S Series Fuel Cell Achieves Improved Efficiency and Operating Cost Reduction


Key Highlights:


  • Achieved 16% reduction in hydrogen fuel consumption[1] from the 2024 30kW H-Power Generator versus the 2023 H-Power Tower;


  • Significant lowering of 2024 H-Power Generator’s operating cost to customers, which builds on the 50% reduction in 2024 generator capital cost (per kW)[2] relative to the 2023 H-Power Tower;   


  • Performance measured during recent Speedy Hydrogen Solutions FAT and is compared to “in the field” data received from customers during H-Power Tower deployments in 2023;


  • Data demonstrates highly efficient performance of our S Series air cooled generator technology driven by its distinct integration of both proprietary fuel cell stack and generator balance of plant design.



Adam Bond, Chief Executive at AFC Energy, said: 


“Lowering the total cost of ownership of fuel cell generators is a key prerequisite to industry-wide adoption.  Last year, field data suggested that AFC Energy’s H-Power Towers were, operationally, only 14% more costly than diesel generators based on European hydrogen prices, highlighting the importance of fuel efficiency in generator performance and reducing this cost gap. AFC Energy’s high efficiency, high power dense S Series fuel cell generators are setting the standard for industry’s transition to a hydrogen fueled future”.
