Watt Fuel Cell Corp.’s hybrid power manager provides efficient power on demand without engine noise or the smell of exhaust. The system is designed to automatically manage battery state of charge, helping to extend battery life and application run times. The system can serve many markets including Marine and RV, Emergency Response and Remote Power.
“Vacationers, weekend warriors, and Marine and RV enthusiasts no longer need to rely on conventional noisy generators for recharging batteries, lighting, the GPS, TV, communications or refrigeration” said Caine Finnerty, Ph.D., President and CEO of WATT. “With efficiencies up to three times greater than that of a typical generator, boaters using the WATT Fuel Cell System can feel confident that electric loads won’t leave them stranded.”
The fuel cell technology will not just benefit the RV and Marine world; it will also benefit both commercial and government sectors, including the military. “WATT’s hybrid system offers a light weight, quiet and efficient power solution for the needs of a variety of potential markets. It just so happens that WATT is starting with the Marine and RV markets. They say silence is golden, imagine being able to enjoy the great outdoors without the constant drumming of a conventional generator in the background,” added Finnerty.
Watt will be exhibiting its hybrid fuel cell system prototype at the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis, MD, October 8 – 12, 2015.
