According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the production of the fuel cell is not for tomorrow. There are still two major problems.
The first being its cost. At nearly $ 20 per kilowatt of energy produced, that price would have to be divided by 000 to produce this type of energy on a regular basis. The second concerns ecology. If we consider that the fuel cell only produces water, the production of hydrogen is costly and particularly polluting since the main source of energy used for its manufacture is in most parts of the world. case, coal. To reduce all of these problems, it is imperative that governments very quickly initiate a serious and long-term program in the context of the fight against greenhouse gases.
