"Developing a portable solar/hydrogen fuel cell generator" Ph.D.

Daniel Strickland, Ph.D.

 The aim of this proposal is to develop a portable solar/hydrogen fuel cell generator for off-grid electrification to meet basic necessities such as lighting, cooling, and refrigeration. The expectation is that the availability of energy services in these areas will provide an essential input to economic activity and growth. By using renewable resources for the generator, it is hoped to mitigate harmful emissions from existing biomass derived energy sources, while supplying clean energy to the community.
