Fuel cells continue to be heralded as the energy source of the future, and every year an immense amount of research time and money is devoted making them more economically and technically viable. Fuel Cells Compendium brings together an up-to-date review of the literature and commentary surrounding fuel cells research. Covering all relevant disciplines from science to engineering to policy, it is an exceptional resource for anyone with an invested interest in the field.

Key Features

  • Provides an comprehensive selection of reviews and other industrially focused material on fuel cells research
  • Broadly scoped to encompass many disciplines, from science to engineering, to applications and policy
  • In-depth coverage of the two major types of fuel cells: Ceramic (Solid Oxide) and Polymers (Proton Exchange Membranes)


Researchers, scientists and students interested in fuel cells; particulary anyone looking for an overview of all the most influential research over the past year.
