Energy consumption is on the rise and the effects of pollution on our planet are undeniable. Like never before, the choices we make today are important and will determine the future.
Veridyne Power’s mission is to provide a pragmatic, economical and environmentally sustainable energy solution for both Grid and Distributed Power applications. Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) can operate with many hydrocarbon fuels. However by focusing on coal (a natural resource that is virtually unlimited in supply) Veridyne Power’s design can offer aging and outdated Coal Fired Power plants the ability to produce the same electrical output, using 50% less coal, with zero smog and a minimum of 50% reduction in CO2 emissions. This new technology is a key energy solution to the sustainability of our planet.
Veridyne Power’s head office is based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
