Adelan and BCU team up to support new green technology businesses to grow in Birmingham, targeting local problems like climate change and air pollution

Posted  March 4 2020

Birmingham’s Millennium Point is the site of a new space dedicated to greentech business development and networking. Local fuel cell technology pioneers Adelan teamed up with Birmingham City University’s (BCU) STEAMhouse to provide the space, which will also house the Midlands Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Network, an organisation dedicated to commercialising fuel cell technology.

Located at the heart of Birmingham city centre, the Millennium Point location will support students, graduates and local creative and digital entrepreneurs who wish to start and grow a business.

STEAM blends Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) and Arts graduates and makers to generate new high growth businesses in the city.  In the fuel cells and hydrogen sector, this creates new products, applications, digital platforms, data services and marketing approaches which can support local businesses and policy makers to understand the benefits of these technologies. Offering high quality and flexible business support, including workshops, high profile events, one to one mentoring and coaching, entrepreneur in residence, legal, accounting, finance issues and much more, the STEAMincubator offers specially designed spaces to prototype new products and develop new ideas including a fabrication facility at STEAMhouse.

Commenting on the development, Adelan CEO Dr Michaela Kendall, said: “We are delighted to be working with BCU as they build the STEAM pipeline to support the inventive ideas being generated every day in Birmingham. These ideas are being captured by BCU in a unique way, so that artists and technologists can create new and successful businesses together.  Ideally, our fuel cells will be designed and made in Birmingham, and we rely on digital platforms to enable wide deployment.  This will create the positive environmental impacts we know fuel cells can deliver for the whole of Birmingham and beyond”.

About Adelan

First founded in The Midlands, Birmingham-based Adelan pioneered microtubular solid oxide fuel cell (mSOFC) technology more than 30 years ago. Adelan’s patented and scalable technology gives the fuel cell unprecedented flexibility, allowing the system to run cleanly on a range of commonly available fuels such as LPG, natural gas or propane/butane mix. As a result, though Adelan fuel cells can also run on hydrogen, they offer considerable additional operational flexibility and ease of use benefits whilst retaining a small, compact and lightweight footprint.
