New fuel cell generation EFOY COMFORT sets new milestones in motor home market

  • EFOY COMFORT enjoys very good market launch
  • Customers appreciate additional convenience and extremely quiet operation
  • New: pan-European network of authorised EFOY dealers
  • EFOY COMFORT integrated in CIVD “Green Caravaning” motor home

Brunnthal/Munich,Germany, 26 August 2011 – SFC Energy AG, technology and market leader in mobile and off-grid power solutions based on fuel-cell technology, will be giving a first assessment of the successful launch of the new generation of EFOY COMFORT fuel cells at this year’s Caravan Salon in Duesseldorf.

The EFOY COMFORT fuel cells, which were introduced on 26 May, will be offered by a current total of 20 motor home manufacturers at Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf. The manufacturers will be offering a version of their vehicles already equipped with an EFOY fuel cell (‘EFOY Inside’) as well as an ‘EFOY Ready’ variant, i.e. motor homes in which owners only have to connect and switch on an EFOY fuel cell.

SFC has established a pan-European network of authorised EFOY dealers in order to support customers better and even more efficiently with information on the numerous benefits and possibilities of EFOY COMFORT fuel cells. Certified dealers have comprehensive knowledge of EFOY technology and applications and are committed to maintaining a stock of EFOY fuel cell cartridges and units for EFOY users at all times.

With the EFOY COMFORT, an SFC product is once again the only standard fuel cell available on the market to be integrated into the “Green Caravaning” motor home of the CIVD industry association. Each year the association presents its green motor home featuring only environmentally sound caravaning products.



The new EFOY COMFORT series consists of three models with a charging capacity of 80, 140 or 210 Ah per day for ultimate flexibility in power supplies. The new product line is characterised by 15 per cent higher performance, by up to 15 per cent higher cost-effectiveness and by even quieter operation thanks to the intelligent use of vibration-absorbing cushioning elements used in the automotive industry. In addition to improved ease of use, the new EFOY COMFORT models for the first time come with an expert mode that allows individual settings to be made such as adjustments to switching thresholds.

Visitors wishing to learn more can experience the new EFOY COMFORT fuel cells live in Düsseldorf at the EFOY stand, A36, in Hall 13.
