Researchers hope to generate off-the-grid power that spares consumers the risk posed by black-out inducing calamities.
If powering your operations with a fuel cell that fits on a pick up truck seems like a great idea to you, then you’re in luck.
Business magazine Forbes is reporting a partnership between the University of Maryland and a Fulton, M.D.-based company is on track to produce a fuel cell that is one-tenth the size and cost of those commercially available today.
The aim is to generate off-the-grid power that spares our distribution infrastructure the risks posed by hurricanes, earthquakes and other black-out inducing calamities.
