Fuel cells can deliver clean, reliable, and uninterrupted power nearly 100 percent of the time. Fuel cells offer the advantage of efficiency by converting chemical energy directly to electricity. They have no moving parts, thereby eliminating failures associated with pumps, blowers, heat exchangers, and other systems. All fuel cells, particularly high-temperature fuel cells, require spent fuel/waste heat recovery subsystems, and low-temperature fuel cells require fuel reforming subsystems that lower the efficiency of the entire system.
