    Sir William Grove was the person who invented the first fuel cell in 1839. Grove figured out that water could be broken into part hydrogen and part water through the use of electricity (what we now call electrolysis). His hypothesis stated that by putting this process in reverse, one could make electricity and water. He is responsible for the development of the first fuel cell which he called the “gas voltaic battery”. His hypothesis was proved to be theory and fifty years later Ludwig gave it the actual term “fuel cell” which became known as the practical way to make electricity.
