Orion Innovations was Project Coordinator for a Consortium of seven European Partners who worked together to develop and demonstrate a market ready, portable power pack comprising an integrated modular fuel cell and hydrogen storage system that is flexible in design, cost effective and readily customised for application across multiple low power markets.
The three year project was granted funding of EUR 2.2 million from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking and was completed in September 2015. R&D activities focussed on the development of scalable PEM fuel cell modules and an innovative portable pack that allows the interchange of alternative hydrogen supply components. This included novel solid-state storage, based on innovative technology which improves the kinetics of hydrogen storage and incorporates new nano-structured materials with improved performance. Prototypes were subsequently be developed for field testing in specific end user applications.
In addition to project management, Orion Innovations was responsible for developing a commercialisation plan that addresses the barriers to market uptake and identifyied early routes to market.
