Reducing grid dependence with front + back of the meter solutions, and generating power closer to the load
Start with a powerful foundation
Picture a future where effective zero-emission alternatives to traditional gensets take center stage, and PEM fuel cells are leading the charge. From providing backup power during outages to supporting off-grid operations and enabling peak-shaving strategies, PEM fuel cells offer versatility. Their adaptability extends to integration into utility power and EV charging infrastructure, and even portable power solutions. Discover the potential of PEM fuel cells – from applications both front and behind the meter to their crucial role in substation power, generating energy closer to the load.
Greening the grid with clean power solutions
In a world where the need for dependable, eco-friendly energy is ever-expanding, collaborating with a company that possesses expertise and reaches all corners of the globe is a strategic investment in your success. Accelera has delivered MW scale stationary power fuel cell projects - from Korea, to Hawaii, Belgium, Thailand and frozen northern Canada.
Because experience matters
Accelera’s holistic approach to designing custom solutions guarantees a dependable and sustainable power system truly designed to meet customer needs.
High runtime applications - we analyze duty cycles and load profile to size the fuel cell block and batteries in the most cost-effective way
Technical performance - evaluated by considering site-specific criteria and risks, such as fuel availability, projected electrical load growth, on-site integration, equipment efficiency, and changing weather patterns
Economics - Where high is required for a longer duration, fuel cells power systems offer economic advantages compared to battery alternatives
Capacity firming - Korea
A major refining and petrochemicals facility in South Korea chose Accelera to help them produce continuous power for the grid from hydrogen. Two 40-foot outdoor containers, one holding rack-based PEM fuel cells and the other ancillary apparatus, were installed to generate the required level of power. The solution also included the necessary inverters to convert the DC power produced by the fuel cells into the AC power required by the grid. The result – a 1 MW stationary fuel cell plant that converted the site’s surplus hydrogen into clean prime power.
Vessel/Shore power - Hawaii
Working as a partner in the deployment of a pilot hydrogen fuel cell pod at one of Hawaii’s major commercial ports, Accelera supplied a containerized 100 kW fuel cell system incorporating four 30kW fuel cells, power-conversion equipment, and 75 kg of on-board hydrogen storage. Designed to show how the technology could provide a viable and clean alternative to the port’s diesel generators, the system delivered portable clean power to operate refrigerated containers that ran on a duty cycle of 20 continuous hours, while also reducing the facility’s fuel costs and carbon footprint.
Peak-shaving/Backup power - Northern Canada
In the challenging conditions of Northern Canada, Accelera deployed a system that integrated hydrogen and fuel cell technology to ensure continuous power supply. The solution included a state-of-the-art 350kW electrolyzer, hydrogen storage systems, a 200kW PEM fuel cell power system. These elements aligned with a 3 MW Arctic wind to help deliver clean hydrogen power.
