Growth of the human population and global economic activity are placing significant strain on the life-carrying capacity of the Earth. Demands for food, clean water, shelter and energy are increasing as is the pollution generated through the consumption of these resources. The increase in demand for these resources is driven not only by population growth, but also from the desire to improve one's standard of living. In general, an improved standard of living requires an increase in the energy used per person. These two factors together lead to compounded growth in the demand for limited resources and in the production of hazardous pollutants. © Springer-Verlag London Limited 2011.

The case study presented in this chapter describes the design and implementation of a hybrid system for the elimination of engine idle in airport ground support vehicles. We will first examine the decision-making process by considering several combinations of renewable energy technologies. This will be followed by a discussion of why a PEM (Polymer Electrolyte Membrane) fuel cell/lithium-ion battery system is the most suitable design for this project. We will then discuss the details of the proposed design. The chapter will conclude in a discussion of the project results and a summary of the successes and limitations of the project along with proposed future work. © Springer-Verlag London Limited 2011.

There is growing interest in integrating fuel cells with batteries or supercapacitors to create stand-alone generators. These could be used in applications where diesel generators are commonly used today. The reason for wanting to do this is to reduce system cost. © Springer-Verlag London Limited 2011.

Renewable energy sources are those sources that are regenerative or can provide energy, for all practical purposes, indefinitely. These include solar, wind, geothermal, tidal, wave, hydropower and biomass. © Springer-Verlag London Limited 2011.

Hydrogen can be produced through thermal, electrolytic, or photolytic processes using fossil fuels, biomass, or water as a feedstock. Photolytic processes will not be covered here. © Springer-Verlag London Limited 2011.

The case study presented in this chapter discusses the key decisions that factor into the design of a hybrid fuel cell/desalination (HFCD) system to supply a developing region with adequate electrical power and water. The focus of this case study is Caye Caulker, a Carribean island located off the coast of Belize. Caye Caulker has limited fresh water sources and currently uses diesel generators as its sole source of power. The goal of this case study is to replace these diesel generators with an HCFD system that can also provide Caye Caulker with potable water. © Springer-Verlag London Limited 2011.
