The project ALPE will develop new “Fuel Cells”, i.e., advanced energy conversion devices that are at the cornerstone of the “hydrogen economy”. Fuel cells are fed with hydrogen and produce electrical energy very efficiently and without pollution. Today “Fuel Cells” are not widespread and are very expensive. Indeed, they include a large amount of platinum, that is precious and scarce. ALPE will halve the amount of Pt used in a “Fuel Cell”. Thus, the “Fuel Cell” devised in ALPE will be more affordable and will be suitable both for automotive and stationary applications.
