Regenerative Fuel Cell (RFC)

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Regenerative Fuel Cell

The Regenerative Fuel Cell (RFC) Project will develop regenerative fuel cell (RFC) technology to provide energy storage for spaceflight applications including in-space, lunar surface exploration, and surface exploration of other planetary bodies. Future exploration missions, including human missions to the Moon and Mars, are expected to have a variety of longer-term energy needs that cannot be met using batteries for energy storage. For larger systems, RFCs offer equivalent energy storage for lower mass.
