The uniqueness of our approach is that this packaged and delivered energy system will allow an individual the ability to create their own private energy generation and storage system, (A Renewable Hydrogen Smart Micro Grid or Nano Grid) and have their own hydrogen infrastructure instead of waiting on the world to pay for and build one they could use.
With most of our people Individually Energy Independent™, then by connecting the dots the national infrastructure gets built. This same system, perfected on the individual small scale application, can then be scaled up to fill in the blanks by installing these systems in larger sizes right on site of all existing fuel stations or major box store retailers, transitioning hydrogen into the commercial market.
All of the products needed to make this work already exists and are proven technologies. The wind turbines and solar panels are ready now and are becoming very cost effective. The storage of hydrogen is not the mystery everyone seems to report because with on site production 6,000 psi is sufficient, carbon fiber and steel tanks are ready for market now that will hold 6,000 to 10,000 psi safely.
As far as compression, our hydrogen generator will compress the hydrogen to 150 psi and we have a few different options we are providing to take the pressure on up to 6000 psi and 10,000 psi from there. Fuel Cell cars are now being offered by a 3 companies to consumers now in California and over 5,000 are on the road. There are currently more than 20,000 fuel cell forklifts running in distribution centers in the USA today.
What has been missing from the equation is affordable and safe onsite hydrogen production and dispensing that can be matched up with an individual need or local demand. MRE now has 10 SHFAs (Scale-able Hydrogen Fueling Appliances) that have received a Certificate of Attestation from CSA (Canadian Standards Association) to meet the requirements of CSA IR 3-18 which spells out all of the critical codes and standards the SHFAs are built to. CSA is a third party Internationally recognized laboratory. This Document and the Attestation from CSA together give permitting officials the confidence they need to issue permits to install these systems were needed.
One other unique feature is our Hydrogen Generator is more cost effective than our nearest competitor. It is scale-able from 2.5 cubic feet per hour up to 2,961 scf/hr. and it provides waste heat to a building as a byproduct.
MRE is currently developing a Mega Watt class electrolyzer that could be capable of producing 168 kilograms per day on site. This system in units of 3 will consume about 1 mega watt of energy and make about 500 kilograms per day. These Mega Harvesters TM could be matched up with wind and solar farms to store massive amounts of renewable energy for use at more optimal times at much less per kilowatt hour than batteries once the production plant is in place. They could also supply the back end support to MRE’s future networks of onsite hydrogen fueling stations as the demand for the hydrogen produced on site climbs above the space available. Hydrogen from the Mega Harvesters could be trucked to the fueling stations to provide back fill to meet the demand. The trucks themselves could even run on the very hydrogen they are delivering.
