About AFC Energy


AFC Energy plc has developed and successfully operated an alkaline fuel cell system, which converts hydrogen into "clean" electricity. AFC Energy's first project, POWER-UP, demonstrated the world's largest operational alkaline fuel cell system at Air Products' industrial gas plant in Stade, Germany in January 2016.  The Company is now looking to build upon an already established pipeline of commercial opportunities and drive the findings from the development phase of the technology into a technically optimised and commercially relevant fuel cell system.  For further information, please visit our website:
