Hydrogen Fuel Cell
Fuel cells are a technology that generates electricity through the use of hydrogen. The electricity from the fuel cell drives the corresponding vehicles in the field of electromobility, whereby only emission-free water vapor is ultimately emitted.
Sustainable Energy Supply
This technique is not to be confused with that of a hydrogen engine, which is a hydrogen internal combustion engine.
Modern petrol engines have an efficiency of around 25%, while diesel engines can achieve an efficiency of up to 40%. Aircraft engines also have similar efficiencies as vehicle engines. This speaks in favor of using the fuel cell - especially if the hydrogen was generated by regenerative energies.
Fuel cells convert chemical energy into electrical energy. They can be made in various sizes and shapes, but all have some basic components: a liquid or solid electrolyte, bipolar electrode plates (anode and cathode) with gas diffusion layers, and a catalyst.
Fuel cells as emergency power systems are not yet part of the standard in the data center environment. High Knowledge is a pioneer in modern and sustainable hydrogen energy supply for critical infrastructures. The fuel cell used must be coordinated in detail with the electrical systems such as the UPS in order to be able to reliably supply the consumers with energy in the event of a power failure. Aspects such as hydrogen storage are just as much a focus as selecting the correct performance class.
