Seeing is Believing
More and more clients are specifiying eco-friendly units in an attempt to reduce unnecessary emissions. Kensite advocates the use of a solar powered package and fuel cell back-up to drive mobile and static units, as the most friendly alternative power solution on the market.
We will provide a fuel cell with our units, where required, which activates in the event of depleted solar power. This combination provides ample power, 7 days a week, with a running cost saving of up to 70% compared to a conventional generator.
How Does The Fuel Cell Work?
The fuel cell converts methanol directly into electricity by means of an electrochemical process. The catalyst on the anode side oxidise methanol with water resulting in carbon dioxide which is conducted out of the fuel cell protons. This is then transported through the membrane and electrons that generate the power, as illustrated below:
So Why A Fuel Cell Rather Than A Generator?
The fuel cell is an ideal collaboration with the solar panels due to the unpredictable energy generated from the British weather conditions. What’s more, we consider it to be the most environmentally friendly alternative power solution on the market.
