When Power Matters

Solid oxide fuel cells uniquely designed to offer reliable power — even in the harshest of conditions. Our propane and natural gas backup and portable power solutions are proven in military, transportation and telecommunications applications, and they are ideal for unmanned aerial or ground vehicles.


The ideal backup power for critical applications and extreme conditions, P250i integrates with grid, generator, wind or solar technologies to switch on and off as needed. It needs no oil changes, has no major moving parts and requires no maintenance, offering years of reliable backup.

This backpack-sized 350 Watt Solid Oxide Fuel Cell generator runs on propane, making D350 a natural replacement for remote batteries and chargers, especially in advanced Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance or expeditionary military applications.

Specifically developed as a lightweight and rugged power system, D350XR is preferred by the world’s largest military contractors and is the only fuel cell in its class running on propane. D350XR keeps drones flying longer and unmanned ground vehicles roaming farther.



Adaptive Energy is the world's leading designer and manufacturer of solid oxide fuel cells for backup and portable power applications. Located in Ann Arbor, Michigan and originating from technology commercialized out of the University of Michigan, the company was founded in 1999 and is dedicated to developing solutions that keep you powered when you need it the most, even in the harshest conditions.
