People must understand that hydrogen is a means of storing energy and not a fuel as other traditionnal fuels the arguments against fuel cell cars for the time being are twofold: first, hydrogen as it has been produced so far is not clean, secundly h2 vehicles are too expensive. A hydrogen fuel cell converts chemical energy stored by hydrogen fuel into electricity in many ways fuel cells are similar to batteries, such as those you might find in a car or in a portable electronic device like an mp3 player.
Electricity -- the flow of electrical power -- is a secondary energy source generated by the conversion of primary sources of energy like fossil, nuclear, wind or solar keeping the power flowing to american homes and businesses is a critical necessity for everyday life and economic vitality. A history of renewable energy and so on, to fuel our hearths and later, homesteads turning over virgin land to agriculture to supply the world with fuel and.

By carolanne wright contributing writer for wake up world rather than tossing your plastic garbage into a trash or recycling bin, imagine if you were able to easily, safely and economically convert it into usable fuel right from home. Crude oil and other liquids produced from fossil fuels are refined into petroleum products that people use for many different purposes biofuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel, are also used as petroleum products, mainly in mixtures with gasoline and diesel fuel. Dams are designed to last many decades and so can contribute to the generation of electricity for many years / decades the lake that forms behind the dam can be used for water sports and leisure / pleasure activities.

Non-renewable energy comes from sources that will run out or will not be replenished in our lifetimes—or even in many, many lifetimes most non-renewable energy sources are fossil fuels: coal, petroleum, and natural gas carbon is the main element in fossil fuels for this reason, the time period. So, when the h 2 hits the catalyst and splits into protons and electrons (remember, a proton is the same as an h+ ion) the protons go directly through to the cathode side, while the electrons are forced to travel through an external circuit.
