The energy crisis and associated fuel shortages have propagated many proposals to attain energy independence and develop new sources of energy. The approach of a “Hydrogen Economy” is one of these proposals. The present-day use of hydrogen in the pollution control, metals processing, electric utilities and other industries has resulted in the creation of a series of commercial electrolytic generators for on-site generation of hydrogen. Three types of generators (small, intermediate and large size) presently used to generate hydrogen as a commodity are available for the “Hydrogen Economy” concept to be used in the generation of hydrogen as an energy distribution media or as a storage intermediary.
