The challenges of aging electrical grids in many parts of our very connected world, make a steady supply of electricity imperative. In the utility, telecom, homeland security, healthcare and niche industrial markets, the high-cost of electrical failure necessitates a business continuity solution such as the GenCell G5/G5rx. In 2015, grid failures cost an estimated USD 110 billion to the US economy.
GenCell’s fuel cell power solutions are reliable sources of backup electricity that overcome the significant weaknesses of the most common legacy alternatives: the high cost of battery rooms and the regular maintenance, odor, noise and lengthy startup time of diesel generators. Fueled by hydrogen, the clean energy of the future, GenCell power solutions produce energy with no emissions, noise or vibrations.
“GenCell has a unique set of solutions and a commercial and customer service focus that distinguishes it from other backup power vendors,” explains Tausch. “Reliable green energy solutions are very attractive to utilities, telecoms and manufacturers and I am very excited help GenCell’s team bring them to the German-speaking markets.”
“Michael Tausch brings a very strong set of skills to our team,” says Steve Orr, GenCell’s VP Sales. “The German market is a key market for us and in many respects it is a benchmark for the power industry. Michael’s sales experience and expertise in installation and design will provide an important layer of support to our customers as well as our growing network of distributors and resellers.”
