Doosan Fuel Cell displayed how hydrogen fuel cells are employed in key infrastructure. As Doosan fleet can operate 24/7, they are able to provide electricity and heat in a stable manner, which makes them best suited for powering and heating infrastructure and residential buildings. In addition, swift output control compensates intermittency and volatility of renewables, such as wind and solar. Doosan’s fuel cells are fueled by natural gas, LPG as well as hydrogen, reducing fuel dependency.


“One fuel cell generates 440kW which powers 1,000 to 2,000 households,” said Junseok Kim, head of Marketing team of Doosan. “Our fuel cells generate electricity and heat simultaneously with more than 90% efficiency.”

“Doosan Fuel Cell is taking the lead in ushering in the hydrogen society. Fuel cells are versatile as a clean energy source. Electricity generated from our units benefits smart farms as fuel cells are more efficient than other conventional generators. It also creates value for data centers as these facilities require best quality of power and reliability. Installing fuel cells in the vicinity of ports would help make them cleaner ports without emitting pollutants,” said Sangjin Moon, vice president of R&D/New business division of Doosan Fuel Cell. “We are the ‘First Mover’ that is helping shape our hydrogen future for all people.”
