korea, China, Japan, and the U.S., among others.
