In order to be able to provide electricity for continuous supply and high loads in use and applications, AXSOL GmbH and SFC Energy AG combine battery and fuel cell technology.

Wide-area, secure energy supply is one of the key tasks for the progressive development of mankind in the 21st century. In view of the globalisation and digitalisation of the economy, it determines the growth and success of industrialised and emerging countries. The resilience of the energy supply is also playing an increasingly important role in small applications and operations.

Thus, a crisis-proof and thus self-sufficient energy supply is also becoming increasingly important for authorities, for example, in order to be able to react appropriately to increasingly complex operational situations and factors such as networking, use of alternative/regenerative energies, reduction of the logistical supply effort and reduction of dependency (self-sufficiency).

In order to be able to fulfil these objectives in the near future, AXSOL GmbH and SFC Energy AG have decided to go down joint paths and to open up new potentials for the integration and expansion of mobile and (partially) stationary battery storage systems through fuel cells.

SFC Energy is a leading supplier of direct methanol and hydrogen fuel cells for stationary and mobile hybrid power solutions. AXSOL designs, develops and manufactures partially and fully autonomous energy storage systems for mobile as well as stationary use – from generation and storage to efficient consumption.

The focus of the relationship is on combining the advantages of both technologies to provide customers and users with a new set of functionalities. For example, hybridisation of the fuel cells can extend the battery life, increase the peak load that can be called up (compared to stand-alone fuel cells) if required, and increase the independence of the power supply in use or in the application. In the further development of the application possibilities, both parties combine their extensive knowledge and years of experience in their specific market areas to provide customers with a sustainable, secure and demand-oriented energy supply in the long term.
