Hydrogen Fuel Cells Supplement DERs
Check out the article by GenCell’s President and CBDO Gil Shavit in T&DWorld explaining the advantages fuel cells offer to distributed energy systems.
Transformational Technologies are Making DERs Possible
When our world faces new and unprecedented threats, we need to be prepared for any scenario. Uninterrupted power is key to virtually every aspect of mission-critical public operations and to maintaining civil and military services, especially in emergencies. Alkaline fuel cells extracting hydrogen to generate long-duration backup power to sustain mission-critical assets can play a significant role in an energy sector in which the distributed energy resource (DER) topology is increasingly common, meeting two key objectives in parallel — on the one hand, fuel cells supply independent power for as long as the grid is not available; on the other hand, the stored energy in the fuel cell can instantly deliver power to the grid to avoid loadshedding and support peak power demands.
