Critical infrastructures depend on a reliable power supply. A reliable emergency power system is of critical importance especially when using modern information and communication technology, such as with for authorities and organisations with security tasks (emergency services). An effective, broadband communication between the scene and situation centres is necessary for an optimised and realistic assessment of the situation. Conventional battery solutions make it very difficult to ensure long operational reliability for several days.
EFOY Hydrogen Fuel Cells are already in use in many locations to provide backup power. The fuel cell modules switch on completely automatically and take over the load no later than 20 seconds after the power fails. Compared to solutions with diesel generators, no CO₂ emissions are generated here. Another advantage of the EFOY Hydrogen Fuel Cell is the low maintenance effort as well as the low ageing tendency in standby mode. This ensures system availability for long periods of time.
