Fuel cells present a highly efficient and environmentally friendly alternative technology for decentralized energy production. A fuel cell is an electrochemical device which converts oxygen and a hydrogen-rich fuel to electricity with heat and water as the principal bi-products. The electricity produced can be used to power any electrical device, ranging from a few Watts to several MegaWatts in output. Fuel cells have the advantages of being highly efficient, low to zero emissions, near-silent, and able to run on a variety of fuel sources (particularly when used in conjunction with a reformer). In addition, fuel cells are reliable and capable of providing uninterruptible power provided they have sufficient fuel.
Indian fuel cell market is still in its nice stage, but there are major R & D activities happening in different research centres.
The following image, provided by the Centre for Fuel Cell Technology, ARCI, gives a birds-eye-view of the current research efforts taking place in the Indian fuel cell sector.
