Interview fuel cell specialist Jan van Dokkum: ‘Hydrogen fuel cells are part of the solution’
The promise of the hydrogen fuel cell has been a long time in the making. Where do we stand today? Is this the techology of the future – or will it stay a dream? EER talked about this with Jan van Dokkum, fuel cell expert and until a few months ago President of UTC Power, world leader in fuel cell technology. According to Van Dokkum, stationary fuel cell applications are already competitive today, as opposed to fuel cells for use in automobiles. Perhaps most importantly, his message is that fuel cells should be regarded as part of a total energy solution that is different in each situation.
