Fuel Cell System
The world’s most efficient energy converter for liquid hydrocarbons in the 250 watt class.
New enerday’s compact, efficient energy modules can be used for a variety of applications. They can be found as off-grid electricity generators anywhere there is a demand for a reliable and environmentally-compatible power supply, such as in yachts, motorhomes or holiday houses in remote regions with no connection to the grid.
Whatever the application, their high efficiency levels combined with minimal noise and exhaust gas emissions offer an entirely new quality of power supply – quiet, efficient and environmentally friendly.
These fuel cells have electrical efficiency levels of up to 35%, almost twice those of generators using petrol or diesel engines. What is more, the systems do not emit any pollutants, just small amounts of carbon dioxide, and are very quiet while operating.
The simplicity of the system design guarantees high reliability and low system costs as compared with all other rival technologies. And attractive market prices are offered with high customer benefits.
The system design is simple, cost-competitive and efficient. Since the fuel cells generate heat as well as power, they are suitable for use as universal power packs for off-grid electricity and optional heat supply systems.
The system concept by new enerday GmbH guarantees that the generation of heat and power using an SOFC fuel cell operates efficiently and reliably.
The principle behind it may be old but the implementation is innovative: chemical heat and energy are converted to electrical energy and heat in a galvanic cell. A fuel cell is thus an energy converter. Available conventional and renewable fuels can be used with SOFC fuel cells.
The following is a detailed description of the system’s structure: the SOFC stack – the system’s core – is located inside a box made of highly porous, ceramic insulating material. Electricity is generated from hydrogen-rich gas, known as reformate gas, inside it. This reformate gas is produced in a patented catalytic fuel processor connected to the front of the stack. This distinguishes the SOFC from conventional fuel cell systems which require an extremely expensive system to produce hydrogen or pure hydrogen as drive fuel. Our processor technology is also suitable for converting liquid and gas fuels, a crucial advantage and the basis of the modular system design.
