A fuel cell is an electrochemical cell that converts a source fuel into an electrical current and water. It generates electricity inside a cell through reactions between a fuel and an oxidant, triggered in the presence of an electrolyte
Only emissions are water vapour, Carbon neutral, greater efficiency, safe, quiet, low maintenance
No good source of the element Hydrogen, Costly to liquid
The concept was discovered in 1838 in Germany. The first functioning hydrogen fuel cell was built in 1843 by Sir William Robert Grove.
An electric vehicle (EV), also referred to as an electric drive vehicle, is a vehicle which uses one or more electric motors for propulsion
Does not produce pollution, Carbon neutral, lower cost of fuel, Batteries are recyclable, high fuel efficiency
Takes a long time to recharge batteries, Batteries are quite large and heavy (a third of a electric cars weight is the battery) , limited distance able to travel
In 1828, Hungarian, Ányos Jedlik invented a small-scale model car powered by an electric motor that he designed
An alternative fuel that can be used to power vehicles
Renewable, Cleaner burning than fossil fuels, high octane rating, non-toxic
n 1860, German inventor Nikolaus Otto uses ethyl alcohol as a fuel in an early internal combustion engine
A fuel derived directly from living matter e.g. Starch (Corn) crops, Rapeseed crops , Sugar crops
Reduced CO2 emissions, saves drivers money, less particles pollution, biodegradable and renewable, non-toxic
Large amount of land needed, less efficient and powerful than fossil fuels, can damage engines
Biodiesel was most probably discovered in 1853 by two chemists making soap (E. Duffy and J. Patrick).
fuel consisting of the remains of organisms preserved in rocks in the earth's crust with high carbon and hydrogen content
Generates a huge amount of energy, easy to find, gas is very efficient
Highly polluting, Produces high levels of CO2 when burnt, natural gas can produce displeasing odors, many environmental disasters are related with fossil fuels, e.g. nuclear meltdown, oil spills etc
oal, petroleum, and natural gas
A hybrid vehicle is a vehicle that uses two or more distinct power sources to move the vehicle. The term most commonly refers to hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), which combine an internal combustion engine and one or more electric motors.
Better performance, less CO2 emissions, better milage
High cost, Low acceleration, expensive spare parts
The first hybrid vehicle was invented by Victor Wouk in the 1990's
