Recent Advances in Fuel Cells for Transportation Applications 1999-01-0534
PEM fuel cells are being increasingly accepted as the most appropriate power source for future generation vehicles. This acceptance is evident by the formation of a new global alliance for the commercialization of this technology and by the growing participation of major automotive manufacturers in producing sophisticated demonstration vehicles. This paper describes this alliance and the status of a number of the demonstration projects. Included is a description of fuel issues and recent developments in this area.
