ClearEdge Power has created a distributed power source that will keep working in a blackout.
The company today announced a line of refrigerator-size fuel cells that include a backup battery to ensure ongoing power delivery in the case of an outage. ClearEdge Power is targeting them at businesses, such as hotels or stores, or companies that want a reliable power source for a data center.
