Fuel cells powering inner-city vehicles

The purpose of this project is to power inner-city delivery cars using pollution-free fuel cell technology (generating electricity by combining hydrogen and oxygen), a technology already explored by ESA for satellites and robotic missions to Mars. Benefits of fuel cell vehicels include quiet, zero-emission vehicles for sensitive traffic areas, smaller vehicles that can navigate narrow and congested streets, while reducing noise and pollution and faster refuelling and lighter weight of fuel cell tanks.
