HELPS: European Program to experiment a hydrogen-based backup power solution

Smart Grid

Description

The HELPS project aims at providing an alternative backup power solution to diesel facilities commonly used in public buildings particularly sensitive to power failure such as hospitals. To fully meet the needs of these buildings, HELION Hydrogen Power developed and tested a 5kW PEM fuel cell. The latter was fed by hydrogen producedon site by electrolysis stored at low pressure.
