A novel air-cooled fuel cell system (2011–2013)

Abstract:
Greenhouse gas emissions and diminishing petroleum supplies have recently driven the research, development, and commercialisation of fuel cells. The development of novel air-cooled fuel cells will probably lead to the breakthrough necessary for advancing fuel cell technologies, benefiting Australian clean energy supplies in general and transport vehicles and portable devices in particular. The new design proposed here will lead to smaller sizes, lighter fuel cell stacks, lower costs (both material and maintenance), and lower electrical and contact resistances. This project will also enhance the international reputation and impact of Australian research in the internationally focused fields of microporous materials and fuel cell technology.
