Generac Power Systems signed a formal distribution agreement with EODev, a French developer and manufacturer of zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell power generators, to offer its large-scale hydrogen fuel cell power generator, GEH2, to the North American market.
The distribution agreement means Generac can provide even more alternative energy solutions for the industrial power sector. Generac has placed an initial order for the GEH2 generators, some of which have already arrived in the United States.
“Harnessing the power of hydrogen allows us to provide solutions that are engineered for the planet, while delivering value to customers committed to investments in carbon-free solutions,” said Erik Wilde, executive vice president of Industrial – Americas at Generac. “Hydrogen fuel cell power generators can play an important component in the expanding alternative energy space.”
The GEH2 uses a fuel cell and a lithium iron phosphate battery, reducing noise emissions and providing an instant start. This combination of power enables the GEH2 to deliver up to 110 kVA of power.
The GEH2 is equipped with event-driven electrical outlets, standardized frequency and voltage levels, as well as remote monitoring and data acquisition.
Designed to provide virtually any energy ecosystem with instantaneous power, the GEH2 offers a silent solution without emissions of CO2, HC, NOx, or fine particles, only emitting warm water and filtered air, according to the marketing materials.
EODev selected Generac for this North American expansion because of its ability to manage in-house service and maintenance, rental solutions and client support teams across the country.
“Beyond their vast expertise, we share a common ambition to accelerate the energy transition through our clean and innovative solutions,” said Jérémie Lagarrigue, chief executive officer of EODev.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We discuss everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
