million CAD, the fuel cell generates heat and electricity from hydrogen and oxygen to, and half emitting less carbon dioxide than traditional sources of energy and 99% less particulate pollutants.
With an output of 200kW, the battery opened about 10% of energy needs NAIT during the preliminary tests, to heat the pool and showers the Activity Center. Designed initially to produce 1 million kWh during the first phase, the battery has exceeded all expectations with performance exceeding 1,4 million kWh,
increased 40% of DESIRED CAPACITY.
A smaller fuel cell should be installed on campus
