Power & Energy gets fuel cell contract

Jan. 8, 2004 — Power & Energy Inc. is using a U.S. defense research contract to develop nanostructured membranes for fuel cell applications, according to a news release.

Power & Energy plans to make the thin-film membranes to enable fuel cell users to generate high-purity hydrogen-on-demand from any reformed fuel source. The company said the membrane technology is ideal for early adoption of fuel cells in remote, portable and mobile applications, such as backpack fuel cells for soldiers or distributed electric power generation for ships.

The Phase II Small Business Innovation Research contract awarded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, allows the Ivyland, Pa.-based company to continue its fuel cell work.
