About Us

AFC Energy produces generating units that can be either used for large-scale electricity production, co-located in commercial or business premises or integrated into bespoke application units.

Company Timeline

AFC Energy is edging increasingly closer to delivery of a commercial-scale fuel cell system capable of deployment across a range of markets. We will continue to push hard to achieve these ambitious goals and ensure that the system we take to market achieves not only short-term operational success, but also longevity, safety and stability of power supply across the life of the project.
