University of Birmingham

The University of Birmingham is the only research institution in the UK to have integrated research work across all aspects of fuel cells and their fuels. With an internationally recognised programme of research into hydrogen as a future energy vector, and the development of key technologies, from sustainable production and hydrogen storage to commercial utilisation, as well as the efficient provision of electricity and heat from fuel cells.

The Birmingham Centre for Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Research is nationally and internationally recognised for its expertise in fuel cell technologies. The Centre focuses on research and development, applications and demonstrations of fuel cell and hydrogen systems and technologies.

Our research is driving both the technology and thinking required to solve some of the challenges facing the UK, as it seeks to develop sustainable solutions to the designing of future cities, energy and transportation. It is the ability to combine the practical with the radical, which has placed Birmingham at the forefront of this endeavour.
