Hydrogen and fuel cells are on the rise in the energy industry
Munich, June 06, 2023 – SIQENS, a leading supplier of methanol fuel cells and a pioneer in electrochemical hydrogen separation (EHS) technologies, will be exhibiting at ees Europe from June 14 to 16, 2023, one of four trade fairs at “The smarter E Europe”, Europe’s largest energy industry platform. The Munich-based company will provide information about its systems and their applications in Hall B2 at the “Hydrogen, Fuel Cells & Power-to-Gas” joint stand (Stand B2.450B).
SIQENS is present at ees Europe in the Green Hydrogen Forum & Expo exhibition area, where hydrogen solutions are the focus of the Munich trade fair. The aim is to bring hydrogen, fuel cells, electrolysers and power-to-gas onto the markets at an accelerated rate in order to support the energy transition.
Fuel cells are increasingly being used, especially for emergency power supply and in the off-grid area. Compared to diesel generators, they are economical and require little maintenance. They work silently, emit neither fine dust nor nitrogen oxides, and their CO2 emissions are low. Methanol from regenerative sources even enables climate-neutral operation. “Therefore, fuel cells will play a prominent role in the areas of back-up and off-grid power in the future,” says Dr. Thomas Klaue, CEO of SIQENS, is convinced.
At the trade fair, SIQENS will present, among other things, the methanol fuel cells it has developed and produced itself and are predestined for the emergency power supply of critical infrastructures, as well as for use in locations without a fixed connection to the power grid. The Ecoport, the fuel cell system from SIQENS, is operated with liquid methanol, which serves as a hydrogen carrier. Hydrogen is first obtained from the methanol in the Ecoport. This then reacts with oxygen in the SIQENS HT-PEM stack and generates electrical energy.
“In the future, our fuel cells will replace the diesel generators, which are still widespread today, in a CO2-neutral manner. And with our hydrogen separation technology, we create solutions for the hydrogen infrastructure on the ‘last mile’ to make the ‘green oil of the future’ available everywhere,” says Dr. Thomas Klaue.
The strong presence of the industry at this year’s ees Europe in Munich underlines the importance of the topic. The accompanying supporting program also makes it clear how important fuel cells and hydrogen are for the future energy industry. The SIQENS team of experts will be available on all three days of the trade fair at the Hydrogen, Fuel Cells & Power-to-Gas joint stand (Stand B2.450B) in Hall B2 to answer questions about hydrogen and fuel cells.
SIQENS, founded in Munich in 2012, develops and produces methanol fuel cells. The devices are used for the emergency power supply of critical infrastructure and in places without a fixed connection to the power grid.
The SIQENS Ecoport fuel cell system is operated with liquid, readily available methanol. Hydrogen is obtained from the methanol in the Ecoport. This reacts with oxygen in the SIQENS stack and generates electrical energy. In conjunction with a battery, which the Ecoport automatically recharges when required, an EcoCabinet is created as a reliable power source.
In contrast to diesel generators, fuel cells are economical, require little maintenance and emit neither fine dust nor nitrogen oxides and significantly reduced CO2 emissions. Methanol from regenerative sources even enables completely climate-neutral operation.
