(source: Nikkei BP) Yamanashi Prefectural Enterprise Bureau will introduce three units of a new pure hydrogen-type fuel cell system (0.7kW per unit) to "Yume Solar House Yamanashi," a facility that is powered by renewable energy-derived electricity generated in house on a trial basis and open to the public, in October or November 2016. With the introduction, the bureau aims to establish a system that can be operated with almost no grid electricity even during nighttime hours. Yume Solar House Yamanashi is an exhibition facility related to renewable energy and has a peak dem...
