Fuel Cell Cars & Trucks – Jackie Birdsall, Toyota

“Fuel cells create electricity by stripping electrons from hydrogen atoms; the hydrogen then bonds to oxygen to create water, while the electrons power the electric motor. The result is an electric vehicle that is fueled with hydrogen from a pump rather than electrons drawn from the nation’s electrical power grid.”  Car & Driver magazine

Many voices are talking about how we need to rebuild the post-pandemic economy to also make us more resilient to the ravages of climate change.  Ramping up adoption of electric vehicles is always in those conversations, especially battery-powered ones. But not there are hydrogen fuel cell EVs too.

Listen to Jackie Birdsall, Senior Engineer of these vehicles at Toyota explain how they work and much more, with host Joan Michelson.

You’ll hear:

“Open yourself to all kinds of opportunities and say ‘yes’ to them and it will help you find your passion and …step out of your comfort zone.”  Jackie Birdsall
