Support High-Efficiency, Direct-Hydrogen Automobiles

Fuel cells are clean, fuel efficient, and fuel flexible. Any hydrogen-rich material can serve as a potential fuel source for this developing technology. Possibilities include fossil-derived fuels, such as natural gas, petroleum distillates, liquid propane, and gasified coal, or renewable fuels, such as ethanol, methanol, or hydrogen. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) partnered with Ford Motor Company to develop full functional, zero-emission fuel-cell power-system technology for automotive applications. The purpose of this work was to demonstrate the technology in a complete laboratory propulsion system. This fuel-cell system, which operates on direct hydrogen, should achieve weights and volumes competitive with those of internal-combustion-engine propulsion systems. It should also have the potential to meet competitive production costs.

    Comments: My research has been genalelry part funded by industry & Govt. Depts. and part by faculty funding. As funding from industry and government dwindles we find ourselves relying more heavily on money from the faculty, and grants. With the REF happening this year money within our Uni has been very forthcoming, but we understand, due to cuts, that next year will be very different. Now we're frantically learning about and applying for grants, but even as a good research group, we're in a smaller university and it often feels like it's hard to compete.
