Batteries Vs. Fuel Cells
Posted by: JackSawyer // Student
Although many believe that battery electric vehicles have overshadowed fuel cells and for good reason, as they appear to be both more efficient and better for the environment, results are coming out that fuel cells may hold the upper hand. It has come to attention recently that perhaps due to skewed media and tests, hydrogen fuels cells may be the better of the two. Tests involving the two options have been not fairly carried out as fuel cells are often test on longer mile ranges. Although both of these technologies are steps in the right direction, how will we know what is ultimately the best way forward if media and inaccurate studies potentially skew the truth? What do you think?
