HyPoint builds a Hydrogen Fuel Cell System

A proton exchange membrane cell generally uses hydrogen and oxygen gas as fuel. The products of the reaction are water, electricity, and heat. Since oxygen is readily available in the atmosphere, companies look to provide and manage the supply of hydrogen. In comparison to conventional power generation technology, such hydrogen-based solutions offer significant improvements and also produce low levels of, and sometimes zero, harmful by-products. Emerging companies develop innovative electrolysis technologies that improve the feasibility of generating hydrogen-based fuel and energy.

HyPoint is a US-based startup developing a hydrogen fuel cell system with zero carbon dioxide emissions and more efficient energy performance for the air transportation and urban air mobility sectors. HyPoint’s patented Turbo Air-Cooled Fuel Cell Systems offer a lightweight and simpler design than that of liquid-cooled systems, which allows them to achieve specific power and energy density. This solution also increases operational time and utilization rate while decreasing operating costs for any flying platform.

Enapter creates an Anion Exchange Membrane (AEM) Electrolyser

Electrolysis is commonly in use for numerous metal manufacturing and water filtration applications. This is also a suitable technique for splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen, enabling the creation of hydrogen energy systems. Such electrolyzers range in size from small, appliance-size equipment to large-scale, central production facilities. Emerging companies develop novel electrolysis technologies to improve the feasibility of generating hydrogen-based fuel and energy.

Enapter is a German startup building a patented, modular hydrogen generator that is ready to use across various industrial and mobility applications. Clients have to simply fill EL 2.1, an AEM electrolyzer, and connect the water and electricity, to start producing hydrogen on-site. Additionally, the startup provides an energy management system to predict energy generation, storage, and transmission.

PowerUp Energy Technologies offers Hydrogen Fuel Cell-based Electric Generators

Historically, several technologies have been used, and are still in use, to power electric generators including steam, gas, water, and wind turbines. Many of these systems require bulky and complex infrastructure, aside from being noisy and, in some cases, giving off odors. Advancements in understanding hydrogen as a potential source of generating fuel leads startups to develop efficient systems that do not use intermittent or non-renewable sources of energy.

The US-based startup PowerUp Energy Technologies produces a portable fuel cell-based smart generator, SMARTGEN, to produce power onboard sailboats, yachts, recreational vehicles (RVs), and eventually, for power backup. SMARTGEN combines several technologies into one portable box, including fuel cells, lithium-ion batteries, and supercapacitors. Their fuel cells allow customers to produce electricity directly from hydrogen. Additionally, the company’s batteries and supercapacitors provide an option to store power generated by solar panels and wind turbines.

HyTech Power provides Hydrogen-based Internal Combustion Assistance

Vehicles, and more specifically diesel-guzzling long-haul trucks, potentially benefit the most in terms of cost-savings from using hydrogen-based fuel. In combination with electric vehicles (EVs), hydrogen fuels produce near-zero emissions. However, when complemented with the internal combustion engine and other industrial motors, it releases nitrogen oxides in varying amounts – a big challenge that startups are already addressing.

HyTech Power is a US-based startup that offers hydrogen energy solutions for internal combustion engine-based vehicles. The startup’s proprietary internal combustion assistance (ICA) technology provides significant fuel savings in diesel engines. This on-demand hydrogen generation and injection retrofit system are designed for multiple off-road and on-road diesel engine applications. Besides, its aerospace-grade engineered systems improve fuel efficiency too.

HYON develops Bespoke Hydrogen Fuel Ecosystem Solutions

From producing hydrogen to storing and distributing it, there are multiple opportunities for companies to contribute towards the development of the hydrogen fuel ecosystem. Various industries require hydrogen in different forms depending on their purposes. Startups and big companies alike increasingly see the benefit of providing a single point of access to various aspects of the hydrogen fuel ecosystem.

HYON is a joint venture company formed by three hydrogen energy solutions providers. Nel hydrogen solutions cover the entire value chain including hydrogen production technologies and manufacturing of hydrogen fueling stations. PowerCell Sweden produces fuel cell stacks and systems with improved energy density for stationary and mobile applications. Hexagon Composites is a supplier of composite pressure cylinders and systems for gas applications. HYON offers hydrogen production, fuel cells, storage, and transportation for the automotive, maritime, off-grid energy, and power-to-gas industries.
