An Ann Arbor fuel cell manufacturer, Adaptive Materials, announced earlier this week that it had been awarded $3 through the Michigan Centers of Energy Excellence Program (COEE).
Adaptive Materials currently manufactures two different fuel cells — a 50-watt fuel cell that delivers portable power to soldiers in the field and a 250-watt unit that powers unmanned military vehicles. The company’s 250-watt unit is the basis for its RV and consumer leisure market fuel cell; Adaptive Materials’ fuel cells can provide the auxiliary power needed for TVs, radios, laptops, microwaves, and other creature comforts in an RV.
Unlike other fuel cells that run on hydrogen or other hard to source fuels, inexpensive and globally available propane, butane and LPG power all Adaptive Materials fuel cells.
Adaptive Materials is the world’s first company to develop, demonstrate and deliver a portable, affordable, and fuel flexible solid oxide fuel cell system.
