hy-fcell presents €30,000 to three award winners

German Aerospace Center, Robert Bosch and ionysis won €10,000 each after winning the R&D, Products and Markets and Start-up categories respectively in the hy-fcell awards at this year’s show.

The Aerospace Center’s ‘H2-Expansion Machine’ project from the Institute of Vehicle Concepts saw scientists develop a machine generator system which converts the excess energy in fuel cell vehicles with hydrogen pressure tanks into electrical energy.

By recovering energy in this way, it is possible to increase the range of the vehicles by up to 5%. This method represents an entirely new approach to improving efficiency and could be an option for approximately 400,000 fuel cell vehicles around the world by the year 2035. There is also further market potential in the hydrogen- and natural gas-based, mobile and stationary applications with combustion engines.
