Discovering the Principle of the Fuel Cell at Home or in School

Fuel cells convert chemical to electrical energy. Engines and turbines with generator can also do this but there is a lot more interest in fuel cells. It is reported that the latter have a much higher efficiency than internal combustion engines and that the future of energy supply is unthinkable without them. In cars, houses and wherever energy is required, they will be found in future in the same places and numbers as car engines and single-story heating are found today.
