Energy generation

GeoPura was founded to help source enough clean energy to electrify our global economy and navigate the logistical issues of getting this renewable energy to where it is needed.

Energy generation

Transition to net-zero

Activities that currently rely on fossil fuels such as transport, heating, and off-grid power generation will need to either transition to zero-emission fuels or be electrified and supplied with scalable, zero-emission electricity.

Our electricity networks were never designed to cope with the mass electrification of today’s global activities and operations. Although some of the world’s high voltage transmission systems are generally considered to have sufficient capacity, the relatively low capacity of local distribution networks, the cables down streets, and local substations, will rapidly become a significant problem. In many countries, the existing grid infrastructure is already being supported by diesel generators in order to deliver reliable power.

Conversion to clean energy is particularly challenging in sectors such as construction, events, media, etc where there is no grid availability and reliance on off-grid power is critical and currently dependent on the staggering global fleet of diesel generators.

The world has huge challenges to overcome in terms of network capacity and generating the increasing amount of clean, green energy needed, and future planning must focus on providing large-scale clean electricity storage and delivery outside of existing networks.

Green hydrogen

The fuel of the future

Green hydrogen is widely considered the fuel of the future, providing an answer to the climate issues we are facing.

Green hydrogen effectively stores renewable energy for use at a later date, enabling renewable energy to become an even greater contributor to our global energy needs and navigate current limitations relating to weather conditions.

The end-to-end process of producing green hydrogen with renewable energy and burning it in a fuel cell system to produce energy is entirely emissions-free.

Swapping our energy production to renewable sources and storing energy as green hydrogen will enable us to deliver as much zero-emissions, clean energy as we require: anywhere in the world. GeoPura are successfully delivering this technology at scale, using our HPUs to provide vast amounts of clean off-grid energy for an infinite number of applications and scenarios.

Our technology

Green hydrogen production

If you generate hydrogen using water electrolysis and a renewable energy source such as solar or wind, you produce zero-carbon green hydrogen.

Water Electrolysis

  • An electrical current is passed through water using two electrodes
  • Hydrogen appears as gas bubbles at the cathode – where the electrons enter the water
  • Oxygen appears as gas bubbles at the anode
  • The separated hydrogen is pressurised and collected in hydrogen tanks that are then collected, transported, and stored.

Our technology

Using hydrogen as a fuel

When hydrogen is ‘burnt’ in a fuel cell it produces heat and electricity with the only ‘exhaust’ being water (H2O), making it entirely emissions-free.

Fuel Cell Technology

  • A fuel cell consists of two electrodes — one negative and one positive (anode and cathode)
  • The electrodes are separated by an electrolyte
  • A fuel, such as hydrogen, is fed to the anode, and air is fed to the cathode.
  • A catalyst separates hydrogen atoms into protons and electrons which then both travel to the cathode
  • The electrons go through an external circuit, creating a flow of electricity.
  • The protons migrate through the electrolyte to the cathode, where they reunite with oxygen and the electrons to produce H2O and a little heat

Green Hydrogen is the Future

Renewable, emissions-free production

When renewable energy is used to produce hydrogen through water electrolysis the entire process is 100% emissions-free.

Renewable energy storage

Renewable energy production and generation rely on the weather and local conditions, and generators experience peaks and troughs. Using peak production times to create green hydrogen is a way to store excess capacity.

A solution to the growing market

Our economy is being decarbonized and electrified. Green hydrogen can be used directly as a fuel or to generate 100% renewable, emissions-free electricity to meet this growing demand for clean energy.

Off-grid production and generation

Transporting green hydrogen as either a gas or liquid enables vast amounts of electricity to be generated locally using fuel cell technology. This means that hydrogen can be produced and increased electricity demand can be managed outside of local grid constraints.

Clean energy

The only by-product of generating electricity with a fuel cell and green hydrogen is heat and pure H2O
