Intelligent Energy demonstrates 100kW hydrogen fuel cell architecture at JSAE Automotive Engineering Exposition

Energy technology group Intelligent Energy will showcase its 100kW automotive fuel cell architecture at the JSAE Automotive Engineering Exposition, Yokohama, Japan, on May 20-22. The technology provides vehicle manufacturers with a new high-performance solution for the next generation of FCEVs (fuel cell electric vehicles) by utilizing the company’s stack technology, designed to deliver primary power within an advanced electric driveline.

“Extensive research, engineering, cost reduction and test activities have been carried out by our motive division to help provide a solution for the automotive industry, which has been seeking a new, high-power fuel cell architecture,” said James Batchelor, Intelligent Energy’s motive managing director.

“We have over 25 years’ experience developing high power density, scalable fuel cell systems and have already forged collaborative commercial partnerships with major vehicle manufacturers; our 100kW architecture will provide impetus for the evolution of next generation FCEVs.”

Intelligent Energy’s 100kW architecture will be available to vehicle manufacturers through technology licensing programs and joint development agreements. The company’s stack technology offers power density of 3.5kW/l (volumetric) and 3kW/kg (gravimetric), while being engineered for low-cost, high-volume series production.

“Our proprietary, evaporatively-cooled (EC) technology is a crucial enabler for achieving new, high stack power densities,” Batchelor continued.

“Intelligent Energy’s EC design negates the requirement for individual cooling channels between cells. This reduces the mass and provides packaging and weight advantages when compared to conventional liquid-cooled fuel cell stacks.”

The Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan (JSAE) will already be familiar with Intelligent Energy’s innovations, following an existing collaboration with Suzuki. The partnership introduced the world’s first type-approved fuel cell powered scooter, which utilizes Intelligent Energy’s 4kW fuel cell systems. The two companies have also established a joint venture that manufactures stacks and fuel cell systems from a ready to scale production facility in Japan.
