Intelligent Energy is showcasing at CES 2016 a number of consumer electronic prototypes powered by an embedded hydrogen fuel cell. The prototypes will be on display throughout the week at a special Intelligent Energy Embedded World event, in Las Vegas.
By embedding a hydrogen fuel cell into a phone, drone, tablet or laptop, consumers of energy can become producers of energy and have the freedom of instant energy for their electronic devices when and where they want it. The fuel cell technology fits into the existing hardware. There is no need for any existing battery technology to be removed to accommodate the fuel cell, but instead the two work side by side.
Intelligent Energy recognizes the importance of energy on demand as consumers are more connected and mobile than ever, with experts predicting that there will be upwards of 50 billion connected objects by 2020.
