Fuel cells provide high quality, reliable electricity where uninterrupted power is essential. They are also used to provide heat and power in public, commercial and residential buildings.
Fuel cells give good performance and range for urban public transport and delivery vehicles. Prototype cars with range up to 300 kms are also being designed. Fuel cell powered vehicles are generally twice as efficient as their conventional counterparts and have no toxic emissions.
In the UK, the first hydrogen fuel cell powered buses are operating in London. Three number 25 buses are running from Oxford Circus to Ilford. A 200 kW fuel cell is providing heat and power for a leisure centre in Woking.
