Advent Technologies Holdings, Inc., an innovation-driven leader in the fuel cell and hydrogen technology space, has unveilled the SereneP, a cutting-edge product line set to redefine portable power solutions with a particular focus on construction and EV charging applications.

  • Construction sites, and EV charging station Applications: SereneP caters to a wide array of power applications, including construction sites, remote EV charging stations, microgrid support, critical infrastructure applications, events, and concerts, as well as providing reliable backup power for buildings and camps.
  • Environmental Benefits: 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.
  • Rugged and Reliable: 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.
  • Competitive: 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 Technologies has established a global network of fuel suppliers, guaranteeing its clients a steady methanol supply for SereneP.

In Denmark, 14 of the largest public sector builders have signaled that they will impose a requirement for contractors to use emission-free work machines at building and construction project sites. As a significant advancement in addressing this need, the SereneP product line was officially introduced in November 2023 by Advent, during an event organized by Denmark’s National Centre for Public-Private Sector Innovation in Copenhagen. Furthermore, the UK also aims to eliminate diesel use on most construction sites. Currently, around 300,000 Non-Road Mobile Machinery2 units in the UK construction industry run on diesel, consuming 2.5 million tons of oil equivalent and producing significant carbon emissions. The Zero Diesel Sites Route Map outlines steps to reduce this volume by 78% by 2035, in line with the UK’s 2021 Sixth Carbon Budget goals.

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. Recognizing 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.”
