This chapter reviews the basic technology and potential application of fuel cells in the provision of energy, and the fundamental principles which would underpin the wider use of hydrogen as an energy source for fuel cells (‘Hydrogen Economy’). Hydrogen’s strengths and weaknesses as an energy carrier are examined, and the current development and commercialization of PEFC and SOFC type fuel cells in transport and domestic combined heat and power systems reviewed.
