Energy minister Mike O’Brien recently opened a pilot facility in Crawley, Sussex that will be used to develop manufacturing techniques for the mass production of a revolutionary fuel cell.
Ceres Power, a commercial spin off from Imperial College London, aims to put a mini power station into every home. Using natural gas it produces heat and electricity efficiently and with little pollution. The Ceres fuel cell is a small, power-dense device. The size of a brick and made of stainless steel, it is extremely robust.
