Fuel cells are a promising and sustainable clean energy technology. A fuel cell directly converts chemical energy into electricity with high efficiency and virtually no emissions. They can provide energy for systems as large as utility power stations and as small as a laptop computer. Challenges facing fuel cell research and development involve electrochemical processes and materials.
CWRU's strength in electrochemistry, combined with the capabilities in materials characterization and synthesis, position CWRU researchers to make contributions to innovation. The University's fuel cell portfolio includes:
