New fuel cell has exceptional power density and stability

A team of researchers led by Northwestern Engineering professor and fuel cell pioneer Sossina Haile has created a new fuel cell offering both exceptional power densities and long-term stability at optimal temperatures, a discovery that heightens the viability of incorporating fuel cells into a sustainable energy future. For more details see the IDTechEx report on Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles . "For years, industry has told us that the holy grail is getting fuel cells to work at 500-degrees Celsius and with high power density, which means a longer life and less expensive components," said Haile, Walter P. Murphy Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and professor of applied physics at Northwestern's McCormick School of Engineering. "With this research, we can now envision a path to making cost-effective fuel cells and transforming the energy landscape." The study, t...
