Fuel Cell Experimental Stock Portfolio
Fuel cells are an up-and-coming technology that may someday
rival traditional residential electricity and heating systems.
Modern fuel cells
convert hydrogen gas (and oxygen from in the air)
into electricity (and water is a by-product.)
In 1839, they were invented by scientist Sir William
Grove. In the 1960's, NASA started taking an
interest. Since then, they have been used for the Apollo and Space
Shuttle space programs.
However, it is important to note that
"fuel cells are not really gonna do anything."
