Brunnthal/Munich, Germany, April 19, 2022 – SFC Energy AG (F3C:DE, ISIN: DE0007568578), a leading supplier of hydrogen and methanol fuel cells for stationary and mobile hybrid power solutions, reaches another milestone in its communicated growth strategy.
As part of the further internationalization of its business, SFC Energy signs the "Make in India" agreement today with its longtime partner FC TecNrgy Pvt Ltd (FCTec).
"Make in India" is an initiative of the Indian government to encourage companies to manufacture and sell their products in the domestic market. SFC Energy has already been cooperating with its partner FCTec since 2014 and will from now on jointly manufacture all components of its EFOY Hydrogen and EFOY Methanol fuel cells as well as energy solutions also in India.
The EFOY Hydrogen 2.5 is a modular hydrogen fuel cell solution that meets the highest demands of professional users. As an emission-free replacement for diesel generators, the EFOY Hydrogen offers an innovative solution to a wide range of user industries that can be easily adapted to any application. Compared to a conventional diesel generator, for example, a 5 kW hydrogen fuel cell energy solution saves up to 45.6 tons of CO2 based on an assumed annual demand of 43,800 kilowatt hours (kWh). This corresponds to the driving perfomance of a diesel-powered car of about 250,000 kilometers. The product portfolio will be available in a power range from currently 50 kW to perspectively 500 kW. SFC Energy is thus tapping into the great potential of a dynamically growing market for environmentally friendly power generation solutions.
Most recently, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi reaffirmed the country’s ambitious climate protection targets. By 2070, India is aiming for net zero emissions and a 45% cut by 2030. The use of green hydrogen as an energy carrier will play a decisive role in this. The National Hydrogen Energy Mission is a broad-based program to promote this, with an estimated investment of USD 44 billion by 2030.
"We want to expand our presence in India and contribute our deep expertise in hydrogen and related technologies to achieve the ambitious climate protection targets. We are grateful and honored for the opportunity to contribute to this objective. EFOY fuel cells enable efficient and emission-free power generation for a wide power range and numerous applications. Together with our long-term partner FCTec we share the vision of a climate-neutral industrial society and the conviction to be a success factor of the global energy transition," says Dr Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG.
"We are very proud to be one of the first Indian companies to implement and drive the National Hydrogen Energy Mission with a German partner. In our many years of cooperation, we have so far received consistently positive feedback for our solutions from users in a wide range of industries and are convinced that we can add another chapter to this success story," says Colonel Karandeep Singh (retd.), Managing Director of FC TecNrgy Pvt Ltd.
