Fuel Cell Market Analysis By Product (PEMFC, DMFC, PAFC, SOFC, MCFC, AFC) And Segment Forecasts To 2020

April 2014

Fuel cells are devices which convert chemical energy possessed within the fuel into electricity via a chemical reaction with the help of an oxidizing agent. Fuel cells produce electricity using hydrogen or other hydrocarbon fuels such as natural gas or methanol. Fuel cell is one of the fastest growing alternate backup power options primarily due to the utilization of hydrogen as fuel. Conventional electricity generation methods utilize fossil fuels and considering the depleting fuel reserves, fuel cells are a feasible option as hydrogen is abundantly available. In addition, fuel cells are eco friendly as their by product only comprises of...

Hydropower Market Analysis By Application (Industrial, Residential, Commercial) And Segment Forecasts To 2020

February 2014

Fossil fuel based power generation is most popular form of power generation in the world. However, depleting reserves of fossil fuels has prompted the industry to shift to renewable sources.
