Fuel Cells Out of Orbit

Fuel cells are ideal for space missions for many reasons. Fuel cells can run for long durations without interruption as long as fuel is supplied. They produce electricity very efficiently and reliably. In addition, the light weight of fuel cells reduces total launch pad weight.

Fuel Cells Enlist in Armed Forces

Fuel cells have the potential to dramatically change how the military carries out its missions, and how soldiers operate in the field. With the largest, most technologically advanced military in the world, the U.S. armed services use an immense amount of fuel and electricity, and any use of alternative energy would have positive effects on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, fuel cells are of particular interest to the military not for their environmental savings, but because of unique technical features that can aid soldiers in the field.

Fuel Cells Give New Meaning to "Green Grocer"

Some major chains have turned to fuel cell technology to help reduce their carbon footprint and their dependence on the electrical grid. Fuel cells provide clean, quiet, and reliable power to an industry that cannot afford to experience electricity outages. Stores are using fuel cells to generate heat, hot water, electricity, and even to power vehicles.

Fuel Cell Technology Update

Here are some developments in the Fuel Cell Industry provided for us by FuelCells.org

FuelCell Energy Fuel Cell Systems in California

These installations help propel not only FuelCell Energy's image and financial stability, but also California's standing as a fuel cell leader in not only the United States, but the world.

Fuel Cells Drive Other Applications Besides Cars

Imagine your cell phone lasting for 30 days without recharging, or your laptop running continuously for nine hours or more. Wouldn't it be great if it only took seconds to recharge your PDA?

Alkaline Fuel Cell for Backup Power

Fuel cells are only starting to enter the marketplace and due to the many operational and cost benefits they offer they should start to be accepted on an accelerated basis.

Hydrogen Powered Micro Trigeneration Technology

The use of trigeneration systems reduces the consumption of fossil fuels, per unit of energy required for a typical building, by about 40% compared to that used by conventional air-conditioning systems.

Integrated Fuel Cell Engine

According to a WADE (World Alliance For Decentralized Energy) analysis of data from the International Energy Agency, unutilised energy from the worldwide electricity system is around 67%!

Fuel Cell Combined Heat And Power (CHP)

Within the next few years, fuel cell CHP systems are expected to be able to compete with conventional systems on price, with competitive life cycle/fuel use costs.

Darfon G320 Microinverter

Darfon G320 Microinverter

The Darfon G320 is the microinverter solution for today's high-power solar modules. The G320 handles 60- and 72-cell modules up to 350W DC and outputs up to 300W AC. The G320's 3-phase configuration accommodates the electrical distribution systems of most commercial buildings and to reduce, if not eliminate, the need for expensive transformers. The G320 comes in four voltage/phase configurations, so it can be installed in residential, commercial or utility applications.
