Fuel cell technology is now a viable alternative to generators and extended-run batteries, allowing IT and facility managers more flexibility in the specification, installation, and operation of critical facilities and avoids environmental issues of other sources. This paper briefly explains the use of fuel cell technology in extended runtime applications. A specific fuel cell based extended runtime system has been developed and the paper describes the major system constituents. Substantial size reductions (in terms of footprint) have been achieved compared to battery solutions.
