Hydrogen Experts Collaborate with German Giant

Energy storage and clean fuel company ITM Power has signed a deal with AEG Power Solutions to integrate the two companies’ technologies.

Sheffield-based ITM has developed electrolyser technology which, in its simplest terms, produces hydrogen by passing a current through water.

Meanwhile, AEG PS has extensive experience of using power electronics in renewable energy plants to change the voltage, current or frequency of electric power.

Power electronics is essential for the development of smart grids and demand-side management of loads, allowing the use of intermittent and fluctuating renewable energy sources.

ITM Power has received confirmation that it is to receive more than £700,000 as part of a £2.9 million European Union programme to develop an advanced refuelling system for fuel cell electric vehicles.

ITM is applying for seven new patents. The company currently has 94 separately granted patents and 64 pending patent applications across 31 patent families.
