Mobile lighting systems powered by hydrogen fuel cells are cleaner and quieter and now have a proven track-record in applications like nighttime construction, sports and entertainment events, and airport operations, making them ready for commercialization and broader use.
Dominion, one of America’s largest energy companies, recently announced an expansion of its clean-energy portfolio by developing a major fuel cell power generating facility in Bridgeport, Conn. The new facility uses a reactive process that converts natural gas into electricity.
Fuel cells may not be commonplace, but they are more commercially available than ever before. Their burgeoning success in providing power can be found in standby, prime and distributed generation mobile and vehicle applications.
