Advent Technologies launches portable clean power solution for construction and EV charging applications

Advent’s SereneP offers unparalleled flexibility, configurable to exact power needs ranging from 10kVA to 300kVA. It combines a battery and a fuel cell, and operates seamlessly on liquid green fuels like methanol, biomethanol, or eMethanol. SereneP can be readily mobilised to a diverse range of locations, ensuring power where it’s needed the most.

SereneP is the epitome of eco-friendly power generation, offering 80% CO2 emissions reduction with biomethanol and up to 100% reduction in CO2 emissions with eFuel use when compared to traditional fossil fuel power sources. SereneP outperforms battery-only systems charged from the grid in many countries and regions in terms of net emissions. The system’s load-following capabilities ensure optimal fuel efficiency while dynamically adjusting power output to match specific load requirements, reducing operational costs and environmental impact.

Engineered to withstand diverse environments, SereneP functions flawlessly in ambient temperatures ranging from -20°C to 50°C. Its reliance on liquid green fuels ensures simple and cost-effective logistics.

Battery-only systems are not ideal for off-grid applications because they require continuous relocation to the grid or other power source for recharging. Diesel generators emit harmful emissions and noise, as well as representing substantial risk of fuel theft. Pure hydrogen systems incur substantial costs associated with fuel sourcing, storage, and transportation in off-grid locations. SereneP, in contrast, addresses all of these challenges by leveraging the advantages of liquid eFuels, offering a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution with significant carbon reductions, and virtually unlimited capacity.

Unlike traditional grid charging, SereneP’s fuel cell charges its batteries, enabling virtually limitless green power generation even during grid outages, dependent only on the availability of liquid green fuel. The Methanol Institute is tracking over 801 global projects focused on renewable methanol, projecting an annual output of eMethanol and Biomethanol in excess of eight million metric tons by 2027. In addition, Advent has established a global network of fuel suppliers, guaranteeing its clients a steady methanol supply for SereneP.

Dr. Vasilis Gregoriou, Advent’s Chairman and CEO, commented: “We are confident that SereneP is well-positioned to efficiently replace diesel generators in construction and other global applications. Recognising a specific market need within the construction rental sector, where upcoming regulations are expected to prohibit diesel gensets, SereneP is ideally positioned as a valuable solution available today. We are currently engaged in discussions with industry-leading companies looking to phase out diesel, who view SereneP as the way forward. As a result, SereneP becomes an integral component of our sales strategy, allowing us to play a pivotal role in meeting the evolving demand for clean and highly portable power across construction and beyond.”
