AFC Energy inks agreement with Peel Environmental

AFC Energy has signed an agreement with Peel Environmental Limited to assess the techno-economic feasibility of the UK’s largest hydrogen fuel cell precinct at Peel’s Protos industrial park.

Protos is located between Manchester, Liverpool and Chester and will deliver 250 hectares of industrial development in the North West of England.

It represents a strategic cluster of businesses encompassing energy intensive industries with associated supply chains and importantly, reflects Peel’s vision for an energy generation hub that provides secure, low carbon and low cost energy generation to its onsite facilities.

AFC Energy will conduct the assessment in collaboration with Peel and other third party partners to review a range of hydrogen sources and offtake arrangements and work with local stakeholders that will see a proposed phasing of fuel cell projects at Protos commencing at 1MW through to an estimated 35MW to 50MW of installed capacity at the site.

At 9:58am: (LON:AFC) AFC Energy PLC share price was +1.01p at 21.38p
