(All figures in millions, except percentages)
Sales of fuel cell systems and their affiliated infrastructure
A major part of revenues earned by the company comes from this category which primarily comprises sales of the company’s fuel cells namely, GenDrive units and GenSure stationary backup power units, as well as hydrogen fuelling infrastructure. Revenue from sales of fuel cell systems and related infrastructure grew by 38.86%, amounting to $83.53 million in Q3 2020 to $115.99 million in Q3 2021, on a year-on-year basis. The main cause for the upsurge in revenue was the increase of GenDrive units recognized as revenue, marked by 9533 units in 2021 from 7217 units in 2020, and an increase in hydrogen installations associated with 16 hydrogen sites in Q3 2021 compared to 18 during Q3 2020.
Fuel delivered to customers
Revenue from this category comes from the sale of hydrogen to customers. The company mostly purchases fuel from third parties and occasionally generates it on-site. Revenue from fuel delivered to customers raised from $9.83 million in Q3 2020 to $11.56 million in Q3 2021, marking a 17.6% increase on a year-on-year basis. The upsurge was noticed due to an increase in the number of sites with fuel contracts, from 94 sites in Q3 2020 to 141 in Q3 2021. The increase of site was not proportionate to the increase in revenue because a number of newly established sites had not received fuel in Q3 2021.
Power Purchase Agreements(“PPA”)
This category includes revenue earned from the payments received from customers for generating power through the company’s GenKey solutions. Revenue from PPAs increased from $6.70 million in Q3 2020 to $9.32 million in Q3 2021, marking an increase of 39% on a year-on-year basis. There were almost 61 GenKey sites associated with PPAs in Q3 2021, as compared to 36 in Q3 2020. The growth in revenue was primarily due to new customers accessing the PPA subscription solution and from existing customers who operated through newly established sites.
Services performed on fuel cell systems and their affiliated infrastructure
This category includes revenue earned from service and maintenance contracts and sales of spare parts. Revenue from Services performed on fuel cell systems and related infrastructure decreased by 2.2%, to $6.68 million in Q3 2021 as compared to $6.83 million in Q3 2020. The main cause for the decrease in revenue was the decline in billings for run-time hours that exceeded certain levels because of changes in the overall contract. There were 78 hydrogen installations under extended maintenance contracts and 18,685 fuel cell units in Q3 2021, which comparably increased from 56 hydrogen installations and 13,421 fuel cell units in Q3 2020. Although the number of installation and cell units increased compared to the previous year, many of the units and sites installed late during the quarter hence notable impact will likely commence in Q4 2021.
