Fuel Cells Power Cameras for Daytona 500
Four hydrogen fuel cell generators will power broadcast cameras around the track at this weekend’s FOX broadcast of the Daytona 500. The technology was beta-tested during the IMSA Rolex 24 race last month with two cameras.
The fuel cells produce electrical power and operate on conventional fuels like natural gas and propane, while reducing fuel usage, greenhouse gas emissions, noise, and vibration compared to traditional diesel generators.
According to NASCAR, no other sports broadcast has ever used these energy efficient solid oxide fuel cell generators to power cameras as part of broadcasting a live sports event.
NASCAR joined the Department of Energy’s Workplace Charging Challenge earlier this month, and as part of the challenge, NASCAR has deployed Eaton EV charging stations for NASCAR, ISC and IMSA employee use at its corporate office locations in Daytona Beach, Fla., Charlotte, NC and Concord, NC.
