Symbio FCell, a pioneering company in fuel cell technology and inventors of the range extender for hybrid (combined electricity and hydrogen) vehicles, brought ENGIE on its board of investors in new round of fundraising.
The goal of the drive was to demonstrate how a zero-emission fuel cell electric vehicle can serve as a replacement for a gasoline vehicle.
Currently commercial PEMs in most fuel-cell-powered vehicles require water, so their operating temperature can’t get higher than water’s boiling point.
Pending permits, the New Haven fuel cell system will be installed, commissioned and operational by this Fall, bringing the IKEA fuel cell portfolio to more than 1.5 MW.
Fuel cell vehicles offer high energy efficiency, no tailpipe emissions, and full vehicle functionality, including the normal driving range, fast fueling and a potential path to sustainable transportation.
General Motors, the Office of Naval Research and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory are cooperating to incorporate automotive fuel cell systems into the next generation of Navy unmanned undersea vehicles, or UUVs.
