- Bavarian State Minister Dr. Florian Herrmann and Member of the German Parliament Florian Hahn visit SFC Energy
Brunnthal/Munich, Germany – SFC Energy AG (F3C:DE, ISIN: DE0007568578), a leading supplier of hydrogen and methanol fuel cells for stationary and mobile hybrid power solutions, today announced the next generation of its hydrogen fuel cell solution.
The EFOY Hydrogen Fuel Cell 2.5 power solution combines a reliable, powerful and environmentally friendly form of power generation with the highest possible connectivity and ease of use. As part of the launch, Minister of State Dr. Florian Herrmann (Head of the State Chancellery, Minister of State for Federal Affairs and Media, MdL) and Florian Hahn, Member of the German Parliament, visit SFC Energy’s production and headquarter.
With the EFOY Hydrogen Fuel Cell 2.5, SFC Energy delivers a modular hydrogen fuel cell solution that meets the highest demands of professional users. The company has consistently aligned its development with its customers needs. As an emission-free replacement for diesel generators, the EFOY Hydrogen Fuel Cell 2.5 offers an innovative solution to a wide range of user industries that can be easily adapted to any application.
Thanks to a wide power range from 2.5 to 50 kilowatts (kW), SFC Energy addresses a large and steadily growing number of customers. No matter whether it is for mobile communications infrastructure, smart traffic applications or emergency power supply for critical infrastructures: the EFOY Hydrogen Fuel Cell 2.5 delivers reliable, powerful and uninterrupted climate-neutral energy. Compared to a conventional diesel generator, for example, a 5 kW hydrogen fuel cell energy solution saves up to 45.6 tons of CO2 based on an assumed annual demand of 43,800 kilowatt hours (kWh). This corresponds to the driving perfomance of a diesel-powered car of about 250,000 kilometers.
The new control and remote maintenance options of the EFOY Hydrogen solution are particularly impressive. Thanks to the EFOY Cloud, users can quickly and easily gain an overview of the individual locations of their power units. Users can access via laptop, tablet or smartphone – all essential parameters are immediately in view. Reliable remote access reduces maintenance calls to an absolute minimum. Thanks to the customized H2 energy solutions such as the EFOY Hydrogen Cabinet, the energy solution can be used both indoors and outdoors without any problems. The series production of the new EFOY Hydrogen energy solution is scheduled to start in the fourth quarter of 2021.
The entire SFC Energy team is very pleased about the visit of the State Minister Dr. Florian Herrmann and of the Member of the German Parliament Florian Hahn, who will get a deeper insight into the production and the development center for hydrogen and methanol fuel cells.
“Hydrogen and fuel cells are core technologies for achieving our climate targets. We offer highly efficient and climate-friendly energy solutions from a single source to our customers – as a replacement for conventional generators. The new EFOY Hydrogen Fuel Cell 2.5 massively expands our performance spectrum upwards. Many years of deep know-how in engineering have gone into this future technology Made in Germany. We are honored and delighted by the sustained interest shown by political representatives. The Bavarian and National Hydrogen strategies set the right incentives and provide essential support. Moreover, we can continue to create highly qualified jobs in all areas of the company. With the common goal of a low-carbon society and long-term climate neutrality firmly in mind, we want to and will make our contribution as one of the global pioneers of this technology,” says Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG.
“With the Bavarian Hydrogen Strategy, the state government has already laid the foundation for the development of Bavaria as the world’s leading hydrogen location in September 2019. In line with the National Hydrogen Strategy, Bavaria can make a decisive contribution to Germany as a future global hydrogen technology leader. SFC Energy is the prime example of a classic hidden champion, a medium-sized technology company that is already implementing this social and political goal today. We as the state government are proud of such groundbreaking innovation “made in Bavaria” and SFC Energy’s contribution to a low-emission society on the way to climate neutrality,” says Dr. Florian Herrmann, Head of the State Chancellery.
“At SFC Energy, we are already experiencing the successful implementation of the Bavarian and National Hydrogen strategies in a concrete application: the emission-free emergency power supply for official digital radio. Entrepreneurial pioneering spirit meets targeted funding programs, as in this case by the German Federal Ministry of Transport. The result is internationally competitive products and hundreds of skilled jobs. This fills me with joy and pride. The development confirms my conviction that Germany and the Munich district, as HyLand hydrogen regions, are on the right path to sustainable energy transition with a focus on decarbonization,” says Florian Hahn, Member of the German Parliament.
