Hydrogen fuel cells to power mobile networks
Who said hydrogen fuel cells power up just cars? They now power up mobile phone networks too. Developed by Electro Power Systems, this new technology was demonstrated at the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona. It will power up mobile phone networks run by wireless carriers. Known as the ElectroSelf, this hydrogen fuel system can work in extreme climates, needs reduced maintenance and associated costs. With a capacity ranging between 1.5 and 12 kilowatts, three units like these can be installed together. To do away with the hydrogen fuel’s depletion, the ElectroSelf produces water at the same time while generating energy, which is in turn split up again and reused to produce energy. The system requires just a square meter of floor space and can work well in high temperatures too.
A reliable mobile phone network is now a necessity, and with systems like these, we shouldn’t face network problems in the future.
