…Hydrogen is the simplest element, but it contains the tremendous potential for use as a source of heat and electricity for buildings and as a power source for electric vehicles
- EFFICIENCY – Hydrogen fuel cells are more than twice as efficient as regular combustion technologies. The efficiency of a conventional fossil fuel power station is typically 35%, while fuel cell systems can easily reach 60% efficiency and higher (with cogeneration).
- LOW MAINTENANCE COST – Fuel cells require less maintenance than traditional internal combustion engines because they do not include any moving parts.
- QUIET – Fuel cells operate with very little noise.
- LOW EMISSIONS AND BENEFITS FOR AIR QUALITY – Hydrogen as a form of energy can decrease our dependence on fossil fuels, as well as improve air quality by reducing pollutant emissions.
- ELECTRICITY SAVING – A high-performance fuel cell can run continuously (at baseload) or turn on to supply power when it is needed while ensuring lower and more predictable energy costs and increased reliability with reduced carbon emissions.
- RELIABLE BACK-UP POWER SUPPLY – Hydrogen fuel cells provide greater reliability, longer runtime and zero emissions in comparison to back up power sources based on diesel generator sets.
