Fuel cell technology was first used in space crafts in the 1960s and 70s. Today, Hyundai introduced the first fuel cell powered vehicle. Alternative Energy gets enormous attention and funding but many Solar/Micro-Grid solutions have weather-related drawbacks while fuel cell technology use oxygen and hydrogen as fuel to create electricity.

Will Fuel Cell Powered cars become a reality? How does it work? Are they safe? Consumers are curious and hoping to hear from experts other than just the car-makers.

One of the main issues to-date with the adoption of fuel cells for cars is compressed hydrogen has had associated safety issues when used in automobiles. How is one company providing a solution to this barrier?

Neah Power’s patent-pending technology enables the use of a liquid, safe fuel (formic acid) for automotive applications without the associated costs of a dedicated hydrogen generation plant or the safety and handling issues associated with the use of compressed hydrogen. In addition, formic acid could leverage the existing gasoline distribution infrastructure for enabling zero emission transportation.
