THE FUEL CELL TECHNICIAN'S GUIDE explains fuel cells and systems without requiring advanced knowledge in science or engineering for the installation, implementation, hand troubleshooting, and repair of fuel cells and systems. This book begins with the history of fuel cells and goes on to discuss various kinds of fuel cells, system balance-of-plant issues, safety, and codes and standards that students will encounter on a real job site. Varying fuel cells are used as primary examples throughout the text, providing several different views of how fuel cells work, where they work best, and why these concepts are important.

      According to the Emerging Trends in the US Solar market white paper provided by Enterprise Florida and GTM research, the US is rapidly emerging as one of the world's leading markets for solar power. The US photovoltaic (PV) market has grown at an average rate of 71% per annum since 2000, significantly outpacing global PV demand growth of 51% per annum. This rapid growth has placed the US as the third largest global demand center for PV (trailing Germany and Spain). While demand is beginning to stabilize in Germany and Spain, the US market is only beginning to ramp up. With high insolation, the largest electricity demand in the world, and ample available land for solar development, the US presents an attractive long-term growth opportunity for developers, installers, financiers, and other solar service providers. There are currently 3 solar standards that are considered industry standard: NAHB (National Association of Home Builders) green standards, ETA (Employment and Training Administration (of the Federal Government)), and NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practioners) exam objectives. All of these areas will be covered in the text. All NEC (National Electrical Code) references will be up to date as well.
