Cleaning Up the Power Sector to Sustainably Solve All Energy-related Challenges

Human beings are known for a myriad of different things, but most importantly, they are known for getting better on a consistent basis. This tendency to improve, no matter the situation, has already fetched the world some huge milestones, with technology appearing as a rather unique member of the stated group. The reason why technology’s credentials are so anomalous is purposed around its skill-set, which was unprecedented enough to realize all the possibilities for us that we couldn’t have imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, a closer look should be able to reveal how the whole runner was also very much inspired by the way we applied those skills across a real-world environment. The latter component was, in fact, what gave the creation a spectrum-wide presence and made it the ultimate centerpiece of every horizon. Now, having such a powerful tool run the show did expand our experience in many different directions, but even after reaching so far ahead, this prodigious concept called technology will somehow keep on delivering the right goods. The same has grown to become a lot more evident in recent times, and assuming one new green energy-themed development shakes out just like we envision, it will only make that trend bigger and better moving forward.

Advent Technologies Holdings Inc., an innovation-driven leader in the fuel cell and hydrogen technology space, has officially announced the launch of a clean and cutting-edge product line called SereneP, which will redefine portable power solutions with a particular focus on birthing greener construction and EV charging applications. According to certain reports, SereneP will deliver at your disposal never-seen-before flexibility in this area, and by that, we mean it will bring solutions configurable to exact power needs ranging from 10kVA to 300kVA. Open to get readily mobilized to a diverse range of locations and ensure power reaches where it’s needed the most, the stated product will, in practice, place battery technology alongside a fuel cell for the purpose of operating seamlessly on liquid green fuels like methanol, biomethanol, or eMethanol. Talk about what exactly makes SereneP an environment-friendly product, the answer to that resides in how it offers 80% CO2 emissions reduction with biomethanol and up to 100% reduction in CO2 emissions with eFuel use when compared to traditional fossil fuel power sources. Furthermore, it outperforms battery-only systems charged from the grid in many countries and regions in terms of net emissions. Complimenting the same are these load-following capabilities that help ensure optimal fuel efficiency, while simultaneously adjusting power output to match specific load requirements. Such a mechanism, like you can guess, should go a long way when it comes to reducing operational costs and detrimental environmental impact. Next up, we must get into SereneP product line’s rugged and reliable nature, which means the solutions in play here can seamlessly function in and around ambient temperatures ranging from -20°C to 50°C. Not just reliability, the line-up’s compatibility with liquid green fuels contributes a lot to facilitate simple and cost-effective brand of logistics.

Now, in order to understand the importance of the said development, we have to understand how it outperforms current technologies used for a similar purpose. You see, battery-only systems, let’s say, are not ideal for off-grid applications because they require continuous relocation to the grid or other power source for recharging. Diesel generators, on their part, pose a problem of emitting harmful emissions and noise, and even if that is set aside for a second, they still represent a substantial risk of fuel theft. Given the limitations of these mediums, people did turn to pure hydrogen systems, but that can only be availed in exchange of a substantial cost proposition, a proposition which has always been associated with intensive tasks like fuel sourcing, storage, and transportation to off-grid locations. Having discussed that, Advent’s take resolves the said issues in one go, and it does so by allowing us to leverage the advantages of liquid eFuels, thus presenting no challenge whatsoever in terms of environmental and financial aspects. The thing it does present, however, is virtually unlimited production capacity. The last bit is made possible by SereneP’s ability to charge itself. Furthermore, as the whole technology is dependent on methanol to work, Advent has already established a global network of fuel suppliers so to guarantee its clients have a steady methanol supply for SereneP at all times.

Rounding things off with possible cases for a method like this one, the list would include construction sites, remote EV charging stations, microgrid support, critical infrastructure applications, events, and concert. It can also be used to generate a backup power reserve for buildings and camps.

“We are confident that SereneP is well-positioned to efficiently replace diesel generators in construction and other global applications. Recognizing a specific market need within the construction rental sector, where upcoming regulations are expected to prohibit diesel gensets, SereneP is ideally positioned as a valuable solution available today. We are currently engaged in discussions with industry-leading companies looking to phase out diesel, who view SereneP as the way forward. As a result, SereneP becomes an integral component of our sales strategy, allowing us to play a pivotal role in meeting the evolving demand for clean and highly portable power across construction and beyond,” said Dr. Vasilis Gregoriou, Chairman and CEO of Advent Technologies.

Founded in 2006, Advent Technologies has risen up largely on the back of its ability to discover, manufacture, and assemble new fuel cell systems, and at the same time, supply customers with critical components for fuel cells in the renewable energy sector. The company does so through a line-up of more than 150 issued, pending, and/or licensed patents. Other than that, Advent also holds the IP for next-generation HT-PEM which enables various fuels to function at high temperatures and under extreme conditions.
