Reliable Power in All Weather Conditions - Day and Night!
From local microgrid installations to macro power plants, the solution generates electricity with a reliability unmatched by any other clean energy method.
A combination of electrolytic cell (electrolyzer) and a galvanic cell (battery) technology within the same cell arrangement. A small stimulus charge excites the reaction causing galvanic ions to produce a significant charge potential between the electrolytic electrodes to electrolyse ocean or rain water into hydrogen.
The produced hydrogen is an instant feedstock for a fuel cell which generates electricity to power the grid through a grid-tie inverter. A Self-sustaining energy is achieved by taking a small portion of the generated electricity to power the cells reactions.
Galvanic metal consumption at a rate of just $10/MWh almost matches to price of uranium used for nuclear power generation and much more abundant.
Due to the low level of thermal heat radiation and the nature of hydrogen, below ground level installations can be achieved and located almost anywhere.
Most other power generation methods are positioned above ground for practical, logistics or safety reasons. Fumes from fossil fuel burners travel downward, requiring ventilation to the outside environment.
Generated heat also plays a big part in their placement. The same applies to conventional electrolyzers that emit heat as 40% of the energy converted.
Conversely, the Galvanic Enhanced Electrolyzer (G.E.E.) does not emit much heat and can therefore be placed in a confined area, below ground level. Ground and system insulation protects the performance from extreme weather conditions. And if a leak should occur, the gas will travel up and out of the confined chamber.
The water is recycled from the fuel cell back to the holding tank. A small amount of byproduct is drained after several weeks and electrolyte added.
The power production capacity is determined by the size or numbers of (G.E.E.) cells. To the left is some scale comparisons where 'x' is the length of the housing. This simple example does not intend to convey any size restrictions.
Hydrogen is not stored or compressed therefore eliminating all safety concerns and consent approvals.
Regardless of wether the instalation is above or below ground, the self-powering capability enables energy supply at any location, with or without the grid.
Residential microgrids superior to rooftop solar.
Comercial power or power support.
Hotel and apartment block power.
Electricity to remote locations.
Stand alone microgrid or controllable grid stability support day and night.
In addition, the power supply can charge Electric Vehicles or fuel future hydrogen FCEV's.
The rapid growing EV market is predicted to place a heavy load on existing grids worldwide. Grid upgrade and bringing new power plants on line will cost billions.
The (G.E.E.) self-sustaining power generation technology presents a solution to EV charge stations at any location including remote areas.
Revenue going to the (G.E.E.) technology network owner rather than utility power company while eliminating the need for costly grit upgrade and associated power price hikes.
Large installation to provide high speed charge facilities and smaller installation to charge multiple long period charging.
Charge capacity and flexibility is limited only by size of equipment which is why below ground installation is a very attractive proposition.
Microgrid power competing with or complimenting renewable energy.
The network owner could rapidly grow a lucrative power generation chain by simply purchasing real-estate within residential or commercial areas. Constructing or converting existing buildings / houses into microgrid power generation facilities with the same grid-tied as solar and wind energy generation.
The total cost would be lower than solar and wind farms producing the same daily power. For example, an installation the size of a single wind turbine ground foundation, would generate more that 16 complete wind turbines - in all weather conditions.
A facility footprint to generate constant energy day and night would be a tiny fraction of a solar farm producing the same hourly energy during sunlight periods of the day and year.
The facility could also accommodate EV charge points and be a future hydrogen fuel station for FCEV's.
In addition, local council could provide utilities permits to install above and below ground microgrid power generators in public parks, recreational areas and roadside grass verge where gardens would make below ground installation visually appealing.
H2IL is taking expressions of interest in worldwide technology acquisition including patents and hidden IP.
