Bramble Energy are excited to announce that we have teamed up with integration partner, MAHLE Powertrain for the development of our first demonstrator automotive vehicle which will be premiered later this year.
MAHLE Powertrain brings their expert knowledge of new technologies and optimized powertrain solutions to this project, which will see the integration of Bramble Energy’s novel PCBFC™ Hydrogen Fuel Cell into a Renault Kangoo ZE.
“We are delighted to be involved in this exciting new project with Bramble Energy. The use of fuel cells in light commercial EVs makes a lot of sense where access to hydrogen refuelling is readily available. The latest PCB fuel cell technology developed by Bramble provides a higher power density which is well suited to typical delivery vehicle duty cycles. MAHLE Powertrain has supported this project with our expertise in EV control system and cooling systems development combined with our experience in vehicle systems integration.”
Jonathan Hall, Head of Research & Advanced Engineering Projects, MAHLE Powertrain
Bramble Energy’s unique PCB Fuel Cell technology has already been demonstrated for air cooled applications through our SD product range which will be launching shortly in collaboration with BOC (A member of The Linde Group). This project will demonstrate Bramble Energy’s latest technology development of high-power density liquid cooled fuel cells.
“Bramble Energy are thrilled to be working with MAHLE Powertrain to deliver our PCB fuel cell powered demonstrator vehicle. This is one of Bramble Energy’s most significant milestones to date and we couldn’t have a better partner than MAHLE Powertrain to help execute it.”
