Abstract

With the recent increase in research regarding clean energy production, much attention has been paid to methods that produce little to no detrimental emissions. One of the leading theoretical models of clean energy production is the use of fuel cell technology. Hydrogen fuel cells operate by separating the hydrogen and oxygen atoms within a water molecule, which produces energy in the form of electricity. In the process, the hydrogen and oxygen recombine and produce water as the only emission. This video documentary explores the history and science of fuel cell technology, as well as its applications in the modern world. Both hydrogen fuel cells and biofuel cells are explored in terms of their potential benefits and consequences. The video concludes with an analysis of the efficiency of fuel cell technology and an examination of its possible uses and impacts in the future.
