Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could produce driving power and energy and stay climate-neutral at the same time? And do that right across the globe – from the remotest corners of the earth to the megacities?
mtu fuel cell solutions of the future are set to turn that vision into reality. Fuel cells produce clean electrical power. Fuel cells can run on green hydrogen. Fuel cells emit steam and a little bit of heat – nothing more. That's why we're looking forward to a CO2-free future.
Electrical power from hydrogen and oxygen – how fuel cells are used in power generation
The Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems is developing complete and fully integrated mtu fuel cell solutions for the reliable generation of continuous and prime power in the MW range. And because they can be deployed as flexibly as a diesel engine, complete fuel cell solutions are set to play a prominent role in the energy revolution. When they run on green hydrogen, fuel cells are capable of CO2-free and therefore climate-neutral production of electrical power. Operators in particular of data centers, which are highly energy-intensive because all the world's internet traffic passes through them, have a vested interest in reducing their CO2 footprint and thereby their impact on the world climate. And fuel cell generators – which can be deployed for emergency power – enable them to do so. In principle, we are also working on fuel cell systems for peak and continuous power supply. Their use in airports and hospitals is likewise planned. Fuel cells can also play a major role in microgrids, thereby promoting the set-up of autonomous, C02-neutral power grids all around the world.
