The EU has decided to approve the EVERYWH2ERE project to develop a ground breaking mobile fuel cell system for temporary power supply in urban environments. PowerCell Sweden AB (publ) is one of twelve companies and institutes participating in the project.
The English version is an in house-translation. In case of any discrepancy, the Swedish text will prevail.
The main purpose of the EVERYWH2ERE project is to develop fuel cell systems that are as easy to transport as they are to use.
"The systems are based on the PowerCell S2 and the PowerCell S3, and are developed for plug-and- play. It can be used at construction sites, music festivals and other events where there is a temporary need for electric power. Two advantages of fuel cells are that they are quiet and that they don't generate any emissions other than water", says Per Ekdunge, CTO at PowerCell.
The EU wants to benefit from the fuel cell expertise in different EU countries to develop cost-effective solutions that are technically and logistically feasible. In total, the project comprises a financial support amounting to EUR 6.8 million, of which PowerCell's share amounts to EUR 0.85 million.
"Together with active involvement from local authorities, this project constitutes a door opener for fuel cell technology in to new markets," concludes Per Ekdunge.
