Hydrogen is gaseous, colourless and odourless. It is typically stored in compressed gas cylinders from 200 to 300 bar. Based on its weight, hydrogen has a very high energy density, is safe for the environment and non-toxic to humans.
Through the electrolysis process, hydrogen can be produced in an environmentally friendly way from renewable energies such as wind or solar. The hydrogen produced in this way is carbon dioxide-neutral. The electrolytic production of hydrogen is the simplest and – in relation to the electrical energy used – a very efficient process. The water electrolysis and the fuel cell reaction are based on the same electrochemical principle: by reversing the current direction, electrical energy is consumed (electrolysis) or released (fuel cell).
EFOY Hydrogen 2.5
The EFOY Hydrogen Fuel Cell 2.5 expands SFC Energy’s extensive product portfolio with energy solutions in the higher power range. With just one control unit, nominal outputs from 2.5 up to 50 kW can be individually scaled. Operation and installation are very simple and there are no emissions, so that the EFOY Hydrogen Fuel Cell can also be used in ecologically sensitive areas. The fuel cell is very quiet and efficient.
