For over 100 years fuel cells have held the promise of high-efficiency clean power generation, but until now their mainstream adoption has been limited by performance, cost, or infrastructure issues.

Proof Energy’s directly address all 3 of these challenges:

High Performance: Solid Oxide Fuel Cells generate power with best-in-class efficiencies (>65% net electrical on commercial system level) while offering the robustness (e.g. thermal and vibration resistance) of battery packs.

Low Cost: The porous stainless-steel construction of Proof energy’s Metal-Supported Solid Oxide Fuel Cells are 10x less expensive than traditional ceramic-supported cells. Additionally, Proof’s fuel cells boast low operating costs (cheap fuels like ethanol, methanol or natural gas + low maintenance solid state designs) deliver cost-effective power generation.

Existing Infrastructure: Can use a wide variety of fuels like ethanol, methanol or natural gas which are readily available today. These are hydr...

Existing Infrastructure: Can use a wide variety of fuels like ethanol, methanol or natural gas which are readily available today. These are hydrogen-carrying fuels with significantly higher energy density than compressed hydrogen.

Overall, Proof Energy Fuel cells provide an optimum balance of performance and cost.

Additionally, Key environmental benefits include:
Zero carbon particulate (“soot”) emissions
Zero NOx & SOx emissions
Reduced CO2 emissions versus other conventional electricity generation sources (coal, diesel etc),

When using bio-ethanol fuel Proof Energy fuel cells will deliver zero-emissions, carbon-neutral power generation as the crops grown for bio-fuel production (typically corn or sugarcane) consume more CO2 than is emitted by the SOFC Power Modules.
