A fuel cell is a device that can convert the chemical energy of a fuel into electricity. The most common fuel cells in transportation use a technology called Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM).
Fuel cells can also operate by applying other fuels than pure hydrogen. This technology is highly efficient and does not cause any harmful emissions and is thus also promising for large maritime applications.
