A new fuel cell technology using liquid methanol has been developed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), offering simplicity of design and higher energy density.
NASA has applied for a patent on an innovative method for controlling a parasitic device in a fuel-cell system developed at Johnson Space Center in Houston.
06.14.11 - NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC) hosted the KSC Ground Hydrogen Symposium featuring speakers from industry and academia, as well as Kennedy personnel sharing Kennedy's unique perspective on ground hydrogen systems.
The leak detection research for the shuttle, currently underway at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Fla., has led to commercial development of a hand-held ultrasonic leak detection device.
NASA’s Glenn Research Center has designed, built, and tested an innovative fuel-cell water separator to remove liquid water from a fuel cell’s exhaust ports—with no moving parts or other power-consuming components.
NASA’s Glenn Research Center has developed a hybrid electric utility vehicle that is powered by hydrogen-burning PEM fuel cells operating with a metal hydride hydrogen-storage unit. This vehicle utilizes ultracapacitors - rather than batteries - for storing electric energy.
NASA's Glenn Research Center leads a team of industry experts in building a downtown Cleveland hydrogen fueling station powered by wind and solar energy.
Two hydrogen generators based on magnesium and steam reactions have been proposed at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory as means for generating fuel (hydrogen gas) for motor vehicles.
NASA studies hybrid power system that combines ultracapacitors with fuel cells to replace rechargeable batteries.
At NASA, hydrogen safety is a key concern for space shuttle processing. NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Fla. partners with Florida Solar Energy Center to improve hydrogen leak detection.
