BALLARD POWER SYSTEMS
Though the energy density is greater for hydrogen, you then need to add the weight of a fuel cell stack, which detracts from the apparent energy density. Conventional batteries include the conversion mechanism.
Hydrogen powered vehicles offer particulate free transport for cities where diesel engines are choking the population and causing lung cancer. There is an abundance of clean wind and solar energy that can produce green hydrogen, something that at the moment is not happening, but will accelerate as EVs become cheaper.
As of March 2022 Ballard Power Systems had a market cap of $3.05 Billion. This makes Ballard Power Systems the world's 2962th most valuable company by market cap according to current data.
The market capitalization, commonly called market cap, is the total market value of a publicly traded company's outstanding shares and is commonly used to measure how much a company is worth.
All commercial fuel cells have a similar basic configuration, an electrolyte, permeable membrane and two electrodes, but there are different types of fuel cells based mainly on what electrolyte they use. Fuel cells are stacked and wired in series (just like lithium batteries) to raise the operating voltage.
