BASF HT-PEM Fuel Cell Exit Positive for Danish Firms

29 Aug 2013


In our latest Analyst View, Fuel Cell Today highlighted the continuation of research and development into high-temperature PEM fuel cell technology despite the exit from this space of high profile companies such as BASF and ClearEdge Power. A recent article published by the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) reinforces this point and highlights increased interest in Danish HT-PEMFC technologies since the BASF announcement, and the potential for boosting jobs in the country.

DTU has worked for many years on HT-PEMFC technology in cooperation with Danish Power Systems which develops membrane electrode assemblies for HT-PEMFC.

Hans Aage Hjuler, CEO of Danish Power Systems, is looking to gain market share after the exit of BASF and was quoted in the article: "We have received a considerable amount of new customers after the changes at BASF."
