The new NOW factsheet series on stationary fuel cell systems starts with the topic of “mobile communications”.
The paper provides information on the status quo of the supply of power for mobile phone base stations, gives an outlook on the further increase in power consumption in the future and shows the market potential for hydrogen applications in the industry.
Stationary fuel cell systems enable the continuous and reliable supply of power on site. This climate-friendly alternative is of particular interest for emerging and developing countries, as the grid power supply is often neither stable nor has blanket coverage. At present, however, diesel generators are often still used instead of fuel cells to supply electricity to locations with poor grid access.
