There is currently a continuously rising demand for the use of green energy, such as hydrogen, which is an excellent cleaner energy source. However hydrogen is not currently widely adopted due to technologies available on the market not being accessible to everyone. Meanwhile, world governments see great potential in hydrogen and are investing in its future.



By 2030 the European Union plans to invest $150 billion into hydrogen. Overall the use of hydrogen is on the rise, having tripled since 1975 and it is predicted that by 2050 it could meet nearly a quarter of the world’s demand for energy. Electricity is becoming more expensive in the meantime, estimated to rise by over 16% in the next 10 years.



To use hydrogen as a source of energy, hydrogen fuel cells are typically used, which take in hydrogen to produce electricity and heat for various purposes. The hydrogen fuel cells that are being produced currently are aimed at commercial applications that operate on a large scale. The growing demand for this kind of technology in the smaller residential sector led a company called Alkaline Fuel Cell Power to innovate.



The hydrogen fuel cells designed by Alkaline Fuel Cell Power uses alkaline fuel cell technology and are specifically made to meet the budget and requirements of residential users. The unique and innovative design of Alkaline Fuel Cell Power‘s units uses components made from more affordable materials than what is typically used. These are materials like nickel, graphite and plastic.



Hydrogen fuel cells like those being developed by Alkaline Fuel Cell Power do not use combustion in their operation, so no harmful pollutants are released into the environment. The absence of combustion also makes them noise and vibration-free. Alkaline Fuel Cell Power is currently prototyping the 4kW system and is expecting to have them ready for purchase by the year 2027.
