Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE and the University of Cape Town (UCT) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to accelerate progress in the fields of hydrogen (H2) and fuel cell technology.
Having developed a valuable working relationship over the years, UCT’s Department of Chemical Engineering and Dr Christopher Helbing – the Director of Fraunhofer ISE’s division of H2 technologies – decided to formalise the collaboration. In February both parties came together to sign a MoU centred around H2 technologies.
Under this document, experts from both institutions will collaborate in activities to accelerate progress in the fields of H2 and fuel cell technology.
Fraunhofer ISE’s work in H2 technologies is comprised of fundamental research into the production, conversion and catalytic processing of H2. It also includes models to investigate the role of H2 in future energy systems.

The European Union (EU) has launched a five-year project that aims to replace diesel generators widely used for backup and temporary power with a hydrogen (H2)-powered equivalent.
