1.1 billion people lack electricity for lighting, telecom, cooking & economic development. 84% of them live in rural areas beyond the grid. Telecom and rural electrification is critical for improving their quality of life. By 2020, more than 1 million telecom towers will be in off-grid or in poor-grid locations powered by diesel generators that pollute the air and contaminate the soil.
Green Energy at Half the Price of Diesel
The GenCell A5™ off-grid power solution provides the benefits of green fuel cell energy with an inexpensive and easily accessible liquid fuel – anhydrous ammonia. GenCell’s patented ammonia cracking device generates hydrogen-on-demand for use by its hydrogen fuel cell generators. A single 12-ton tank of ammonia provides enough fuel for a year of 24/7 operation. When installing the GenCell A5 at 1,000 sites or more, you can save up to $250 million or more compared to diesel solutions.
