Cooperation in research project on new charging station concepts

Published on: Nov 17, 2021

The Nexus-fc consortium has received approval for funding from the "KMU-innovativ" program of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research in the category "Climate Protection".
The basic idea of the project is to develop a scalable concept for fast and grid-independent charging of electric buses in public transport.  Accordingly, a charging system is being developed that draws energy from a fuel cell throughout the day and provides high charging powers from a battery buffer storage. The consortium is based on a joint venture between Schäfer Elektronik GmbH and the fuel cell specialist Proton Motor Fuel Cell. Other project partners include the KIT, the Frankfurt public transport operator ICB, and fischer Power Solutions GmbH as battery supplier.
