Millennium Reign Energy of Englewood, Ohio, held a demonstration day to educate the public about the success of fuel cell technology. The company demonstrated its line of fuel cell infrastructure products and General Motor’s Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell Vehicle.
Over the past eight years, Millennium Reign Energy has been developing products to build the hydrogen fueling infrastructure. The company’s demonstration showcased two of its unique products, including a hydrogen production appliance called the AutoARK, a patent-pending, automated, passive alkaline water electrolysis unit that cogenerates heat and a one-of-a-kind scalable hydrogen fueling appliance that compresses, stores and dispenses hydrogen into vehicles.
The Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell Vehicle was on hand to serve as the demonstration vehicle to promote these fuel cell products. This vehicle is one of 100 of General Motor’s prototype fuel cell vehicles. The trial program, called Project Driveway and established in 2007, has logged more than two million miles. General Motors expects to have the fuel cell vehicles ready for commercial production by 2015.
This event gave the public an opportunity to see present success of fuel cell technology as well as a glimpse of the future possibilities it could bring to reduce emissions and fuel costs. Millennium Reign Energy launched Ohio’s first fuel cell hydrogen station last year, and it hopes to continue implementing hydrogen fuel infrastructure throughout the United States.
