One of these first steps will be to decarbonise power generation and secure a low-carbon future by using hydrogen and fuel cells.

With new plans, Honda will install a stationary fuel cell power station on its corporate campus in California, US, by 2023.

The new station will operate as a proof of concept for the future commercialisation of power generation using hydrogen fuel cells and will support a range of different applications such as data centres by providing clean back up power.

The power station will utilise fuel cell components from Honda Clarity fuel cells vehicles in a four-quad parallel stationary fuel cell power generation system.

This will be capable of producing up to 1152kW-DC/1MW-AC from an inverter.

Mitsuru Kariya, Senior Vice-President in charge of the R&D Business Unit of American Honda, said, “We will leverage the expertise Honda has established in creating multiple generations of fuel cell systems for the development of a fuel cell power generation station.

“This project is an opportunity to further utilise our strengths in fuel cell technology to more quickly create, assess and advance a clean power generation system for potential commercial customers.”
