Ltd "Its first use could very well be in camps in the Arctic Islands or Northwest Territories where either butane or propane could be used if natural gas was not available on site Canadian Western, which provides natural gas ser- vice in southern Alberta, is one of 33 natural-gas utili- ties involved in the-Team to Advance Research for Gas Energy Transforma- tion (TARGET) Its objec- tive is to make the fuel cell acceptable to residential and commercial markets Fuel cells produce elec- tricity from hydrocarbon fuels such as kerosene, gasoline, propane, butane or natural gas. Unlike other systems which burn these materials, fuel cells combine chemically with hydrogen in the fuel and ox- ygen in the air The chemical reaction produces both heat and electricity without polluting byproducts. Water vapor and carbon dioxide are the major byproducts, making fuel cells more environmental- No Shortage of GAS RANGES Time to Change! featuring Superior's own Special ENTERPRISE RANGE model 72 SPECIAL..........

Fuel cells installed in the basement of homes have the added attraction of re- quiring only one un- derground link for both electric service and nat- ural gas for cooking and drying clothes barrier to widespread introduction of fuel cells in the near future is their cost. "I don t see the fuel cell competing with conven- tional electric systems for some said Mr. Fisher TARGET'S nine-year, three-phase program is aimed at converting the fuel cell, used successfully in the Apollo moon mis- sions, to an effective home system. Research has concluded that it will be commercially acceptable in homes by the early 1980s The fuel cell has success- fully completed field tests throughout North America, including Alberta and Quebec The Alberta test was conducted in Calgary during 1972 when Canadian Western installed a fuel cell, designed by Pratt and Whitney Aircraft Division of United Aircraft corp., in a single-family house The system operated for hours between August and December and was viewed by people, said Mr Fisher "The fuel cell proved ca- pable of meeting the elec- trical needs of typical resi- dential service." Continued In early 1973, the unit was returned to Pratt and Whitney Tests are continu- ing towards reducing costs and improving system reliability. Fuel cells may have limited application in Alberta, when they become commercially available in the next two or three years, for providing heat and electricity to lumber camps, construction camps or isolated villages, said Mr Fisher.
