The SIQENS Ecoport 800 has been selected for the renowned industry award by a panel of experts and judges. The winner will be crowned at an online ceremony as part of “The smarter E Industry Days” being held between July 21 and 23, 2021.
Since its introduction in 2014, the ees AWARD recognizes pioneering products and solutions for stationary and mobile electrical energy storage systems. The range of innovations covers the entire value chain, including battery technologies, fuel cells, power electronics and other key components that shape the world of clean energy.
The SIQENS Ecoport 800 is designed as an automatic battery charger and replaces diesel generators in off-grid energy systems, as a backup power source, or in mobility applications. Using technical methanol as a globally available fuel, the fuel cell system complements batteries and ensures a highly efficient and stable energy supply throughout the entire year.
SIQENS, founded in Munich in 2012, develops and produces methanol fuel cells. The devices are used as an alternative to diesel generators and are used for backup power, as well as in locations without a fixed connection to the power grid.
The SIQENS fuel cell system, the Ecoport, runs on liquid methanol. Inside the Ecoport, hydrogen is derived from the methanol. The hydrogen then reacts with oxygen to generate electrical energy. The Ecoport is connected to a battery and automatically recharges it as needed. Connected electrical devices are supplied directly from the battery. Thanks to patented circuits for the recovery of process media and energy, the system runs exceptionally efficiently.
In contrast to diesel generators, fuel cells are economical, require hardly any maintenance and emit neither particulate matter nor nitrogen oxides, in addition to significantly reducing CO2 emissions. And with methanol from renewable sources, operation is completely climate-neutral.
