Hoppecke and Truma partner for LPG fuel cell backup power systems: German companies Hoppecke and Truma have fo...

Hoppecke Batterien is partnering with Truma Gerätetechnik to cooperate in the field of grid-independent power supply systems. Hoppecke is using Truma fuel cells in its grid.systemizer backup power systems to generate electricity. Hoppecke is a leading manufacturer of industrial batteries, charging devices, and energy systems, while Truma produces high-performance fuel cell systems that generate electric power from LPG (propane and/or butane). Hoppecke is displaying a grid.systemizer backup system in the Group Exhibit Hydrogen + Fuel Cells (Hall 27, Stand B70) at next week’s Hannover Messe trade fair in Germany. The Truma VeGA fuel cell system converts LPG into hydrogen in a fuel processor (reformer), then generates electric power via an electrochemical reaction in a high-temperature PEM fuel cell. This is a very clean power supply, with only a small quantity of CO2 produce...
