The hydrogen fuel cell product, developed by Sunrise Power based in northeast China's Dalian, can be switched on below minus 10 degrees Celsius and reserved in minus 40 degrees Celsius.
The fuel cell has high stability, high performance and high reliability, according to the website of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It has been applied in Chinese fuel cell powered vehicles.
Fuel cell module is a core component of fuel cell powered vehicles.
The researchers of Sunrise Power, which is partly held by an institute of the academy, are also developing fuel cell modules with higher power density and lower cost.
