Fuel cells replacing diesel generators – The BMU’s Environmental Technologies Export Initiative in a nutshell
Under the slogan “Initiate. Promote. Network.”, NOW GmbH is using a short film to explain how the Federal Ministry for the Environment supports the development of decentralised and off-grid power supply using sustainable H2 technologies with the „Environmental Technologies Export Initiative” (EXI – Exportinitiative Umwelttechnologien) funding programme.
Best Practice climate protection: Clean Power Net (CPN) presents numerous new fuel cell applications from industry
The German fuel cell industry’s association for secure electricity and emergency power supply, Clean Power Net, is publishing a new digital information and best practice service on its redesigned website.
New NOW factsheet on fuel cells for decentralised power supply – Field of application: emergency power systems
Stationary fuel cell systems enable an uninterrupted and reliable supply of energy on site. This climate-friendly alternative is particularly appealing for emerging and developing countries, where grid power supply is neither stable nor widespread in many areas.
NIP 2: Call for funding for fuel cell systems for autarchic energy supply of digital or critical infrastructures
The Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) is as of now funding fuel cell systems in the power class of up to 100 kWel. Fuel cell-based autarchic power supply systems for digital or critical infrastructures (critical infrastructure as defined by the German Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance) will be funded.
NOW Factsheet: Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in India
As part of the Environmental Technologies Export Initiative, NOW GmbH has evaluated fields of application and opportunities for fuel cells in emerging and developing countries on behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU – Bundesministerium für Umwelt, Naturschutz und nukleare Sicherheit). This latest factsheet highlights their potential for decentralised and off-grid power supply, using India as an example.
