Batteries, Methanol, or Hydrogen?
Why not all of them?
At Advent, we have deployed more than 1,000 systems for critical backup, defense, mobility, and telecom applications in the most remote locations and harshest environments. We are practical and know what works in the real world, not just in the lab.
With Serene Power Systems, refilling and fuel logistics are simplified, being almost identical to any other fossil fuel. But methanol is greener today than diesel, and will be 100% green tomorrow.
The 3 primary types of methanol:
Grey methanol (made from natural gas) reduces CO2 emissions by 40% and eliminates NOx SOx and other pollutants. Already this is cleaner than repowering from the grid in many countries.
Biomethanol (available today) reduces CO2 emissions by 80% and eliminates NOx SOx and other pollutants. This is cleaner than repowering from the grid in virtually all locations.
eMethanol is the fuel of the future, made by green hydrogen. eMethanol is simply the packaging of the power of wind and the sun in a bottle, and Advent Fuel Cells convert it to electricity on board. New eMethanol plants are launched every year, and we expect that soon, this will be the primary fuel option to be considered. eMethanol is the net-zero (100% emission reduction) shipping fuel of the immediate future.
So, when you ask if we use batteries, methanol, or hydrogen, our answer is YES.
All of them.
