The UK’s Technology Strategy Board (TSB) has announced that it is to invest around £9m into projects involving fuel cells and hydrogen technologies.

According to Fuel Cell Today, the total value of the research is worth approximately £17m, with additional funds to be contributed by participating companies.

According to the TSB, the funding is aimed at lowering the costs of developing fuel cells for stationary, transport and portable power markets, while improving reliability, durability and performance levels of low, intermediate and high temperature systems.

It also appears to affirm the faith held in the adoption of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies as the alternative fuel of the future.

The projects will identify how to help the adoption of hydrogen in the UK and develop a sustainable hydrogen supply.
