Upcoming Webinar April 17: Fuel Cells at NASCAR
April 11, 2014
On April 17 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, the Fuel Cell Technologies Office will present a webinar on fuel cell use at NASCAR Green. Presented by NASCAR and Acumentrics, this webinar will focus on the use of solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) generators for use in powering broadcast cameras for NASCAR. Recently, Acumentrics Corporation completed a field test program with NASCAR to replace small portable gasoline generators with SOFC units operational on commercial propane. These generators demonstrated considerable fuel savings and emission reductions compared to the standard solution while providing reduced noise and vibration and allowing remote dispatch. With these attributes, these units have proven to be a viable power alternative for broadcasting needs for a host of different applications. The attributes of this latest generation power solution compared to the internal combustion engine will be detailed as well as the lessons learned and potential paths forward.
