With more frequent inclement weather conditions throughout the world, as well as an ever growing demand for electricity, utilities are requiring new technologies that provide highly reliable, clean backup power to eliminate service disruptions and improve customer satisfaction.
Substation switchgear equipment in an electric power network protects the network and provides the ability to control power in order to perform maintenance. Legacy backup power solutions, like batteries and diesel generators, have been used in the past in these critical applications, but have consistently under-delivered. Batteries are inherently unreliable with limited runtime, sensitivity to weather conditions and high maintenance costs. Pollution from diesel generators are driving ongoing regulatory restrictions in an effort to decrease noise and greenhouse gas emissions.
Better backup power is available now with Altergy’s hydrogen fuel cell technology, providing utilities with the most reliable, cleanest and cost effective solution.
