Addressing Climate Change with Fuel Cell Technology

Ballard Power Systems and Plug Power have been evaluating the impact of hydrogen and fuel cell technology on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The results were independently verified by The Center for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Technologies (CEERT). The analysis focused on fuel cell applications most likely to achieve near-term commercialization, specifically residential cogeneration, distributed generation, backup power systems, materials handling and public transit buses. Results show that global GHG reductions through the year 2025 from these applications could be in the range of 30,000 to 115,000 kilotonnes, depending on assumptions made regarding production of hydrogen.
