Autostack Industrie in dialogue with suppliers for the scaling-up of automotive fuel cells
The German project Autostack Industrie, which is being sponsored by the German Government and with PowerCell as one of its partners, met in late June for a joint workshop with developers and suppliers to establish the requirements for a mass production of fuel cell stacks for passenger cars.

The Autostack Industrie project is a joint initiative of the German Automotive industry to create the technological and production technology prerequisites for the commercial introduction of fuel cell vehicles in Germany and Europe by around 2020. In December 2017 PowerCell was appointed partner and stack integrator in Autostack Industrie. The German auto manufacturers BMW, Daimler, Ford and Volkswagen are also key stakeholders in the project.
During the recent workshop the project partners informed developers and suppliers about relevant aspects of component and stack design, important system interfaces and main components, and the processes required for mass production as well as Government funding opportunities. PoweCell’s deputy CEO and CEO of PowerCell Germany, Per Ekdunge, participated at the workshop together with the company’s Chief Technology Officer, Thomas Tingelöf,.
The Autostack Industrie Project receives funding of 21,3 MEUR within the scope of the National Innovation Programme Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology, NIP (Nationales Innovationsprogramm Wasserstoff und Brennstoffzellentechnologie).
