BWR Innovations partners with Grand Farms to provide the nations first demonstration of a clean energy hydrogen fuel cell enabled micro-grid in North America.

FARGO, NORTH DAKOTA, USA, October 14, 2021 / -- The North Dakota Industrial Commission, recently awarded a Renewable Energy
Council Grant for $332,159 to BWR Innovations for their “SOL Source” Energy Project. This
project will provide the Emerging Prairie’s Grand Farm with a “green”, self-sustaining electrical
energy supply for their operation. BWR-Innovations has partnered with Intelligent Energy to
bring their hydrogen fuel cell technology to this project.

BWR Innovations CEO, Joel Jorgenson states, “We are very pleased that the Industrial
Commission and Renewable Energy Council saw the potential of this proposal.” Jorgenson
continues, “The “SOL Source” energy project is a full-scale farm project that will use solar and
wind power to produce electricity and “green” hydrogen. The hydrogen will be used by a fuel
cell to produce electricity when solar and wind cannot produce enough needed electricity. This
is the first project of this size in North America, and we believe it will be a prototype for North
Dakota farm site energy production and a potential revenue source as electricity or hydrogen
sales. All of the energy produced is carbon free and has a $0 variable cost.”
“This builds and expands on the SOL Source project we have with Southern California Gas
(SoCalGas)”, added Jorgenson. “The opportunity to power North Dakota family farms and small
businesses is exciting.”

David Fields, Head of Product Line, IE-Lift™ at Intelligent Energy, said: “We have been working
alongside BWR for a number of years looking at providing hydrogen powered solutions across a
number of applications. Our IE-Lift fuel cell modules offer an output range of 1.2-4kW which can
be scaled to achieve a higher power. They are ideal for applications such as this project as they
are easy to integrate, offer low maintenance and can be configured to work in a hybridised
system with other renewable energy solutions.

We at Intelligent Energy are proud to be working with BWR and Grand Farm on a key project
such as the ‘SOL Source Energy Project’ which will provide a blueprint for hydrogen powered
energy solutions in the future. We hope this is the first of many such systems deployed in the
State of North Dakota and across the United States.”
