Your own power plant

With your on CHi power plant, you cheaply generate electricity yourself, even when there’s no sun or wind. The fuel cell converts hydrogen from green gas into green electricity on the spot, saving you up to 40% on your energy bill.

Energy security

With CHi, you can produce electricity every second of the day and consume completely independent from the electricity network: you generate your own electricity from hydrogen using green gas. You monitor your own consumption and energy costs using your My CHi-electricity app. And using the CHi-SMARTGRid battery module you can store the electricity you’ve generated for later use.

Energy security

Saving

Your local power plant works more efficiently than large-scale, remote plants. What’s ore, because gas is much cheaper than electricity and the price is more stable, your own power is up to 40% cheaper than network electricity.

Saving

Sustainability

Thanks to a unique hydrogen technology, CHi generates 100% sustainable and completely low-carbon electricity from green gas: the only emission of the fuel cell is water vapour. The green gas (generated from sun, wind and biogas) can be stored in the existing gas network long-term. There, it’s available day and night, all throughout the year.

A fuel cell on hydrogen for energy security

Elugie and its partners generate energy from sunlight, wind force and biogas and store it into the existing gas network as green gas. This way, you’ll always have energy, even when there’s no sun or wind. The CHi fuel cell converts the green gas to hydrogen and, in reaction with oxygen, constantly generates electricity. The heat released during that process is recovered for floor heating, central heating or warm water.

Your own battery management system

With your power plant, you generate green power for your electrical car, your building and all its facilities. The power that remains is (just like with solar panels and wind energy) injected into the electricity network. Unless you also have the CHi-SMARTgrid.

This battery management system stores excess power in your own battery module, where it remains available to supplement later shortages of energy. This ensures you of a constant supply of power, even when the electricity network is down.

Cheap hydrogen energy for families, companies, schools and organisations.

Aside from being more sustainable, Chi is also cheaper than AC. It’s the most interesting energy solution to consumers of a medium size, with a use of at least 10,000 kWh per year: families, school, companies, government institutions, project developers, …

We want sustainable energy for our beer, de Kerel. The Chi power plants are cheap, sustainable and we can recuperate the residual heat in our brewing process.

Elugie believes in sustainability and a sustainable service is part of that. You can count on us for the calculations in advance, the installation, the settings, the annual maintenance and the service of your CHi power plant. We monitor the functioning of your device online for hassle-free functioning. As such, you’ll have complete control over your own green power for the next 20 years.

Installation

You only need a connection to the gas network, electricity, water and internet. Our professionals will do the rest, up to converting your existing electricity and heating installation.

Online monitoring

In your my CHi app, you closely follow the performance of your power plant. We immediately respond in case of a malfunction, so you’re ensured of your own constant green power.

Service with a profit guarantee

As a customer of Elugie, you can rest assured: every devices comes with a complete service warranty contract with performance guarantee – renewable up to twenty years. We annually maintain your fuel cell and replace it every four years, so your CHi will have optimal performance.

A sustainable investment that yields a return

If you pay the investment yourself, you’ll enjoy a return of 10 to even 15%. If you take a loan from the bank, it can easily be earned back by saving on your energy bill. Of you choose Elugie Finance as a company: a hire-purchase scheme of ten years maximum where you take out a loan directly at Elugie. This way, you immediately benefit from the low energy rates without having to cut costs or take out a loan and are still eligible for the increased deduction for investment.

CHi: your secure investment with maximum return.
