GenCell fuel cells powering mission-critical projects in the Middle East

In a world suffering from the increasingly grave impact of climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions, much of which result from the combustion of fossil fuels, GenCell Energy is working around the clock to develop innovative alkaline fuel cell solutions that offer affordable, clean back-up and off-grid power for humanity to render diesel generators obsolete. Leveraging ultra-reliable technology that powers spacecrafts, but with patented innovations that have dramatically reduced their costs to make them affordable for mainstream applications, GenCell’s fuel cell offering delivers long-duration, minimal maintenance back-up power for mission-critical applications at utilities, homeland security, healthcare and automated industry facilities.

Since launching its first product back in 2016 – the GenCell G5™ long-duration UPS back-up power solution, the Israel-based company has deployed the technology in 18 countries around the world, with its most recent application arguably being one of the most memorable.

Israel’s first “Green Label” hospital

After several years of planning and preparation, GenCell announced in January (2021) receiving a first-of-its-kind permit from the Electricity Authority for a long-duration UPS solution utilising fuel cells to provide back-up power to critical intensive care units at a green standard hospital in Israel, the company’s birthplace. Established in the 1950s, the medical centre houses a trauma centre, education, training and research facilities serving a diverse population of approximately 450,000 people. The facility was also the first hospital in Israel to be granted a “Green Label” from the Israel Standards and Ministry of Environmental Protection for its efforts to protect the environment.
