Abstract:

Fuel cells are electrochemical energy conversion devices that turn chemical fuel directly into electrical power as well as generating heat. They operate at high efficiency and can be applied across a wide range of applications. Micro-combined heat and power (CHP) is one area in which fuel cells are expected to have a particularly significant impact with the potential for lowering energy cost and CO2 emissions in the residential housing sector. This chapter looks at the technological aspects ...
