Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles: A Quick Look

Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles fall under the same roof as electric vehicles (EVs). This is because hydrogen fuel cells actually power their vehicles with electricity. Unlike conventional vehicles which run on gasoline or diesel, fuel cell vehicles combine hydrogen and oxygen (through electrochemical reactions) to produce electricity. The energy that is created is then stored […]
