Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU)’s Fuel Cell Innovation Centre is offering SMEs a chance to find out how fuel cells work and what opportunities lie ahead at a special lab tour on 12 June.
The Manchester Fuel Cell Innovation Centre launched a partnering programme for SMEs in 2017 to encourage interest in cutting-edge hydrogen fuel cell technology.
By combining hydrogen with oxygen to produce electricity, fuel cells have the potential to provide emission-free power at point of use, with water being the only byproduct.
With the move to clean energy picking up pace and the recent announcement of plans to introduce hydrogen to the Greater Manchester and Liverpool gas network, commercial opportunities in hydrogen technologies are rising rapidly.
A free event on 12 June at the MMU facility will provide an introduction to fuel cell technology and what companies need to do to develop commercial products and services in this area.
The event will also include a tour of the centre’s £4 million laboratory.
