Data center owners are seeking long-term solutions to power their loads with clean energy. Fuel cells use different fuels, like hydrogen and natural gas, transforming the chemical energy from the fuel to electricity. Fuel cells have several benefits over conventional combustion-based technologies, as they have no moving parts and in general, they are highly efficient and reliable. . In this webinar, we will explore fuel cells, to better understand how they work, different technologies, and their adoption in the data center industry.
