D.O.X has secured a distribution agreement with 2 fuel cell manufacturers to bring their product to the US. We will be engaging with Southern California Gas on a pilot install with Solid Power’s BlueGEN 1.5kW residential system to be placed in a home microgrid with IO batteries and IO controls. This pilot will mirror the findings that was concluded by Microsoft in their data center in Seattle, but on a residential installation.
Whether in existing buildings or in new buildings, the BlueGEN is the ideal solution to supply a residential building with electricity. In-house generation makes you independent of rising electricity prices and at the same time reduces the load on the grids. And thanks to the uniquely high efficiency of BlueGEN fuel cell technology , you also reduce your CO 2 footprint.
The BlueGEN can be combined with almost any heating system and supports this with up to 200 liters of hot domestic water per day. In combination with solar thermal and heat pumps, the BlueGEN can also make a significant contribution to increasing the efficiency of the entire energy system. The BlueGEN is ideal for larger single-family houses, apartment buildings, passive and low-energy houses, and all other forms of residential buildings with increased electricity requirements.
With the BlueGEN you produce your own electricity on site and can thus significantly reduce your company's energy costs. The highly efficient fuel cell technology enables environmentally friendly energy generation that underlines the sustainability of a company.
Due to the comparatively low heat emission, the BlueGEN can not only be operated all year round, but can also be used wherever there is only a low heat requirement. If additional heat is required, the BlueGEN can be combined with almost any heating system. This makes the BlueGEN ideal for small and medium-sized companies with a continuous base load power requirement, such as permanent lighting, cooling facilities or server rooms.

Learn how Microsoft has been innovating with datacenter energy to gain efficiencies and become more environmentally friendly, using Fuel Cells.
Combined Heat and Power units (CHP) generate power onsite, using natural gas. Unlike normal generators, CHP and Fuel Cells provide a consistent and reliable flow of energy to buildings while emitting substantially less pollutants. CHP units are not affected by clouds or power outages, can be utilized to produce free heat for domestic and commercial use. Though avoiding transmission line inefficiencies, CHPs are generally are fifty percent more carbon friendly than traditional utility power.
D.O.X does not believe claims of companies which promise complete resiliency utilizing only solar and batteries alone, simply because mankind cannot control the weather. Based on real-world data, D.O.X has seen the need for a tertiary source of energy that can add further redundancy to a microgrid solution.
D.O.X has recognized the need for decarbonization. However, we must also address the immediate needs of our society. Without a tangible solution that might supplement PV and battery arrays, customers will continue to depend on dirty backup generators. D.O.X clients have also actually enjoyed substantive emission reductions due to the utilizations of natural gas fuel cells and CHP technology, since on-site generation does not suffer the transmission losses which plague utility power, and since D.O.X brokers independent third party deregulated gas solutions, which are accompanied by green carbon credits.
D.O.X technologies are designed to go above and beyond Air Quality Management District standards.
