Ballard Power Systems and Anglo American Platinum Announces the Launch of A Field Trial of Methanol-Fuelled Home Generator System

Ballard Power Systems and Anglo American Platinum announced the launch of a field trial of a methanol-fuelled home generator system in an off-grid residential application. Ballard and Anglo American Platinum have partnered with Eskom, South Africa's power utility, and The Department of Energy of South Africa to conduct the 12-month field trial. The trial is being conducted in the rural community of Naledi Trust, identified by South Africa's Department of Energy as a suitable site, without access to grid power. Naledi Trust is part of the Moqhaka Local Municipality in the southern part of the Fezile Dabi District of the Free State province of South Africa. Platinum-based fuel cells provide a significant economic and environmental development opportunity for South Africa by facilitating the provision of clean, reliable and cost-effective power. As a result, last year the South African government made a commitment of investment funding to support home generator field trials, reinforcing support for that country's fuel cell industry.
