THE GENCELL ADVANTAGE

Hydrogen and fuel cells are on the verge of a “tipping point” as we transition into a cleaner energy economy fueled by hydrogen. GenCell’s solutions for backup or continuous power overcome the significant weaknesses of other clean technologies such as solar and wind, while also overcoming legacy power solutions based on batteries and diesel generators.Hydrogen and fuel cells are on the verge of a “tipping point” as we transition into a cleaner energy economy fueled by hydrogen. GenCell’s solutions for backup or continuous power overcome the significant weaknesses of other clean technologies such as solar and wind, while also overcoming legacy power solutions based on batteries and diesel generators.

GenCell’s patented alkaline fuel cell technology reduces the CAPEX and OPEX of its fuel-cell power solutions by:

  • Using a carbon-based, non-platinum catalyst
  • Using regular, ambient air as an oxidizer
  • Enabling the use of lower-cost industrial-grade hydrogen as a fuel.

These cost breakthroughs associated with our patented alkaline fuel cell technology will enable GenCell to deliver fuel cell solutions that are affordable for the mainstream.

Cleaner and More Reliable Than Diesel

When the grid fails, the GenCell solution delivers an immediate injection of power without the noise or smell of diesel generators. Zero emissions and no noise mean that GenCell is suitable for rooftops, urban areas, and even indoors. And with no moving parts, it is always ready to provide power, without frequent oil changes or time-consuming servicing and maintenance schedules.

Better Than Batteries

Battery-based solutions usually provide from minutes up to 6-8 hours of electricity although many power failures last longer, especially during extreme weather. The GenCell power solution can provide power as long as hydrogen fuel is available. With just six cylinders, the GenCell solution will deliver more than 15 hours of 5 kW backup power.

All-Weather Clean Energy

GenCell power solutions are all-weather sources of clean energy. Unlike solar or wind systems, rainy days, long nights or calm, windless days are not a challenge.

Fuel Cells for the Mainstream

With higher energy efficiency, extreme weather operation and low operating costs, GenCell’s alkaline fuel cell technology overcomes the obstacles that have historically prevented the commercialization of fuel cells.
