Fuel Cell Bike
By: Jamie Becker

What is a Fuel Cell?
A fuel cell is a device that converts chemical energy from fuel into electricity.
The most common fuel is hydrogen.
Many vehicles like: automobiles, buses, forklifts, airplanes, boats, motorcycles and submarines, use fuel cells.
The First Fuel Cell Bike
In 1838, a German Physicist, Christian Friedrich Schonbein, created the first fuel cell.
In 2003, the Italian bikemaker Aprilia, created the first prototype a fuel cell bike using hydrogen.
Its top speed is 20mph, it weighs 20% lighter than a regular electric bike, and can travel about 43 miles.
Evolutionary History of the Fuel Cell Bike
2003- Aprilia- first prototype of fuel cell bike.
2004- Honda- Honda FCstack- motorcycle
2005- Intelligent Energy- ENV- motorcycle
2009- Intelligent Energy and Suzuki- Suzuki Burgman fuel cell scooter.
2012- Taiwan APFCT- fuel cell scooter
Innovations of the Fuel Cell Bike
Range- fuel cell bikes have lots of range before you have to refill. Fuel cell bikes can travel from 15-40 miles without refilling hydrogen fuel.
Hydrogen fuel instead of gasoline
1.5 pound fuel cell cartridge
Safe for the enviroment- hydrogen fuel cells may not eliminate pollution but it is a better greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.
It takes about 5 ounces of hydrogen to fill up the tank, at about $3-4.
