The deployment of fuel cells and hydrogen technologies is a systems engineering challenge involving the design and management of complex systems. Fuel cells are often best applied in hybrid energy systems and integrated with other technologies. Hydrogen is an energy vector with many uses that can connect the energy and transport systems, the electricity grid and the gas grid.
Arcola Energy is applying system engineering approaches to establishing these technologies as well as to the technical challenges. We work to automotive system engineering standards in our hybrid power-train development across our multi-disciplinary team. We are working with partners and suppliers to design and develop complete systems for both energy and transport applications.
Arcola Energy, leading integrator of fuel cell systems, has been awarded UK Government funding in partnership with Origen Power, to develop a prototype of a system that can both generate electricity and remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The grant worth £1million is from the Energy Entrepreneurs Fund run by BEIS and reflects growing acknowledgement of the need for what are known as Greenhouse Gas Removal (GGR) technologies.
Orkney is pioneering the use of hydrogen to address the challenges of surplus renewable energy and the need for low carbon transport, power and heat
Hydrogen has a role to play in complete clean energy systems alongside renewable energy to support the transition to future low carbon, zero emission, safe and sustainable energy systems
Arcola Energy also integrates technologies and businesses into projects and programmes, acting as the focal point to deliver whole-system solutions and create new markets for fuel cell and hydrogen products.
Arcola Energy is a specialist engineering services business with an experienced team who work closely with our clients on system integration, product development, installation and support of innovative hydrogen, fuel cell and hybrid vehicle and energy systems
