Partnership Bramble Energy and EDAG for hydrogen skateboard platform

Partnership Bramble Energy ed EDAG per la piattaforma di skateboard a idrogeno

Bramble Energy has signed an MoU with the EDAG Group to collaborate on the development of a digital integration of its fuel cell into EDAG’s electric vehicle storage platform.

Bramble Energy has a proprietary technology of patented printed circuit board fuel cell (PCBFC) and the digital investigation will involve the design of a customised fuel cell stack as well as the overall system layout fitting the EV platform (incl. batteries, hydrogen storage and FC stack with major BoP components), with clear vehicle simulation data providing evidence for its feasibility.

Partnership Bramble Energy ed EDAG per la piattaforma di skateboard a idrogenoThe project between Bramble and EDAG Group, named ‘FC-STORM’, aims to create and showcase a design study of the 3D integration of Bramble’s cutting-edge hydrogen fuel cell system into EDAG’s storage platform designed for passenger vehicles and light commercial vehicles. With the limited space available within the skateboard platform presenting the biggest challenge, Bramble’s PCBFC has been selected due to its versatility to be manufactured to almost any size or arrangement delivering a high-power, flexible solution to meet the stringent requirements.

Bramble’s ground-breaking PCBFC solution will be digitally incorporated into EDAG’s customisable energy platform (adaptable hydrogen and battery energy storage quantities). The study will highlight the broad range of advantages that a combined fuel cell and skateboard solution offers, with its flexibility, sustainability and cost-efficiency combining to demonstrate the performance values of a fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV).

The requirement for the project will be a power output of > 40 kW including batteries and hydrogen storage at 700 bar which can be scaled depending on customer selected geometry variables of the skateboard such as height and width. Further System benefits are harnessed by realising a high voltage fuel cell adapted to a typical vehicle voltage level (i.e. 400 V or 800 V) that can be cooled without the need for deionised water, enabling a highly integrated electric power supply for mobility which surpasses current technical standards.
