A memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed by Imperial College London and the University of Science and Technology in Korea to develop fuel cell technology.
The MoU is intended to advance the involvement in hydrogen and fuel cell research between UK and Korea.
A Professor from each establishment signed the MoU at Imperial College London’s Energy Future Lab, which will be the focal point of the research and is the UK’s hub for hydrogen and fuel cell technology research.
Professor Nigel Brandon, director of the EFL said: “Korea is investing heavily in a range of energy technologies including fuel cells, reflecting the country’s relative lack of natural resources. As fuel cells are the most efficient form of electricity generation for a range of fuels, including natural gas and hydrogen, this is of significant interest for Korean industry to develop for both its home and international markets.”
