In practice, the new emission goals mean everybody will have to readjust to a fossil fuel free energy system and change to more sustainable and future-proof energy sources. Consequently, you need to plan and invest in constructing upgraded electricity and heating systems. Luckily you do not have to throw everything you have out, instead you can replace or refurbish parts of your system to reach emissions goals in the short-term. And in the long-term you can become self-sufficient, with virtually zero energy costs.
FUTURE-PROOF YOUR STATIONARY POWER OPERATIONS AND ECONOMY
Stationary power can be divided into three areas:primary, peak and back-up power. Primary power being where the fuel cell runs your site independently or connected to the grid. Peak power helps you compensate for lack of power at times of high demand. Back-up power is where the fuel cell system steps in to keep your operation going when there is a power failure.
When you want to be more self-sufficient, to secure electricity access or simply work in places where there is no grid, you need your own power source. It could be that you want to decrease your grid dependency, lower grid costs or to set up temporary operations at an inaccessible spot.
At times when the energy demand on the grid peaks, you will want to ensure that you have access to the power you need. A hydrogen fuel cell can either eliminate or complement other energy sources, such as batteries, to do the job. As a bonus, it will cut costs when energy prices rise as the demand increases.
With the rise of digitization, back-up power has become increasingly important. It has been customary to use diesel generators that start up when there is a power failure. A hydrogen fuel cell can always be online, which makes it more dependable and your power supply system more robust.
