Fuel Cell Powered Light Cart

Fuel cell powered NF-2D floodlight set (light cart) featuring a metal hydride based hydrogen storage system. 

  • Original hydride storage system design by K. Lee, SRNL, adapted and improved by R. Bowman, JPL.
  • Project initiated early 2007 as a proof of concept for an application based on AB5 metal hydride technology.
  • Metal hydrides act as “hydrogen sponges” and reversibly absorb large amounts of hydrogen.
