Energy solutions company Power Innovations has successfully powered a full data centre sever load for 48 continuous hours with hydrogen fuel cells, doubling its previous record of 24 hours achieved last year.
The Utah-based company set out with an aim to prove that hydrogen power is a viable, long duration, pollution-free solution to data centres’ primary and back up power needs, which kickstarted the trial.
The result, a new record for hydrogen-generated computer backup power by running multiple automotive fuel cells in parallel to generate more than 10,560 kWh of pollution-free electricity in 48 hours.
“This new benchmark demonstrates the emerging superiority of hydrogen fuel cells for widespread use not only in data centres, but anywhere organisations need zero-carbon, reliable, grid-free power,” said Robert Mount, President and CEO of Power Innovations.
