Fuel cell technology has been used to provide a reliable source of off-grid power for remote camera units that recorded wildlife footage in Scotland for a recent BBC natural history TV series.

Capturing elusive wildlife footage can be fraught with challenges. It often involves a considerable amount of waiting around, after setting up and positioning remote recording equipment. A wildlife film crew needs patience and persistence to produce captivating footage of the natural world that will engage and inspire TV audiences.

During the production of the BBC Winterwatch programme, which was broadcast in January 2014, the BBC’s Natural History Unit opted for an alternative power supply that would ensure minimal disturbance to both wildlife and the environment while filming two spectacular wildlife events in the Mar Lodge Estate in Braemar, Scotland.
