Case study: EFOY Energy Solution
Lisia Neyers, Program Manager & David Newman, Vice President Technology
Lumin8 Technologies Services Branch
“During winter months, we used to have to make site trips approximately every month to strictly change out batteries. Each of these trips would take 1 to 2 hours on-site depending on weather conditions, plus travel time. The sites using EFOY fuel cells only require a single trip every two months for fuel cartridge replacements, and each trip takes 30 minutes or less on-site. The EFOY not only reduces our trips out to the site but also reduces the on-site time."
Étude de cas : Radiotélescope ALBATROS (Université McGill)
H. Cynthia Chiang, professeure agrégée de physique, Université McGill
“L’armoire EFOY ProEnergyBox 4060P est la technologie d’alimentation exacte dont nous avions besoin pour les opérations autonomes d’ALBATROS. De par sa nature Prêt à l’emploi, l’armoire EFOY nous permettra de déployer rapidement nos systèmes et sera la clé du déploiement de notre science."
Case study: ALBATROS radio telescope (McGill University)
H. Cynthia Chiang, associate professor of physics, McGill University
“The EFOY Pro Energy Box 4060P is the exact power technology that we needed for ALBATROS autonomous operations. The plug-and-play nature of the EFOY unit will allow us to rapidly deploy our systems and will be key to enabling our science.”
Case study: Hybrid and solar EFOY installation
Derek Crittall – Automation, Canadian Natural Resources Limited (CNRL)
“The EFOY has provided reliable power in a difficult application. Prior to EFOY installation our battery life was as low as five days at certain times of year. We provided SFC with site specific information and they sized our systems accordingly. We now only visit the sites for scheduled PM’s and when we see that the cartridge levels are getting low. This is now scheduled maintenance instead of reactive.”
Case study: Mobile security and surveillance trailers
Derek Boggs, Director of Marketing and Demand Generation, LiveView Technologies
“We are thrilled to partner with EFOY so we can provide rapidly deployed surveillance that is truly capable of operating anywhere on earth—no power, no internet, no problem. EFOY removes our sole dependency on solar power, so in areas where solar is not a viable option, we can still provide cutting edge security. This advancement in hardware paired with our unmatched cloud-based remote monitoring platform solidifies our position as the market leader in enterprise surveillance.”
Case Study: Off-Grid SCADA Solution
Rob Dykman, General Manager – Coast Mountain Wireless, BC, Canada
“Communications can be quite a challenge on British Columbia‘s North Coast. In this mountainous region, the elements can take their toll on communications systems. With decades of service in this region, we‘re familiar with these unique challenges and using EFOY Pro Fuel Cells in a hybrid combination with solar, was the best eco-friendly solution to ensure year round up-time. We chose the solution because of its ability to work autonomously and reliably year round in harsh winter conditions with minimal refueling requirements.”
Case study: Powering essential telecommunications for an autonomous mining operation
Gaétan Lavallière (P.Geo. Ph.D) Vice-Président, Cartier Resources Inc.
“We can finally stop worrying about our generator’s excessive wear, constant maintenance requirement, significant fuel consumption and the risk that it could break down at any moment. We can now refocus our energy on our drilling operations. It was also a relief to the ears of everyone working nearby when we finally shutdown the generator.”
Case study: Surface flux stations – MOSAiC expedition
Matthew Shupe, Senior Research Scientist, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
“During the expedition, we were only able to access our remote sites at infrequent intervals, but through remote monitoring we could ensure that operations were maintained at these sites. Importantly, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our research vessel and all research personnel had to leave the sea ice for more than a month. During this time, the ProEnergyBox kept our systems continuously running during a very important time, allowing our ASFS to capture the important transition that occurs during the onset of the summer melt season.”
Reference Case: Providing a redundant, reliable power supply with remote communication
“We chose the EFOY Pro Hybrid because it offered reliable remote power supply at a low cost. We’ve had a good experience with the EFOY Pro system — no problems so far. We appreciate the remote communication capability of the EFOY and the fact that it will automatically turn on to provide power when needed. I would recommend EFOY Pro, particularly for sites with high power intermittent loads.”

Case Study: District of Meißen
The District office in Meissen, Germany is responsible for protecting citizens and keeping them informed in the event of an emergency. Recently, the office look at ways to handle these duties during a long power outage. They had short term, back-up generators in place, but needed a reliable, long lasting emergency power solution. Find out how the District of Meissen is using EFOY Pro fuel cells to ensure automatic, uninterrupted operation of its emergency network for up to 15 days.
