Hydrogen Power

In a conventional road car, the energy that is stored in a fuel is converted to mechanical energy by using the principle of combustion. The Forze cars however, utilize a different and far more efficient concept. The fuel cell on board the vehicles converts the energy stored in its fuel, the hydrogen, to electric energy. This means that the hydrogen fuel cell system can be used to power an electric drivetrain, like a battery.

Forze Hydrogen System

The fuel cell system in our car is developed by the team itself. At the center of the system lies a PEM fuel cell stack, in which the actual energy conversion takes place. Hydrogen gas from the vehicle’s tanks reacts with oxygen from the ambient air, producing electric power. The only exhaust product: pure water. Controlling and operating a fuel cell stack is a delicate process.

About Hydrogen

Hydrogen is a chemical element with symbol H and atomic number 1. Hydrogen is the lightest element and its monatomic form (H1) is the most abundant chemical substance in the universe. 75% of all the mass in the universe consists of hydrogen.

At standard temperature and pressure you cannot see, smell or taste hydrogen. It is a non-toxic, but highly combustible gas with the molecular formula H2.
