Loughborough, UK— Intelligent Energy, the manufacturer of the world’s lightest and most power dense UAV fuel cells, will be visiting AUVSI Xponential this week to showcase its market leading, lightweight and compact fuel cell products for UAVs.
AUVSI Xponential will run from 16-19 August at the Georgia Convention Centre in Atlanta.
Intelligent Energy will be visiting the show and is looking forward to catching up with existing customers like Harris Aerial (Booth 3233) and Zepher Inc (Booth 2813), as well as making new contacts and hearing the latest developments from the industry.
Intelligent Energy will have a dedicated meeting room on the show floor (meeting room number 5) where prospective customers can visit to learn more about how fuel cells work for UAVs and the benefits they offer.
Our UK team of experts will be on hand via video in the meeting room to speak to visitors to learn about their requirements and our US representative will be present to welcome visitors and introduce them to our IE-Soar products.
Intelligent Energy is focused on the development and manufacture of its Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell products for customers in the automotive, aerospace, generator, telecoms, materials handling and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) sectors. The company is headquartered and manufactures in Loughborough in the UK, with additional offices and representation in the US, Japan, China and South Korea.

About fuel cells
Fuel cell technology is similar to battery technology in that individual cells are built up to give the desired power output. However, fuel cells do not run out of charge as batteries do and will produce power for as long as hydrogen fuel and air are provided to the cell. Hydrogen is readily available around the world, often generated using green energy.
Fuel cells are deployed in multiple applications where clean, lightweight, efficient and cost-effective power is required. Fast re-fuelling and lack of emissions makes fuel cell technology an excellent choice for forklift trucks and warehousing. Fuel cells are commonplace in clean construction and backup power for critical telecoms. Powering UAVs with fuel cells allows three times the flying time which gives significant advantages in applications such as aerial surveying and filming.
Zero emission hydrogen fuel cell technology will be preferred to battery technology in vehicles where rapid re-fuelling, high power and long range are important. Typical fuel cell applications include SUVs, buses and trucks, along with smaller cars where a high availability is critical, e.g. taxis and shared vehicles. Over 13,000 fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) are on the road today.
