Backup Power

Hydrogenics fuel cell stack

PEM fuel cells in conjunction with batteries provide the best option for backup power.

  • Fuelled by hydrogen – stored as compressed gas or in solid-state hydride
    (can be generated by electrolysis of water using renewable energy)
  • Immediate start-up ( PEM fuel cells can be turned on within 1 ms from hot standby)
  • Zero emissions (only water!)
  • Low weight and footprint
  • Very low maintenance
  • Indefinite lifetime providing correct shutdown procedure is followed
  • Very low maintenance
  • Available from 1kW to >100kW from various manufacturers
  • Air-cooled (low capacity) or water-cooled for larger systems
