Fuel Cell Power Generation

Clean Energy from Fuel Cells

AVL offers complete solutions for decentralized power generation

Fuel Cell Power Generation

Decarbonizing the economy is not only one of the number one goals, but also one of the most ambitious goals of all industrialized nations. Implementing this plan requires decentralized power generation from non-fossil fuels.

AVL supports you as an innovative engineering service provider, so that you can meet the rapidly growing demand for sustainable power generation systems. With the high-temperature fuel cell, we offer you a modular, scalable, and highly efficient solution that can be used worldwide. This eases the burden on existing networks, allows new energy sources to be tapped into, and ultimately facilitates the operation of a needs-based and cost-optimized energy infrastructure. We are on hand to support you from the project outline, to development, to reaching series maturity, and the commissioning of systems.

The development of stationary fuel cells has gained massive momentum in recent years. The demand for non-fossil energy is growing – but existing grids are often unable to meet this demand.

Various manufacturers are currently supplying plant manufacturers with technologies that are mostly used to convert hydrogen into electrical energy. We see this as only one aspect of the bigger picture, and offer you a significantly expanded range of options – for a new generation of fuel cells, based on a wide scope of fuels.

5 kW Ethanol SOFC CHP System

The technology for converting environmentally friendly and non-fossil fuels – e.g. hydrogen, methanol, ethanol – must guarantee maximum availability to ensure a seamless energy supply.

Which is why we invest a significant portion of our resources into research and development. We are happy to share the knowledge we have gained – and support you in finding the best stationary solution for you. We integrate our technology into the overall system – and parameterize it to suit your specific requirements.

Do you also rely on the provision of energy from renewable fuels? If so, we will help you align your product requirements with the physical limitations of the process. We use feasibility tests to balance process goals and the process flow.

Our services are tailor-made for you. We develop subsystems and single components. Depending on your needs, we can also equip you with turnkey, validated complete systems. As a matter of principle, we carry out the development work in-house – while implementing your demands and requirements consistently.

Great Efficiency – Low Costs

Each of your projects has its own technological characteristics, which we consider and implement consistently. Thereby, the goal is always the same: With the high-temperature fuel cell, based on an innovative process of generating energy from renewable sources, we achieve cost-attractiveness, environmental friendliness, and the greatest possible efficiency.

As a full-service provider, we offer you a comprehensive range of services from a single source – from consulting to product development.

We can design and test the various fuel cell systems on a customer-specific basis, and thus help bring your product to market.

Our efficient development methodology allows us to reduce the development time and commissioning of solutions developed specifically for you to a minimum. This enables you to feed the systems into operation as quickly as possible.

The fuel cell technology can also be adapted flexibly for fuels that will be available in the future.
