The stack generates the electrical energy used to power the fuel cell electric vehicle. As its name suggests, the component is a stack of fuel cells. In each one of these cells arranged in series, a “cold combustion” process takes place that converts the energy from the chemical reaction between the continuously fed hydrogen and airborne oxygen into electricity. The only products of the reaction are water, electricity, and heat. No pollutants such as particulate matter or nitrogen oxides are emitted.
