Fuelcell Energy says it has developed a brand new fuel cell energy card that is a “revolutionary device” that can help people with certain cancers and other serious illnesses.
Fuelcell says the card uses energy from the sun to produce electricity, so patients with cancer, glaucoma, and other illnesses are getting better as a result.
The card has an energy density of 2.1 watt-hours per kilogram, or 1.6 times that of a conventional power supply.
It can be used as a backup generator, and is available to customers in the United States, the United Kingdom, and China.
FuelCell says the new card is a major step forward in its quest to be the first battery company to be able to supply power from renewable energy sources, with the ability to sell power directly to consumers.
“We believe we can be the leader in powering the next generation of energy sources with our new fuelcell energy card,” said Richard Grosz, Chief Executive Officer of FuelCell Energy.
“Our fuelcell card offers consumers the best of both worlds, with all the benefits of a battery pack without the high cost and hassle of battery packs.”
We’ve seen tremendous demand for the fuelcell power card and we have a lot of faith in the potential of the technology and its ability to provide the benefit of fuel cell power, particularly for patients with specific conditions that require energy,” he added.
Fuel Cell Energy is one of several fuel cell companies that have recently announced new power sources to provide energy to their customers.
Other companies include SunPower, Sierra Nevada Corp., and Xcel Energy.
