  • Convert waste product into electricity By-product hydrogen from chemical production often vented or burned Capture this as a low-cost, high-value input for electricity and heat production Reduce electricity costs Electricity produced can offset grid usage Or, feed zero emission clean electricity back to grid Reduce environmental footprint Producing electricity from hydrogen is a clean, highly efficient process No combustion and zero-emissions Contributes to a company’s corporate sustainability and carbon reduction initiatives Best opportunities: Regions where the spread between hydrogen cost and the feed-in tariff is strong (California, Conneticut, Germany, Italy, UK, Korea ) Global serviceable market for distributed generation from by-product hydrogen is ~350-500MW Potential sources of by-product hydrogen are the chlor-alkali and sodium chlorate industry, petroleum refineries, ethylene plants, etc
  • Displace diesel generators and provide assured, renewable, zero-emission power for remote communities Approximately 3,000 to 4,000 communities worldwide, requiring units from 100-300kW Install fuel cell hybrid (solar, wind or micro hydro) to provide a zero emission solution Elimination of diesel generator emissions and noise Avoidance of costly and dangerous transportation of fuel Wind/fuel cell hybrid capable of supplying lower cost energy Triple redundancy system ensures reliability Heat available for domestic heating PEM fuel cells load following capabilities ideal for efficient use Studies show energy supply at ~60c/kWh Provides a reliable scaleable energy storage system that overcomes traditional challenges of wind farms Minimizes wasted electricity via curtailment by storing the energy as hydrogen Increases capacity factor by enabling peak time production when wind is not present Maximizes value with off peak electricity being utilized during peak times Minimizes Grid transmission congestion can be minimized Maximizes wind farm revenue Higher power purchase agreement rates through guaranteed capacity Creation of additional revenue streams (heat, hydrogen, oxygen) Increased flexibility Willingness to be curtailed Fast start up for use as spinning reserve
