Ceres Power commences residential CHP field trials in consumers' homes

01 Feb 2011

Ceres Power Holdings has announced that the Company has commenced commercial field trials of its wall-mounted Combined Heat and Power (CHP) product in occupied homes.

Following receipt of the formal CE certificate, an operating fuel cell CHP product generating heat and power has now been installed in the family home of a British Gas customer in South East England. The field trials programme will continue throughout 2011 and into 2012 with CHP products being deployed in a wide range of homes across the country.  In addition, there is an extensive on-going testing programme of CHP products and components at the Company's test facilities. 

The first wave of CHP products is being installed in consumers' homes during the first quarter of 2011, with the second wave of products incorporating valuable in-field experience to follow six months later. The final wave of at least 150 field trial CHP products will take place in 2012 to test the Company's ability to scale-up for initial product sales and volume launch with British Gas.

The CHP products for the field trials are being manufactured using volume-capable processes, with the fuel cells at the heart of the product being produced at the Ceres factory in Horsham and the CHP boiler assembly taking place at the Daalderop factory in Holland.
