Innovative Fuel Cell Technology for Clean Energy
Hydrogen power would be a strong and clean power source but it’s been too expensive, too complex and too unreliable to be widely used in the market. At EH Group we developed a technology that harnesses the power of hydrogen in a compact, reliable way at low cost and minimal initial investment. Thanks to our solution, major manufacturers in the automotive, aviation and maritime industries get way ahead of their competitors in innovating towards a greener future – the only future we have.
As the global economy moves towards a decarbonised future, hydrogen will become a key energy vector, across both stationary and mobile applications.
However, hydrogen fuel cells remain too bulky, too complex and too expensive. Fuel cells are devices that electrochemically combine hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity, water, and heat – there are no other emissions, and they are 2-3 times more efficient than combustion technologies.
EH Group Engineering offers a uniquely simplified and redesigned fuel cell stack at the micro level, making it significantly more compact, lightweight and efficient. The startup uses a completely new concept of fuel cell stack production with high micro precision assembly, integrating proprietary machinery that will deliver a 30kW stack in under a minute that reduces the cost tenfold compared to current technologies. Furthermore, the startup’s fuel cell technology can operate with minimal effects of gravity and in any orientation, which makes it very interesting for automotive, space and aviation sectors.
The fuel cell market has been expanding exponentially in both the stationary and automotive industries (buses, trucks, etc.). It is forecast to grow by over 20-40% Compound Annual Growth Rate from 2016 to 2025, from 2 billion USD to over 25 billion USD over that period. The Swiss market is growing rapidly due to favourable regulatory policies.
It’s the startup’s declared goal to unlock hydrogen fuel cells’ true potential across a wide range of deployment scenarios, most notably the heavy transport industry, to contribute to a decarbonised future.
