In its full year results AFC Energy plc (LON:AFC) chief executive Adam Bond told investors that the fuel cell company completed its three-year plan as promised.

“The funding put in place early in 2017 allowed us to enhance the 10kW fuel cell system design to support scaling-up of this modular design basis, complete technical milestones to deliver the longevity and reliability required for power plant application and develop the strategic partnerships to underpin the future commercial manufacturing and supply of fuel cells,” Bond said.

“With these targets met, AFC Energy is transitioning to commercial exploitation of the significant value in intellectual property that it has created; thereby becoming a key new entrant into the ever-growing clean energy revolution."
