Fuel cell

A device that converts fuel energy to electrical energy by means of an electrochemical process. Fuel cells chemically combine the molecules of a fuel (most commonly hydrogen) and an oxidiser (for example, air) to create heat without burning, thereby reducing the thermal inefficiencies and pollution that characterise traditional means of combustion.
