VANCOUVER, British Columbia and NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Clean Power Capital Corp. (CSE: MOVE)(FWB: 2K6)(OTC: MOTNF) (“Clean Power” or the “Company” or “MOVE”). In light of the recent severe weather in Texas1 causing a strain on the electricity grid and other recent incidents of strain on electricity grids including in California, the Company wishes to highlight the electricity generating capability of the PowerTap modular unit technology. While designing its 3rd generation technology, PowerTap Hydrogen Fueling Corp. (PowerTap) recognized that electricity shortages may be present in key markets where it plans to install its hydrogen fueling stations.
While much less electricity is needed to produce blue hydrogen vs green hydrogen2, PowerTap recognized that electricity shortages may affect the operation of its fueling stations. To address this potential issue, PowerTap’s 3rd Generation Onsite Hydrogen fueling unit will have an industrial hydrogen fuel cell that can be used to turn excess hydrogen into electricity that can be used in various capacities including powering further hydrogen production or the rest of the gas/truck stop operations.Kelley Owen, PowerTap’s Chief Operating Officer noted, “We have taken the patented 2nd generation PowerTap technology which is in use in private and public hydrogen fueling stations in the United States and enhanced the technology for the coming Hydrogen Highway.”About PowerTapThe Company invested in PowerTap on October 27, 2020 (see the Company’s news release on October 28, 2020).
