AFC Energy, Ricardo to develop global applications for hydrogen power generation

Industrial fuel cell power company AFC Energy today (14th Jan) announced a new partnership with global engineering consultancy Ricardo, which will see the two companies develop new hydrogen power applications across marine, rail and stationary power generation in a bid to decarbonise the transport sector.

The collaboration will create opportunities for AFC Energy to grow the number of products that utilise the UK company’s fuel cell and validate its technical and commercial viability in the growing global market for hydrogen fuelled power and propulsion systems, AFC Energy said.

Both parties will consider the benefits achieved through the use of low cost, readily available and high energy dense green ammonia fuel (rather than hydrogen gas) as a fuel of choice in off-grid or remote power needs, including international shipping and distributed power generation.

Adam Bond, Chief Executive of AFC Energy, said, “The role for AFC Energy’s alkaline fuel cell in supporting the decarbonisation of e-mobility and off-grid power systems through the use of zero emission fuels such as green ammonia is becoming ever clearer and relevant.”
