Application of fuel power cell technology -Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment

As fuel cell electric passenger vehicles enter the market, many consumers believe that fuel cells are only used in cars. In fact, fuel cell electric passenger vehicles are probably one of the toughest markets to break right now, and fuel cells can scale to meet many different energy conversion or power needs. Fuel cells are proving to be a versatile technology from primary stationary power and cogeneration applications, to powering cell phones and laptops.(Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment)

There are already three emerging technologies here that are already reaping the benefits of fuel cells.

cargo transport truck

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is working with automakers from the United Parcel Administration and FedEx to demonstrate the benefits of fuel cell electric cargo delivery trucks. By combining battery electric vehicles with fuel cells, mid-size trucks can effectively double the range they cover. With a hybrid fuel cell battery system, the truck is primarily powered by the fuel cell, but the battery power is increased during peak load operation. Data and feedback from the project will be collected and analyzed by Argonne National Laboratory. The data will be used to guide additional early-stage research and development. The first truck is expected to be delivered in New York this summer.

marine generator

The DOE recently announced the results of an offshore fuel cell project, the first hydrogen fuel cell generator to be used on board. The 100-kilowatt generator with 72kg of hydrogen storage was designed and built by the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Maritime Administration for safety and regulatory review. The project partner operated the ship's generator for 10 months to power reefer containers in Honolulu, Hawaii. The project shows that by using hydrogen fuel cells, it is possible to increase the energy efficiency of ships at part load by up to 30% and eliminate emissions. The project also identifies the path and direction for widespread adoption of technology in the maritime sector.

Home hydrogen refueling station

Hydrogen infrastructure is the most critical obstacle to the use of fuel cell vehicles. California has more than 25 existing hydrogen stations, with a target of 100 planned. And as fuel cells make their way to the East Coast, just starting in the Northeastern United States, an attractive option for consumers may be home hydrogen refueling stations for their quick, clean and convenient service.

Winner of the DOE's $1 million H2 Refueling H-Prize competition, SimpleFuel offers a home hydrogen refueling unit that provides a 1kg refill of hydrogen for a fuel cell vehicle in about 15 minutes or less, allowing the vehicle to travel over 300 miles (60 miles). It uses hydrogen produced by water electrolysis and has a cost-effective design that minimizes the physical footprint of the system. Such infrastructure could help pave the way for mainstream hydrogen vehicle infrastructure in the future.
