Clean Energy Fuel Cell Could Power a Neighborhood

Did you know that a new “super battery” (the largest fuel cell of its type), can produce enough clean electricity to power over 1,400 homes? I saw this over at Solvay International Chemical Group’s site, and immediately thought of all of the innovative applications and energy-saving ideas that could come from this. Cars, ships, and any number of potential uses could benefit from this Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell, which uses hydrogen’s chemical energy and an electrochemical reaction with oxygen to create clean energy.

The project is happening in Antwerp, Belgium, where 800 hours of operation generated more than 500MWh, the equivalent to the use of energy from 1,400 houses.
