Fuel cells beat diesel generators
Now you can convince your customers with environmentally friendly power from fuel cells: Get great environmental and economic benefits by using energy and environmentally friendly fuel cells from EFOY on many applications.
A clean way to produce electricity
EFOY & EFOY Pro fuel cells are based on DMFC (Direct Methanol Fuel Cell) technology. An environmentally friendly catalytic process is used to convert the alcohol methanol to electricity – directly and efficiently without loss along the way. Therefore, this technology is one of the cleanest ways to produce electricity.
Fuel cells have many advantages over conventional generators:
– Energy and cost effective
– Low maintenance
– Environmentally friendly
– Lighter, more compact and quieter.
Reduced operating costs
EFOY & EFOY Pro fuel cells can be monitored and controlled via a modem. The user is notified of upcoming replacements of fuel tanks, which ensures planning and reduces the need for labor.
Almost no maintenance required
EFOY & EFOY Pro fuel cells are fully automatic and supply power for several months without maintenance.
The fuel is methanol – an alcohol with an extremely high energy density: 10 liters of methanol contain 11.1 kWh of energy. Thus, four 28-liter fuel assemblies can operate a 50 W unit for approximately 26 weeks.
An environmentally friendly solution
During operation, the only by-products from the fuel cells are small amounts of carbon dioxide and water. Therefore, they can be used in enclosed vehicles and spaces and in vulnerable natural areas.
Lighter, more compact and quieter
With a weight of 6-8 kg and dimensions of 44.8 x 19.8 x 27.5 cm, EFOY & EFOY Pro fit in most places and are easy to transport.
They have low vibrations and quiet operation with minimal heat generation, and they can be easily installed hidden and protected from vandalism.
Diesel generators need ongoing maintenance as well as frequent refueling and produce harmful emissions. Solar-powered systems can not guarantee a reliable year-round power supply, and batteries have very limited autonomy.
EFOY & EFOY Pro fuel cells are the perfect solution for power generators that meet all requirements for stationary and mobile applications.
