Hydrogen: EH Group Engineering AG gets a EU grant to boost its innovative fuel cell technology

LAUSANNE, Switzerland, 3-Mar-2020 — /EPR ENERGY NEWS/ — EH Group Engineering AG is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a grant from the European Commission as part of the highly competitive Horizon 2020 Accelerator program to boost the development of our innovative fuel cell technology. The project, which is planned for a duration of two years has an overall budget of EUR 2.1M and is focused on bringing our fuel cell technology to mass commercialisation.

EH Group’s core fuel cell technology is based on:

  • A uniquely simplified and re-designed FC stack at the micro level, making it significantly more compact, lightweight and efficient. It also simplifies overall FC system architecture making it more efficient and substantially cheaper. Our first-generation product already delivers market-leading power density.
  • A completely new concept of fuel cell stack design and assembly with high micro precision, integrating proprietary machinery that enables a sharp reduction of production
    costs at scale.
  • Our FC technology can operate with minimal effects of gravity and in any orientation, making it a great candidate in the automotive, space and aviation sectors as a power generator.

In the words of Mardit Matian, founder of EH Group, “One of the major historical and current challenges of commercialising fuel cell technology has been cost. We believe EH Group will significantly influence the market by achieving significant cost reductions and hence more rapid industrialisation of hydrogen-based technology. Our product offering can be used in stationary applications such as commercial buildings, data centres, etc. Furthermore, due to its compactness, our technology will be a front-running candidate for mobile applications (buses, trucks, forklifts, trains, ferries, etc.) where weight and volume reduction are two key criteria.”

EH Group Engineering AG, based near Lausanne, Switzerland was founded in 2017. It is focused on the design, development and production of an innovative fuel cell technology. In addition, EH Group provides engineering services relating to hydrogen mobility and stationary projects, as well as innovative technology for the production of hydrogen.

Welcome to EPR Energy News

EPR Energy News is a new blog, part of EPR Network, that is going to be focused on and will be covering the energy news and stories from press releases published on EPR Network.

EPR Network (EPR stands for express press release) is one of the nation’s largest press release distribution networks on Web. The EPR’s nationwide network includes 12 State based PR sites, one major PR forum and a number of industry specific PR blogs and what started as a hobby on Internet years ago turned out to be a rapidly growing business today. EPR Network is also known as one of the most trusted (human optimized, published, edited and monitored, spam/scam/low quality PR content free) PR sites on the web with more than 10,000 company and individual press releases distributed per month. EPR Network is putting your press releases on top of all major search engines’ results and is reaching thousands of individuals, companies, PR specialists, media professionals, bloggers and journalists every day.

EPR Network has thousands of clients around the world including global 500 corporations like Hilton Hotels, Barclays Bank, AXA Insurance, Tesco UK, eBay/Skype, Emirates, just to name a few. The network’s PR web sites are currently reaching from 150,000 to sometimes 500,000 unique visitors per month while our viral reach could possibly go to as much as 1M people per month through our presence across various social media sites. EPR Network was established in 2004 and as of May 2008 it had more than 800,000 press releases (pages) published on its network.
