DOE Reports 'Major Milestone' in Affordable FC Development.
The DOE Office of Fossil Energy noted that Delphi is heading one of six industrial teams working with DOE to produce low-cost fuel cells, collaborating with Columbus, OH-based science and technology firm Batelle on the development of an all solid-state fuel cell capable of being mass produced for automotive and truck auxiliary power units, distributed power generating stations and military markets.
"The latest Delphi fuel cell tests were relatively small compared to the units envisioned for future commercial sales, but they demonstrated that the necessary power density levels are technologically possible," said the DOE Office of Fossil Energy. "The test cells produced an initial power density of 575 milliwatts per square centimeter at 0.7 volts nominal in full-size stacks, bettering [DOE's] target of 500 milliwatts per square centimeter."
