State Government approves new research project: „Development of an power and cost efficient high pressure electrolyser for generating of hydrogen up to 200 bar“ - December 2015

On 1st June 2015 a new three year longing research project started in the research institute HIAT (Hydrogen and Informatics Institut of Applied Technology) about the development of a new type of PEM water electrolysis system. It is a cooperation project between the HIAT gGmbH and the innovative industrial company Hydyne GmbH. The State Government Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and the Eropean Fund for Regional Development support this project. More information
 
 

Federal Government granted HIAT new research project: „Development of a novel MEA for the High Temperature Fuel Cell and its Process Engineering for Assembling“ (eco HT-PEM) - September 2015

On the 1st of June, 2015 a new two year longing research project started in the research institute H.I.A.T. gGmbH located in Schwerin for the development of an innovative core component for high temperature fuel cells. The project was laid out as a cooperation research project between the H.I.A.T. gGmbH and another company which will use the new core component for economic fuel cell systems in the lower KW power range. The main focus of the project work exists in the clear reduction of the costs for the MEA (Membrane Electrode Assembly) as well as increase of the efficiency. More information

participation at the work group "Forschung, Entwicklung und Lehre" of the Landesenergierat M-V - 23.11.2012

In the beginning of November 2012 Energy Minister Schlotmann called the Landesenergierat to life. The task of the National Energy Council is to advise the Department of Energy in developing the country's energy strategy and to submit proposals for action. Therefore the five working groups of the Landesenergierat were set aside. The HIAT engages in the working group regularly and tackles together with specialists and stakeholders from the energy sector current issues. More information
 
 

grant for new research project APES - 31.07.2012

The project APES (Advanced PEM Electrolysis System) aims to develop and optimize the structure of a PEM electrolyser. Specifically the development of a novel and efficient 5-layer MEA (Membrane Electrode Assembly) for PEM electrolysers is a concise project goal. The basis for this project is already set by a platinum-free CCM (Catalyst Coated Membrane) for PEM electrolysis stacks developed by HIAT.
