Hydrogen and fuel cells are well suited to a range of mobility and vehicle challenges. A fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) is very similar to an electric vehicle, except with the greater volumetric energy density than a batteries, hydrogen offers much greater range more than 300-400 miles in the leading cars, such as those just entering the market from Hyundai and Toyota.
This increased range for weight and volume advantage means that a good use of hydrogen and fuel cell systems is to extend the range of any electric vehicle, or mobile device, effectively acting as a mobile battery charger. This is a good example of fuel cells working with other technologies in hybrid systems.
Our Automotive systems offer users an all-in-one power solution including hydrogen supply, fuel cell, control systems and power electronics. These systems can be configured as 'single stack' providing 3-5 kW or 'dual stack' providing 6 kW.
Our experience in system integration with automotive power trains has been built with lightweight vehicle developers Riversimple and Microcab in the UK and a number of international customers. The knowledge gained means the team can be a valuable partner in the development of integrated fuel cell power trains for a wide range of mobility applications.
