Watch this video to find out how fuel cell technology generates clean electricity from hydrogen to power our buildings and transportation—while emitting nothing but water. Learn more about hydrogen and fuel cell technology basics.
Fuel cells produce electricity from a number of domestic fuels, including hydrogen and renewables, and can provide power for virtually any application -- from cars and buses to commercial buildings. This technology, which is similar to a battery, has the potential to revolutionize the way we power the nation while reducing carbon pollution and oil consumption.
The Energy Department is working to increase fuel cell deployment by supporting research into cheaper, longer-lasting fuel cells and increasing the production of hydrogen from domestic energy sources.
