GenCell Releases Introductory White Paper to Fuel Cell Technology

Informative paper explains how fuel cells work and why they are excellent source of clean backup energy

Petach Tikvah, Israel - June 20, 2017 - GenCell, the Israel-based fuel cell power solution provider, has announced the publication of a white paper, "The Big Deal About Fuel Cells." The white paper discusses hydrogen-based fuel cell technologies and why fuel cell power solutions can be an excellent source of backup energy.

Aging electrical grids in many parts of the world make a steady supply of electricity imperative for our always-connected lifestyles and businesses. In 2015, grid failures cost an estimated USD 110 billion to the US economy. For companies in the utility, telecom, homeland security, healthcare and niche industrial markets, the high business costs of electrical failure necessitate backup power solutions that are reliable and easy to operate.
Topics covered in the white paper include:
• What is a fuel cell?
• Types of fuel cells
• Hydrogen safety
• The need for backup power
• The GenCell advantage
"Fuel cells are a hot topic and the publication of our white paper is designed to educate the market about fuel cells in general and to highlight the benefits of our alkaline fuel cell solution for backup energy," explains Rami Reshef, CEO of GenCell. "The cost breakthroughs associated with our patented alkaline fuel cell technology will enable us to deliver fuel cell power solutions that are affordable for the mainstream. Our 5 kW backup power solutions overcome the significant weaknesses of other clean technologies such as solar and wind, while also overcoming legacy solutions based on batteries and diesel generators."

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
