Testing Fuel Cells in Space

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Hydrogen fuel cell manufacturer Hydrogenics sold a lightweight 5 kW hydrogen/oxygen Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) to the NASA Glenn Research Center. The center will use it in an experimental closed cycle hydrogen-oxygen regenerative fuel cell. This type of system can be used for energy storage in places where oxygen is not easily available, such as very high altitude, space or underwater environments. NASA will use this stack as part of its research program to understand how the regenerative fuel cell will operate in future aerospace applications.
