Israel based provider of hydrogen alkaline based fuel cell system, GenCellEnergy has introduced innovative GenCell EVOX™, a new off-grid EV charging solution that leverages alkaline fuel cells, hydrogen and ammonia to power technologies.
The solution has been designed to resolve range anxiety and grid limitations by generating green, grid-independent, on-site power that can charge EVs anytime, anywhere.
The green, grid-independent hydrogen-based GenCell EVOX™ enables charging anytime, anywhere – preventing emissions and counteracting the stress on power grids that is increasing as EVs become more widespread.
GenCell has developed a new type of charging solution, EVOX™, which provides 100% green energy and can be distributed around the world along highways and virtually anywhere EVs travel where grid connectivity is inadequate.
Instead, the GenCell EVOX™ solution, which is currently in deployment to deliver EV charging services to several commercial parking projects in Israel, helps overcome this shortage of electricity and grid stress, both in remote locations where transmission infrastructure is lacking as well as in densely populated areas where the demand for a large quantity of EVs puts high pressure on the grid.
The GenCell EVOX™ solution can service up to ten 75kW DC fast chargers. Leveraging the proven hydrogen-based fuel cell technology used in the GenCell BOX™ with up to 920kWh stored as hydrogen together with a 372 – 500kWh energy storage device, each GenCell EVOX™ solution generates a reliable, uninterrupted flow of power in any weather conditions to ensure that the charging station has sufficient power to charge vehicles visiting the station at any time – improving customer experience and shortening lag-time.
This official launch of GenCell EVOX™ follows the deployment of GenCell’s first off-grid EV charging stations in June 2022, implemented with E.V. Motors Pure Energy the EV charging subsidiary of E.V. Motors Ltd., at key locations across Israel’s roadways in a deal valued at US$5 million.
Commenting on the new launch, Rami Reshef, CEO GenCell, said: “This launch is excellent news for site owners, EV charging service providers and environmentalists alike. The EVOX™ can be deployed quickly anywhere, it’s scalable, and it will go a long way towards eliminating range anxiety for EV drivers.”
“EVOX™ brings triple the value to our customers – not only off-grid power for EV charging stations, but also backup power in case of outages as well as power to sell-to-grid in the event of peak load demands.”
“With many more EVs on the roads, and more to come in the next few years, these solutions will play a crucial role in allowing EV and charging vendors to deliver operational continuity while achieving zero-emissions. Transportation is responsible for 25 to 30% of global carbon emissions; technologies like this that can accelerate wide scale EV adoption by facilitating faster and more economical scale-up of EV charging infrastructure offer an excellent way to decarbonize transportation. I’m very proud of the GenCell team for developing EVOX™, and as we move ahead with our ammonia and green ammonia technologies, we will have an even greater impact on the future of EV charging.”
