The advent of Fuel Cells though yet to achieve mass commercial successes has presented new clean opportunities for meeting energy requirements. The rising fuel prices globally and the increasing environmental concerns with the rampant applications of fossil fuels in the transportation industry is forcing the development of alternatives like the Fuel Cell.

The whitepaper - Analyzing Regenerative Fuel Cells 2017 - analyzes the recognition, development and advancement of fuel cell technology in the scientific arena wherein it was clearly demarcated in 1900’s that fuel cells will be supplying energy and automotive power in the future. The paper further provides a view on the basics of a fuel cell; its structure hardware and the working principles of a fuel cell.

The whitepaper analyzes the ground breaking invention of Regenerative Fuel Cells and the various types of Regenerative Fuel Cells as well as the overall competitive market activity in this sector along with the market scenario for Regenerative Fuel Cells.

Figure 2: Diagram of an Alkaline Fuel Cell
Figure 3: Structure of a PAFC Fuel Cell
Figure 4: Structure of a Molten Carbonate Fuel Cell
Figure 5: Structure of a SOFC Fuel Cell
Figure 6: Electrochemistry of a unitized regenerative fuel cell. In the fuel-cell mode, a proton-exchange membrane combines oxygen and hydrogen to create electricity and water. When the cell reverses operation to act as an electrolyzer, electricity and water are combined to create oxygen and hydrogen
Figure 7: URFCs will someday find a multitude of applications. URFCs are ideal for cars, solar-powered aircraft, energy storage, propulsion in satellites and micro-spacecraft, and load leveling at remote power sources such as wind turbines and solar cells.
