Pilot project aims to examine the viability of fuel cellsA new pilot project is being launched by property managers in the United Kingdom. Your Housing, Rykneld Homes, Housing 21, and South Essex Homes have come together to put hydrogen fuel cells to use in the residential sector. These energy systems have seen a small amount of use as residential energy systems outside of Japan. The pilot project aims to examine the viability of these energy systems and how they could be used to reduce energy consumption.Interest in fuel cells is beginning to growThe last time a fuel cell was used in a residential energy project was six years ago, when Black Country Housing made use of a fuel cell system to power property. While this particular initiative had generated some questions as to whether or not fuel cells could be effective residential energy systems, interest in these energy systems died out relatively quickly. With hydrogen fuel cells becoming very popular in the transportation sector, questions regarding their use in other sectors are beginning to circulate once again.
