The UN’s climate panel, IPCC’s recent report on climate changes predicts massive impact on environment due to global heating. And we have seen already, how these climate challenges interfere with our everyday lives, in some cases to catastrophic degrees.
It seems the world is beginning to realize the seriousness of this area. It is all a matter of choice (priorities), action, not least timing. The fact is reductions in CO2 emissions can be met by already existing technologies. Fuel cells running on green methanol as stand-alone or in hybrids with wind- or solar represents a green, clean, future choice for continuous, back-up or portable power.
A major and relevant concern from decision makers is the maturity of alternative technologies. Obviously, no-one is willing to compromise on reliability. Nonetheless, to reduce CO2 emissions, business can transit to green, clean power alternatives and at the same time enhance reliability of operations.
The technology of fuel cell stands out remarkably to deal with climate harshness in terms of robustness and resilience. It thus closes not only the gab to avoid further impacts of future climate changes (by reducing CO2 emissions) but is ideal also for existing areas challenged by harsh weather conditions.
