As the new generation of soldiers become increasingly well-equipped with military radios, sensors, rugged computers and other military electronic devices such the GPS, the weight bore by the soldier increases as well. Fuel cells offer significant savings of loads, in weight and volume, compared to conventional power sources. A reduction in the load will result in a greater mobility and effectiveness of a soldier on his mission.

Hydrogen Generation
Hydrogen can store and deliver usable energy, but it doesn't typically exist by itself in nature; it must be produced from compounds that contain it. Electrolysis is currently the most viable means of producing hydrogen. GasHub Technology electrolyses aqueous fuel (methanol) or water to generate hydrogen. Electrolysis involves the dissociation of water into hydrogen and oxygen by passing a current through an electrochemical cell.

Hydrogen can be generated on demand for various scales. It can then be compressed and stored in tanks, transported in tanks or pipelines, and later consumed by vehicles for power or by industrial facilities or generating stations to produce process steam or provide electricity.
