Fuel batteries may be used in UPS power applications

People's research on energy storage power has been continuously deepening, and they want to create more energy storage systems to inject more power support for power applications. Fuel storage batteries are currently the research focus of many businesses. Fuel storage batteries use waste heat to generate electricity to supply primary or backup power. They are an alternative power that continues to heat up. After conversion of chemical power to supply electrical energy, it uses an oxidant to convert fuel into electricity. Fuel storage batteries can be used in commercial and industrial houses, but they have no application space in data centers.   The current fuel cell manufacturer ClearEdge Power is planning to make up for this flaw. They hope that the data can also use gasoline-based fuel cells as the initial power system, and the grid as an emergency use. Mike Upp, vice president of marketing, thinks this will be an 'evolutionary type of traditional backup system.' Because 'what we do is the initial UPS power supply, and the grid is the backup!'    Upp thinks that if the data intermediate operator purchases fuel cells, it will find that the friendly power is relatively cheap and more reliable than other alternative power, wind and solar It's too unchanged. Upp said that ClearEdge is used as an intermediate purpose for data development in selected areas, including California, South Korea and Australia, and even New York. These areas are characterized by high power rates, and the authorities encourage or require the purchase of alternative power systems.   In California, the power rate ranges from 17% per kWh to 23% per kWh. And Upp said: 'If the ClearEdge 9% per kilowatt-hour product is used, the gap is very clear.' This means that it is less expensive than the grid. But he also added that with regard to the local UPS power supply market with moderate energy application and no intervention by the authorities, if the power grid is unreliable, fuel cells will still be needed. Unless there is a mandatory requirement for green, fuel cells will still be safer.   After continuous research and advancement, the application of fuel batteries to UPS power supplies will no longer be a dream, and fuel batteries will also provide reliable power protection for data centers.
