United States Fuel Cell Market

In the global race towards commercialization, the United States (U.S.) is a world leader in fuel cell technology, with major fuel cell manufacturers and key component suppliers headquartered across the country, cutting-edge university research and partnerships, numerous patents, and the greatest number of fuel cell forklifts and fuel cell backup systems deployed.

Fuel cells are an important enabling technology for the world's energy portfolio and have the potential to revolutionize the way nations power their countries, offering cleaner, more-efficient alternatives to the combustion of gasoline and other fossil fuels. Fuel cells have the potential to replace the internal-combustion engine in vehicles and provide power in stationary and portable power applications because they are energy-efficient, clean, and fuel-flexible.

Today, fuel cells are being developed to power passenger vehicles, commercial buildings, homes, and even small devices such as laptop computers. Fuel cell systems can be extremely efficient over a large range of sizes (from 1 kW to hundreds of megawatts). Some systems can achieve overall efficiencies of 80% or more when heat production is combined with power generation. Fuel cell systems integrated with hydrogen production and storage can provide fuel for vehicles, energy for heating and cooling, and electricity to power our communities. These clean systems offer a unique opportunity for energy independence, highly reliable energy services, and economic benefits.

Fuel cells are classified primarily by the kind of electrolyte they employ. This classification determines the kind of chemical reactions that take place in the cell, the kind of catalysts required, the temperature range in which the cell operates, the fuel required, and other factors. These characteristics, in turn, affect the applications for which these cells are most suitable. There are several types of fuel cells currently under development, each with its own advantages, limitations, and potential applications.

1) Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cells

2) Direct Methanol Fuel Cells

3) Alkaline Fuel Cells

4) Phosphoric Acid Fuel Cells

5) Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells

6) Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

7) Regenerative Fuel Cells
