New energy sources fuel interest from Secretary of the Navy
Date:12/8/2011

kle this challenge.

Once solved, FCV deployment could be part of the answer to replacing gasoline-powered vehicles in on-base transportation fleets. This would help achieve the secretary's goal of reducing fossil fuel use in DON's commercial vehicle fleet.

In addition to the FCV, Mabus heard firsthand about the Micro Auto Gasification System (MAGS), a high-tech trash disposal process that can reduce a 50-gallon bag of waste to a half-pint jar of harmless ash. The MAGS unit is currently undergoing evaluation by U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Pacific at Camp HM Smith, Hawaii. To see MAGS in action, go to: http://www.youtube.com/usnavyresearch#p/u/0/CyRNWeQNGO8.

Hydrogen fuel cells create electricity through a chemical reaction between hydrogen and an oxidizing agent, typically oxygen from the air, or a stored oxygen source when air is not available. The byproduct, or emission, is water. Because of their fuel efficiencies, fuel cells offer an attractive alternative to gasoline and other fossil fuels.

Other ONR-funded research efforts with fuel cells include the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL)-developed Ion Tiger unmanned aerial vehicle, which set an endurance record for a fuel cell-powered aircraft after more than 24 continuous hours of flight. NRL is also testing this technology as a potential power source for long-endurance UUVs.

Future ONR research will test the viability of using fuel cellsas well as alternative fuels, including biofuelsas a stationary source of off-board power. Fuel cell technology is just one component of ONR's energy research portfolio aimed at helping DON meet its goal of generating 50 percent of shore energyland-based power used for docked vesselsfrom alternative sources by 2020.
