FCEVs run on the electricity generated by the chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen. An FCEV consists of a tank that stores hydrogen, a fuel cell stack that generates electric power, and a battery that supplies auxiliary energy. With water as the only by-product, FCEVs are completely emission-free. FCEVs are three times more energy-efficient than combustion engine cars, and they outdo EVs in terms of charging speed – as fast as pumping gas – and per-charge driving range (around 600km). For FCEV commercialization, however, the hydrogen-generation process has to become more energy-efficient and a network of hydrogen fuelling stations must be set up. Korean and global automakers are working toward the goal of commercializing FCEVs and putting a network of charging stations in place by 2015.
