H2 ECOnomy Unveils Renewable Energy Combination

Yerevan, Armenia [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] H2 ECOnomy, an Armenia-based international high-tech fuel cell R&D company, unveiled a renewable energy system that it developed as part of the U.S. government’s Global Initiatives for Proliferation Prevention (GIPP) project. The system includes a photovoltaic (PV) module consisting of 30 PV panels capable of generating power of up to 4 kilowatts (kW), a PEM electrolyzer with hydrogen storage tanks, a conventional UPS and a 1-kW PEM fuel cell backup power system developed and prototyped by H2 ECOnomy. During the daytime the excess electric power produced by the PV panels is converted into hydrogen by the electrolyzer, which is then utilized by the fuel cell system when necessary to generate electricity. The U.S. Department of Energy has provided US$620 thousand to H2 ECOnomy for the IPP project, of which US$100,000 was used to create the combined renewable energy system.
