We are therefore pleased to announce that an official presentation will take place during the 12th Progress in Fuel Cell Systems event that is taking place in Bruges (Belgium) on Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd May. HEATSTACK will feature in a panel discussion chaired by Charlie Penny of Senior Flexonics (UK).

Progress in Fuel Cell Systems is an annual workshop series that has been taking place since 2008 to bring together industry, research and academia that are active in the field of Fuel Cell System technology. The objectives include enabling exchange of information, with themes such as state-of-the-art, best practice, novel developments on experiences from operating fuel cell systems, balance of plant components, operating strategies, lifetime and durability, and market development. The event is jointly managed by the University of Birmingham and participants will benefit from access to some of the best worldwide knowledge in fuel cell systems.
