Hydrogen, and particularly green hydrogen, has been hyped as a zero-carbon, emissions free fuel. However, the only emissions-free use of green hydrogen is when it’s run through a fuel cell.

Clean Energy Group has published a fact sheet answering four commonly asked questions about fuel cells – what they are, what they can be used for, drawbacks, and potential benefits. This fact sheet will provide context for any community organizations, municipalities, or critical service providers who are considering fuel cells as a carbon-free power source.
