World’s largest hydrogen fuel cell heads to Ohio

Posted in fuel cell by Shane McGlaun on August 12th, 2010

We have talked about hydrogen fuel cells before around here. The ones we are familiar with are usually small and can barely produce enough power to charge a smartphone. The world’s largest hydrogen fuel cell is shipping to Ohio for its 5-year trial run.

The massive fuel cell is mounted inside a semi trailer and produces enough juice to run 500 homes. The actual amount of power the fuel cell produces is 1 megawatt, almost enough to send Doc Brown back to the future. The massive fuel cell produces only water as a byproduct.

It will be used to power homes in the area of Eastlake, Ohio. The fuel cell will be used to ensure uninterrupted power to the residents during high demand periods in the summer.
