New Focus on Fuel Cell Electric Aircraft

New Focus on Fuel Cell Electric Aircraft

Ten years ago, IDTechEx correctly predicted that fuel cell cars would be a failure. Fuel cells are more promising for aircraft compared to cars because aircraft, particularly eVTOL, have severe safety issues caused by cold, old or faulty batteries, the longer ranges being currently impossible.

Largest Off-Grid Solar Battery System for Mining Industry

The Fekola gold mine operates 24-hours a day. During the daytime, the new 30 MW solar plant allows three out of six heavy fuel oil generators to be shut down; the energy production of the residual three generators could also be significantly reduced. The 15.4 MWh battery storage compensates energy generation fluctuations and assures a reliable operation, which allows up to 75% of the electricity demand of the gold mine to be covered by renewable energy during the daytime.
