1 Fuel Cell Extended Runtime Stationary Power Datacenter Angelo Monteleone Business Development Manager November 2013

2 SHIFT POWER | ENERGIZE YOUR WORLD There is a power shift happening worldwide From fossil fuels to a blend of renewable, accessible alternatives From volatility to user-controlled supply management From excess waste and emissions to sustainable energy inventories and zero-emissions From single-resource dependence to multi-purpose energy architectures From thinking backward to rebuilding energy confidence in the future 2 CoverTel Power exists to accelerate this power shift by engineering and building the technologies needed to make it happen.

3 Extended Run-time UPS with Fuel Cells

4 Data Centre UPS Ideal Requirements  Compact, high-density power generators in the racks next to the loads  Unlimited energy storage, moved out of the data room  Modular, plug-in power generation units, easy installation, interface and commissioning with standard UPS models  Easy future upgrade for increased power by adding modules and racks  No decay* due to operation  No decay* due to disuse (dormancy)  No decay* due to start/stop cycling  No periodic start-up requirement  Safety requirements easily met  Reduced or eliminated maintenance requirements  Lower overall costs than pure battery solution  Exactly predictable run-time  Run-time easily further extended while operating online * - performance as well as reliability!
