Mini fuel cell from Alreda

The ideas for affordable fuel cells are long in the drawer. For a small company from Switzerland that is primarily for the military operates. And in Geneva is in Hall 3.

Cheap plastic pots, a pathetic fountain, a red trash can on a green carpet. That’s what the Green Pavilion of Geneva. That’s what the Green Pavilion of Geneva. Where’s flawless prototype park should, just for a handful of small-town M├Ârchen, which look more like lawn mowers than CityCruiser. Where’s flawless prototype park should, just for a handful of small-town M├Ârchen, which look more like lawn MOWERS than CityCruiser. Actually, one would immediately go to the Greens, cucumbers, were it not for a small, inconspicuous fair sensation: the world premiere in the trunk.

Mini fuel cell from Alreda

Alreda it – insure the Swiss – the first time managed to the outrageously expensive platinum, which is used for fuel cells, in a very thin layer of single atoms on the fuel cell wall to steam. This may fuel the future, according inches Alreda be offered as cheaply as a power generator for camping. For comparison, a conventional fuel cell costs 3000 Euro/kW, a power unit of Honda 500 Euro/kW, the super cell of Alreda just 400 to 600 euros/kW. And something is uncharitable in the trunk of a white truck of electric Piaggo. It is the small two to three kilowatts large cell as Range Extender (range extension) for the electric motor and not as a pure fuel cell propulsion. Even a super idea of the Opel, Karma & Co, a disc can be cut off. The prototype of the fuel cell, just as big as a plate Ritter Sport chocolate, prefers the state employees from a desk drawer out. As we would have guessed it: The ideas for affordable fuel cells are long in the drawer.

They also have a battery buffer storing 1.8 kWh of energy regenerative braking system. And they have a system with 3 storage tanks at high pressure of 700 bars made of carbon fiber they contain 4.2 kg of hydrogen. Their autonomy is 320 km. The acceleration. The 0-100 km/h in 12 seconds. Their speed is 160 km/h.

Their other assets. They can operate at temperatures below zero degrees and are equipped with wireless communication for engineers collect data. Not bad!
