AFC have demonstrated that their fuel cell can be adapted for EV charging.....it is now the decision of Rolec as to whether it is a viable proposition or not.....there may not be a suitable market in the UK ....but Rolec are global and may find a market outside the UK.....and as I have already posted before Rolec are also into off grid power generation ....

It could be different tariffs for different time of day, when I looked at that charging point in Perivale west London it was 7.30am on a Saturday, possibly the cheapest rate.....reading here and there on the internet I can see prices vary considerably.....

Yes, rapid charge at £6.50 for 30 kwh is around 21p per kwh.
That makes more sense.
Also, if the AFC unit is aimed at off grid locations the price per kwh may be higher.
Prices seem to be very variable, from free at workplaces and some supermarkets where you shop while you charge, to very high where you have no other option on a longer journey.

Hello Sturmtrupper,

If the price per kwh is 2.1-3p that makes it the cheapest electricity in the world!
Even cheap chlor-alkali contacts are in the 4-6p per kwh range and my domestic electricity is far above this.
Is this price in kw different from the kwh unit, or is it heavily subsidised for some reason?

I keep trying to remain positive but I keep getting the feeling AFC have no sense of direction and drift from one idea to the next without a clue what they’re doing, hence why they are being left behind in all areas they have previously mentioned as target markets.

Not to mention the environmental cost of a generator running constantly for 2.2 -3.1 years.... cough splutter etc...

How do the sums compare with diesel generators now that AFC have somewhere between 2.2 - 3.1 years longevity...?
What’s the life of a constantly running generator and what’s the cost of a comparable unit of hydrogen v a litre of diesel..
are we there yet...?

I was in Perivale west London yesterday and at the petrol station there was one of this new fast EV charging point and it could charge up to 80% in half an hour and more interesting it costs 2.1p a kilowatt.....how would AFC compare I wonder...?

Perhaps there could be a partnership between AFC and ITM Power. ITM produce hydrogen from renewable energy, and they use that hydrogen to fill hydrogen powered vehicles. Perhaps hydrogen could be stored and used for a dual purpose, filling hydrogen powered cars and also to produce electricity for AFC's chargers, both kinds of supply at the same service stations.

If car charging is to be the primary focus for AFC going forwards it seems that they will need to form some alliances very quickly as others are ahead in jockeying for position in this marketplace.

I often wonder why AFC has not mentioned data centres recently. We know they have huge power needs, and rely on continuous power so back up solutions are important to them. I would have thought a prime market.

More on fast EV chargers in Europe from the Sunday Times: “BMW, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz and Ford are to build 400 ultra-rapid charging stations in Europe by next year, including 40 in Britain......the four brands, working in an alliance called Ionity, are investing £34m, with matched funding from the European Union....other companies, including Chargemaster and Pod Point are also planning high power networks in the UK.”
