Aging electrical grids and more frequent extreme weather make it increasingly challenging to meet the power needs of always-connected businesses and consumer lifestyles. In 2015, Americans experienced a reported 3,571 total outages, with an average duration of 49 minutes. Momentary blackouts cost the US economy $60 billion while sustained blackouts cost $50 billion.
GenCell G5™ Long-Duration UPS
The GenCell G5 long-duration UPS (uninterruptible power supply) provides a potentially unlimited source of 5kW backup power for telecom, homeland security, healthcare and niche industrial markets. Designed to be extremely reliable, the GenCell solution has minimal moving parts, redundant internal systems and is highly resilient to extreme environmental conditions (temperature, humidity, salinity).
The GenCell G5 overcomes the significant weaknesses of the most common backup power solutions: the limited duration of batteries, the smell, noise and lengthy startup time of diesel generators and the weather/daylight limitations of solar energy systems. Fueled by hydrogen, the clean energy of the future, the GenCell G5 long-duration UPS produces no emissions, noise or vibrations, making it ideal for indoor and outdoor use.
