One of the most important factors that contribute to the cost of manufacturing sector is energy. Electricity and fossil fuels are most used energy resources. These sources are depleting day by day. The research in energy sector is concentrated on use of non conventional and novel energy sources. Also the efficient use of available energy is very important area of research. Fuel cells can be used for energy generation from biowaste and other materials. Many investigators have carried out research on different types of fuel cells with different materials. The current review summarizes studies and research carried out on fuel cells.
Key words: Energy, efficiency, microbial fuel cells, voltage.
