Fuel Cell Power System for Ships Offers Megawatt-Scale Clean Energy

A next-generation fuel cell power system for sustainable marine e-mobility is in development. The system will use proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEM) that convert chemical energy from hydrogen into electricity through an electrochemical reaction. They involve no combustion, converting fuel directly to electricity, heat and clean water. With the use of renewables to produce the hydrogen, the entire energy
