Hydrogen fuel cell research. The hydrogen fuel cell is the metal box at centre. Sensors and computers (one at upper left) are being used to monitor its performance. Hydrogen fuel cells combine hydrogen and oxygen (from the air) to create electricity. The only by-products produced are heat and water, making this technology a clean source of power compared to the pollutant gases produced by the burning of fossil fuels. This research is taking place at Intelligent Energy, a fuel cell power systems company that has its headquarters in Loughborough, UK. Intelligent Energy was founded in 2001.
