The business collaboration could include many areas that are associated with green hydrogen and fuel cells.
This involves hydrogen production, storage, compression, and dispenser suppliers to support the hydrogen infrastructure in the EU.
Hydrogen electrolysers (PEMEL, AEL, SOEC) and hydrogen refuelling station suppliers along with ammonia cracking and synthesis unit supplier in addition to methanol reformers.
Hybrid said it also intends on reaching out to providers that can support all fuel cell (PEMFC, AFC, SOFC, DMFC, PAFC, MCFC) type components as well as stack and system suppliers.
This could also include collaborations with hydrogen-powered drone suppliers to aid research as well as seeking associations with battery electric vehicle (BEVs) and fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEVs) component suppliers.
Dr. Naveed Akhtar, CEO of Hy-Hybrid Energy, said, “We are extending invitation to all stakeholders who are interested in working with us for cleaning our planet by implementing zero emission solutions. Let’s work together!”
The future collaborations are expected to contribute to Hy-Hybrid’s growing hydrogen portfolio taking place across the EU.
In March 2019, Hy-Hybrid Energy had been invited to support a German OEM’s project for the technology development in solid oxide fuel cells.
Further in the year in August 2019, Hy-Hybrid Energy entered into a joint agreement with GOLDI Mobility – a Hungarian-based manufacturing company for the development and assembly of fuel cell electric drivetrain for their next generation buses.
In late 2020, Dr. Akhtar had been invited to support a study related to the use of solid oxide fuel cells for an aviation project.
The study included the use of gas turbine, battery and fuel cells as a hybrid drivetrain and selects the most appropriate energy source during climb, cruise and descend phases of the flight while optimising the overall efficiency of the drivetrain.
