Technological Offering

Fuel Cells

The ultimate decentralising technology

Fuel cells are electrochemical devices which use low-to-zero carbon-content fuels to generate electricity. They are the ultimate decentralising technology and can be scaled from simple watts to multi-megawatts in capacity. Although the technology is over 160 years old, only in the last 60 years has it been developed and adapted for industrial and commercial application.

Energy Storage

Efficient storage systems

Vanadium flow batteries which store energy in a liquid vanadium electrolyte that circulates between two tanks. The simplicity of the design creates a robust and efficient system which can be charged and discharged completely, as well as cycled thousands of times a year without having an impact on the battery’s lifespan.
