Industry-leading power density claimed for new fuel cell system
Available to OEMs through licensing programmes and joint development agreements, it uses an evaporative cooling technology, which means it doesn’t require individual cooling channels between each cell, as in a liquid-cooled system, which helps reduce the overall size. In turn, this can allow it to be used in a wider variety of vehicles.
Intelligent Energy is claiming industry-leading power density for the system.
James Batchelor, managing director of Intelligent Energy’s Motive division, said: “Our 100kW platform provides automotive OEMs with a fast-track route to our next generation evaporatively-cooled stack technology, integrated into a compact system architecture.
“The concept, design, technology elements and IP package are all in place to enable the platform to be applied to customer vehicle programmes today.”
