Demand for fuel cells is growing throughout Germany
Demand for clean energy has been growing aggressively in Germany. The country has shown strong support for various forms of clean power, but fuel cells have begun to receive some special attention. This is partly because these energy systems can be used in the transportation space to make vehicles environmentally friendly. In recent years, Germany has been investing somewhat heavily in the development of clean transportation, but some companies are beginning to show more interest in how fuel cells can be used as comprehensive energy solutions.
Fuel cells can do more than generate electricity: They can also produce heat
Germany is expected to become a prominent fuel cell market in the coming years. These energy systems have managed to win acclaim because of their ability to generate electricity without also producing harmful emissions. Fuel cells also generate a considerable amount of heat, which makes them quite useful in residential settings where they can meet the heating and energy needs of homeowners.
