Center for Hydrogen Research
Aiken, South Carolina
EmPower designed, developed, and oversaw the installation of a hybrid Solar-Hydrogen Energy System, incorporating solar arrays, a hydrogen fuel-cell and electrolyzer. The solar system was the primary energy source used to fuel desired processes to supply critical demand and back-up hydrogen. In addition, a "Solar Park" was constructed demonstrating multiple solar technologies. Besides system design, EmPower selected system components, wrote bid documents, oversaw the selection and hiring of subcontractors, performed on-site final inspections and directed the commissioning process.
TMBA is an engineering-driven firm. We were looking for a highly technical installation with a quality of support that would assure us that the system would produce value over an extended period of time. In our opinion, EmPower was the only bidder that really met that requirement.Ted Bier
