Fuel Cell Today
There is no technological silver bullet to the needs of developing countries for power for meeting electrical, lighting and transport needs. But there are a number of technologies that could help in the medium to long term, one of which is fuel cells. This talk will run through the basics of fuel cells and current barriers to their implementation.
Once the basics of fuels and fuel cell technology are understood, the problems are evident. However, according to Dr. Adamson ..'A problem, is an opportunity with it's back turned to you'. She will be discussing case studies from India and Southern Africa on how fuel cell technologies are currently 'leapfrogging the grid' and also entering other markets such as vaccine fridges, wildlife monitoring stations and eco-lodges. Through discussion she will also be exploring the role of aid agencies and carbon financing in promoting fuel cell technology and also the fuel-cell technology uptake time-scale.
