+ - Fuel cell breakthrough

Submitted by mcgrew
mcgrew writes: Surfing through Google news I ran across something I found interesting: a new type of fuel cell that is 90% less costly than current cells, one tenth the size (the size of a dishwasher) and far higher efficiency than current cells, and at only 149 degrees Celsius (300F) . It was jointly developed by Diverse Energy and the University of Maryland.

It produces enough power to run a large supermarket, or five homes. A smaller, home-sized unit is on the way. Is the municipal power plant on the way out?
