Benefits of Fuel Cells for the Backup Power Market

  • Autonomy – Fuel cells are able to operate as long as there is available fuel, so whether an 8 hour, 1 day or 3 day extended runtime is required, enough fuel can be stored onsite.
  • Remote monitoring – Fuel cells can be fully monitored from one central location alerting the operator as to when the system is in use and how long before refuelling is required to ensure no downtime
  • Footprint –The space required for the same period of runtime is considerably less for fuel cells than for battery banks. Fuel cells do not require cooling like batteries which eliminates the need for spacious cooling systems.
  • Fuels - The majority of these systems operate on hydrogen (in this instance the only emission is water), which can be generated from renewable sources (electrolysis) or from reformed methanol or diesel.
  • Temperature tolerance – unlike batteries, fuel cells do not degrade a high temperatures and their range can be between - 40°C and +50°C
  • Integration – fuel cell systems provided as either a standalone unit similar in size to a small refrigerator (for applications like base stations) or can be inserted in existing 19” racks
  • Cost – over the lifetime of the unit can offer cost savings over existing technologies. This include: maintenance, repairs, transport and disposal
  • Reliability - In many cases, fuel cells are able to offer higher reliability and MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) and there is no degradation of voltage over time. Failures tend to be less critical and easily dealt with.
  • Environmental – Unlike generators, fuel cells do not use combustion and therefore there are no NOx, SOx or particulate emissions from the unit. These characteristics can reduce complications with site placement and integration
  • Maintenance – fuel cells have very few moving parts which reduces the need for regular maintenance.
