This has fostered economic growth and improved the quality of life for many while having a negative impact on the environment. However, consumption patterns differ significantly between developed and developing nations.

From H₂ to electricity and to H₂O – the virtuous circle

Fuel cell technologies offer opportunities to generate cleaner energy

Fuel cells (FCs) convert chemical energy from a fuel into electrical energy and heat through a chemical reaction, and not through combustion. Increasingly they are being introduced in stationary, transportation and portable or mobile power generation applications for different domains. IEC International Standards for FC technologies are proving essential to ensure their smooth rollout in all these areas. They are prepared by IEC Technical Committee (TC) 105
