Hydrogen and fuel cells offer the potential for a clean and reliable alternative energy source, regardless of the application they are being used in. This diversity positions the industry as a key contributor to creating an increasingly sustainable landscape for reliable power generation on a broad scale. Through an electrochemical reaction, fuel cells convert hydrogen fuel into power. Unlike toxic batteries, which have limited stored energy, fuel cells run continuously as long as fuel is provided. And, using hydrogen as the primary fuel source, the only byproducts generated are heat and water.
Plug Power’s stationary market customers are a diverse set of industry leaders seeking solutions to the kinds of power challenges the world throws at them every day.
These customers have in common the desire to serve their customers to the best of their ability. We have that goal as well, and strive to provide fuel cell products that help do the job better. Plug Power stationary customers have installed nearly 6MW of highly reliable, clean, cost-effective ReliOn fuel cells in 46 U.S. States and 34 countries on 5 continents. We invite you to become a Plug Power customer.
There are more than 212,000 miles of railroad track in the U.S. that are used to transport both goods and people. Alongside the track is a variety of equipment used to ensure public safety and continued railway operations.
Plug Power is currently working with a number of railroad customers to increase the reliability and runtime for critical sites – and the safety factor for railway employees and the general public – by hardening sites against grid-interruption events.
ReliOn fuel cell products are already providing solutions for many backup or off-grid power railroad applications:
The focus of transportation network communications is to help people and products get safely to their destinations. Their importance cannot be overstated. Traffic signals for automobiles and railroads, road signage, air-to-ground communications and other critical applications must continue to function even when grid power fails or when locations are off-grid. Otherwise, chaos ensues.
Plug Power’s ReliOn fuel cells provide power solutions to these life-saving networks, where reliability is of key concern. Plug Power is currently working with a variety of transportation network companies to increase reliability and runtime for critical sites.
