Headline: "Reverion Unveils Revolutionary Reversible Fuel Cell System at Green Hydrogen Forum, Promises Efficient and Flexible Energy Storage Solution"

Giverion, a spin-off from the Technical University of Munich with over 100 employees, presented their reversible fuel cell system at the Green Hydrogen Forum. Their innovation addresses significant fluctuations in energy generation and consumption depicted by Fraunhofer Institute's residual load chart. Giverion highlighted that current systems are costly and inefficient—estimated at around €150 billion—to manage these shifts using traditional methods. Their solution is a flexible, plug-and-play reversible fuel cell system capable of generating hydrogen when surplus electricity exists and switching to generate renewable electricity during deficits within one minute. This high-efficiency system (75% round efficiency) outperforms conventional systems which recover only 40% of stored electricity and require double investment in both electrolyzers and fuel cells. The containerized design enables easy installation across various operational environments while optimizing utilization compared to typical electrolyzers that remain idle without excess renewable energy. Giverion's approach promises significant cost reductions, efficient intraday trading opportunities due to rapid mode-switching capabilities, and comprehensive management of energy fluctuations for achieving 100% renewable energy generation by 2050.
