Horiba Fuelcon : The Catalyst Of Zero-Emission Future

Top 10 Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Technology Solution Companies in Europe - 2021

While hydrogen economy is not a new buzzword in the global industries, the worldwide push towards decarbonisation, along with developments in existing technologies, have bolstered the concept of hydrogen economy much deeper in the public consciousness. The scalability and affordability of renewable energy systems, as well as advancements in electrolysers, now allow for sustainable hydrogen production, also called green hydrogen.

Among different hydrogen-based power sources, fuel cells have the biggest impact, aiding in zero-emissions heavy-duty vehicles, which currently contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. It should be noted that the hydrogen fuel cell vehicle (H2FCV) and H2FCV-hybrid electric vehicle offers the least environmental damage among all the advanced options. When fuelled with hydrogen derived from natural gas, pollution damage costs is 1/8 as large as for today’s gasoline internal combustion engine vehicles without CO2 sequestration and 1/15 as large with CO2 sequestration.

In face of such tremendous advancements, we have compiled this issue of Energy Tech Review Europe to help you in the task of finding the best hydrogen and fuel cells technology solution providers. It is elaborately crafted to assist you in fostering productive partnerships and improving performance. In this edition, we have listed the most promising hydrogen and fuel cells technology solution providers. This edition also blends thought leadership articles from subject matter experts, CIOs, and CXOs. We hope this issue of Energy Tech Review Europe helps you build the partnership you and your organisation need to foster an environment driven by robust and efficient technology.

We present to you Energy Tech Review Europe’s, “Top 10 Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Technology Solution Companies – 2021.”

    Top Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Technology Solution Companies in Europe

  • AFC Energy is an innovator in hydrogen technology offering robust and cost-effective H-Power solutions. Backed by the world leader in electro-chemistry—Industrie De Nora S.p.A—the company is changing the way hydrogen-based energy is perceived in the world today. In fact, the AFC Energy’s patented alkaline fuel cells can function on low grade hydrogen streams (even as low as 75 percent hydrogen), while allowing the displacement of precious metals during electrolysis. Impressively, the company achieves this without a drop in performance or efficiency


  • While the approach toward shifting from internal combustion engines to fuel cells has only gained significance in the last decade, the forward-thinking leaders at the helm of Spain-based Ajusa foresaw the end of fossil fuel-based power almost two decades ago. As a leader in the production of combustion engines and their components, Ajusa gradually started investing in fuel cell R&D to develop a portfolio that could become their saving grace in a future where internal combustion engines become obsolete. A key facet that perfectly poises the company to manufacture effective and robust fuel cells is its patented sealing technique. This sealing process was originally acquired to seal gaskets, but today has become a critical step in developing hydrogen fuel cells with zero leakage


  • Ballard is a world leader in developing, manufacturing, selling, and servicing hydrogen fuel cell power systems


  • HORIBA FuelCon is the leading provider of test stands for fuel cells, batteries, and electrolysers. With the HORIBA FuelCon test stands from the Evaluator series, fuel cells, batteries, and electrolysers can be evaluated, validated, and optimised. These test stands enable the comparison, evaluation, and optimisation of battery modules, packs, and drive train components, including power electronics. These processes can be carried out manually, partially, or fully automatically. To this extent, HORIBA FuelCon HT test stands are tried and tested solutions that are used for the specific requirements of SOFC fuel cells: long-term studies, performance tests, and material characterisation of individual cells, components, cell stacks, hotboxes, or complete systems


  • IMERYS Graphite & Carbon is the world leader in high-tech, high-performance solutions based on specialised graphite and carbons. The company has a strong tradition and history in carbon manufacturing, with its first manufacturing operation founded way back in 1908. Today, IMERYS Graphite & Carbon produces and markets a large variety of synthetic and natural graphite powders, conductive carbon blacks, as well as silicon-carbon composites and water-based dispersions of consistently high quality. Adhering to a philosophy of Total Quality Management and continuous process improvement, all of its manufacturing plants comply with ISO 9001-2008


  • SFC is a globally leading company specialising in hydrogen and direct methanol fuel cells for stationary and mobile hybrid power solutions. As a technology leader in the field of direct methanol fuel cells, SFC is synonymous with eco-friendly power generation and attaches great importance to the resource-sparing manufacture of its products, as well as responsible recycling. Through its clean energy and clean power management business segments, the company distributes its award-winning products worldwide and has sold more than 50,000 fuel cells to date
