Plug Power - Powering Your Possibilities
Our philosophy is that new technology should be innovative and ultimately more reliable than traditional technologies – otherwise, why change? Plug Power’s forward-thinking design philosophy results in fuel cell power solutions that give You, the customer, a highly reliable, cost-effective and clean energy solution with a seamless upgrade path, maximizing initial investments in fuel cell systems, and dramatically reducing the impact on operating budgets and the environment.
Through proven field performance and third-party testing, Plug Power’s GenSure fuel cell systems have demonstrated many of the benefits associated with traditional technologies while minimizing the limitations associated with battery systems and combustion generators. This is the Plug Power difference.
How does a GenSure fuel cell work?
A hydrogen fuel cell generates electricity through an electrochemical reaction using hydrogen and oxygen. In simplified terms, it works like this:
Hydrogen is sent to one side of a proton exchange membrane. The hydrogen proton travels through the membrane, while the electron enters an electrical circuit, creating a DC electrical current.
On the other side of the membrane, the proton and electron are recombined and mixed with oxygen from room air, forming pure water. Because there is no combustion in the process, there are no other emissions, making fuel cells an extremely clean and renewable source of electricity.
Why choose GenSure?
Robust High Reliability
GenSure fuel cells have a reliability rating of 99.6%, arrived at through multiple third-party testing in commercial customer environments over the course of several years.
A critical element in capital procurements is the cost of ownership of equipment. Plug Power’s GenSure fuel cell solution is a cost-effective solution when compared to traditional technologies, both in terms of capital and ongoing costs.
Sustainability - Clean Technology
As a clean technology, fuel cells have minimal impact on the environment. GenSure fuel cell “emissions” are DC electricity, warm air and a small amount of water.
A Modular Product Line: Scalability
The advantages of using a modular product are simple. Greater reliability. Easier to service.
