Ceramic Fuel Cells Receives Order from German Government

July 28, 2011

The German government has formally approved funding for an order of up to 200 of Ceramic Fuel Cells Ltd.’s integrated power and heat generators from German energy service provider EWE. The order is the largest that Ceramic Fuel Cells has received, with total revenue of up to €4.9 million (~ $7 million) over two years. Part of the funding for the order is being provided by the German government’s national hydrogen and fuel cell technology innovation program.

Ceramic Fuel Cells is supplying the core Gennex fuel cell module and related components to its local manufacturing partner, Gebrüder Bruns Heiztechnik GmbH, which is integrating the fuel cell module with a boiler into an integrated power and heating product for supply to EWE. EWE will then install the units in homes in the Lower Saxony region of northern Germany.
