Battery manufacturer Grupo Cegasa has announced plans to lead a team of fifteen companies in a four-year co-operative effort to improve upon current hydrogen fuel-cell technology. Two different types of cells will be the main focus of the project; polymer membrane and solid oxide fuel cells. In particular, reducing the cost to manufacture fuel-cells and improving the length of their operating life are seen as key factors in taking fuel-cells mainstream.

Analysis: Cegasa, which operates two modern manufacturing plants to produce alkaline and zinc-chloride batteries, sees hydrogen fuel-cells as taking over from traditional battery technologies and are making their play to ensure they have a piece of the fuel-cell market in the future. It will be interesting to see how successful this consortium of internationally diverse companies is in meeting their goals.
