The Next Generation for Sustainability – TRU Newsroom
TRU’s Trades and Technology presents the workshop Fuel Cells: The Next Generation for Sustainability, a talk by Dr. K. Joel Berry. He is a scientist, entrepreneur, engineer and inventor, and educates students and fellow engineers around the world in the area of fuel cell systems engineering, design and environmental sustainability.
Berry is also the CEO and founder of GEI Global Energy Corp., the parent company for GEI Energy Solutions Inc., based in Vernon, BC.
About the presentation
A fuel cell is an electrochemical device that produces electricity. In principle, a fuel cell operates like a battery. However, unlike a battery, a fuel cell does not run down or require recharging.
A fuel cell uses fuel—usually natural gas to extract hydrogen, and air to extract oxygen—to produce electricity. It will continue to produce energy in the form of electricity and heat as long as there is a constant source of fuel. The workings of the hydrogen fuel cell are surprisingly simple. Since there are no moving parts, fuel cells operate silently with water and heat as the only by-products.
Considering that Canada is warming up faster than the rest of the world—according to a report commissioned by Environment and Climate Change Canada—fuel cells may represent the best strategy today to counter these effects, while protecting the future for future generations.
More about Berry
Dr. K. Joel Berry has been a professor of mechanical engineering for 33 years and is the chief scientist/inventor of the globally patented GEIG-X5 hybrid fuel cell electric power generator. He is recognized as an ASME Technical Fellow and is a registered Michigan Professional Engineer (PE).
Michigan has recognized Dr. Berry as the Flint Father of Fuel Cells.
