FC ) running on locally
produced hydrogen would diminish fossil fuel dependence , reduce
environmental impact and potentially reduce operation and maintenance
costs (Zoulias et al , 2006 .
The replacement of conventional technologies , namely diesel generators
and /or batteries by hydrogen technologies including fuel cells in RE
based stand-alone power systems is technologically feasible , reduces
emissions , noise and fossil fuel dependence and increases RE
penetration . Dumped excess energy is also reduced in such power systems (Zoulias and Lymberopoulos , 2007 . The fuel cell running...
