There are great benefits to hydrogen energy. The use of hydrogen as a fuel produces no carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases. Unlike fossil fuels, the only emissions from hydrogen are chemically pure water and oxygen. Hydrogen can be extracted from water using renewable energy from sources like the sun and unlike batteries, hydrogen energy can be stored indefinitely. There is no drilling, fracking or mining required to produce hydrogen energy. It is the cleanest, safest and most efficient energy source on the planet.
In the past, there has been obstacles in commercializing the potential of hydrogen energy. The most significant hurdle has been the need to reduce the cost of the production of hydrogen. No matter how productive an energy source may be, it will not be widely adopted if it is prohibitively expensive. But times have changed. The cost of technology has come down and it has made hydrogen production less expensive. As technology advances, it will continue to make hydrogen energy more and more affordable. H/Cell Energy Corporation has succeeded in developing a hydrogen energy system designed to create electricity that is generated by renewable energy. Its production of hydrogen is truly eco-friendly as it is not produced by the use of fossil fuels. We call the hydrogen energy system the HC-1. It is a system comprised of solar panels, inverters, batteries, a hydrogen generator, a fuel cell and a hydrogen storage tank.
Renewable energy is collected from the solar panels through an inverter that charges a bank of batteries. After the batteries are fully charged, the excess electricity is then combined with water through a hydrogen generator that extracts the hydrogen from the water as a gas which is safely stored in a tank. After the tank is full, any remaining excess electricity is sent from the batteries to the utility grid for energy credits if applicable. The user always pulls electricity from the charged batteries to satisfy loads. If there is no sun to charge the batteries, the system uses the hydrogen stored in the tanks which through a fuel cell, creates the electricity to keep the batteries fully charged. Keeping the hydrogen tank full assures you of an on-going supply of clean energy and sustainability that is independent from the grid. With the production of hydrogen, H/Cell Energy Corporation can also add fueling stations at the location for hydrogen based vehicles.
Each HC-1 system is designed to accommodate the electrical loads for an end user. The system is scalable and can be configured to meet any kilowatt hour (kWh) demands. The installation includes solar panels, a hydrogen generator, a fuel cell and a tank that would be located exterior to the property with the battery system located interior to the property.
