Agreement with global OEM partner extends the SteelCell® technology into power systems for residential applications and is part-funded by Innovate UK

Ceres Power Holdings plc (AIM: CWR) is pleased to announce a new SOFC (Solid Oxide Fuel Cell) System Joint Development Agreement with one of the global OEMs in its partner portfolio.

This new 2 year agreement will enable Ceres Power to jointly develop power generation systems for residential markets using its unique metal supported SteelCell® technology.

The SteelCell® offers an affordable path for fuel cell power systems which can address the need for decarbonising power and heat across the world.  This key challenge has inspired successful support mechanisms for fuel cell systems across many countries at government level.  

Recognising the decarbonisation of heat in houses as a defining issue for CO2 reduction targets, the UK Government is supporting the development of the SteelCell® into residential power systems through £0.7m of funding to Ceres Power from Innovate UK.

Ceres Power is working with global OEMs to embed the SteelCell® technology into power systems for Residential Applications, Businesses, Data Centres and Electric Vehicles.

Phil Caldwell, Chief Executive of Ceres Power commented:

“I am delighted to be developing a next generation power system with the SteelCell® technology at its core with one of our world-leading partners. We look forward to taking our latest system designs and recent real-world operating experience and combining it with our partner’s product expertise”.
