The Green Fuel Cell

Our Mission

Our Mission is to build an economical small-scale hydrogen fuel cell system and power it with hydrogen fuel cell system and power it with hydrogen from local sources. With this, our goal is to educate the UC San Diego community about this alternative source of energy.

After successful construction and implementation at UC San Diego, we would like to reach out to local high schools and host workshops there.

Our Tactics

  • Acquire a small hydrogen fuel cell.
  • Produce hydrogen from solar-powered hydrolysis.
  • Obtain methane from local landfills/waste water treatment plants and convert it to hydrogen bio reformation.
  • Power speakers, popcorn machines or any device similar in energy needs with our fuel cell.
