Advent was founded in 2006, recognizing that world resources are limited and therefore calling out for energy solutions which respect nature and are compatible with existing infrastructures. We decided to work for a model not only compatible with the sustainable vision for clean energies but also highly compatible with business – in promise of global turnkey solutions, remotely monitored and locally serviced. Our DNA, our technology, is methanol.
Methanol is an excellent liquid energy carrier, and it is stored and transported using conventional methods. Therefore, methanol can be an excellent solution for storing energy from renewable sources like solar and wind. Compared to other liquid fuels, the methanol steam reforming process operates at low temperatures which avoid unnecessary losses of energy. Also, methanol can be produced in clean, efficient CO2 neutral ways, from either biomass or various Power-to-Liquid or Power-to-X technologies.
Fuel cells are renewable if the fuel used is a renewable energy source. When fueled by green methanol, fuel cells must be regarded as renewable energy as it is CO2 neutral.
Our technology and our solutions are today world-class standards. Our organization is a mix of competencies, know-how, passion, pride and a constant push for businesses to adopt clean, renewable energy. We are in a phase of streamlining our processes and building up our distribution globally via networks of partners. Since 2006, we have deployed more than a thousand fuel cell units globally and we are proud to have a set of fully documented cases, successfully demonstrating the worth of fuel cells as a green, reliable and efficient option.
