Case 1: Hydrogen Fuel Cells

A fuel cell uses the chemical energy of hydrogen or another fuel to cleanly and efficiently produce electricity. If hydrogen is the fuel, then in the production of electricity, only water and heat are the by-products which promotes green environment.

At Nano lab of Kalyani Powertrain Ltd., we are targeting the in-house fabrication of H2 fuel cell with stacking and H2 cylinder storage.
