HRH The Prince of Wales views fuel cell demonstration by AFC Energy at COP26

03 November 2021, Glasgow - Today at the COP26 Conference, HRH The Prince of Wales, saw a demonstration of AFC Energy's zero-emission Hydrogen power generator that has featured in the inaugural Extreme E all-electric SUV racing series in 2021

His Royal Highness was hosting McLaren Racing's event where Zak Brown, McLaren Racing CEO, confirmed their entry into Extreme E in 2022 and announced Emma Gilmour as the team's first-ever female driver. McLaren will be the latest team to join the series, raising awareness of the impact of climate change, participating in Extreme E's robust legacy programmes, and leaving a lasting footprint by engaging its fans around the world to take climate action.

His Royal Highness was also able to see a demonstration, given by AFC Energy's CEO, Adam Bond, of how hydrogen fuelled power generation, an alternative zero emission off grid power source, is being pioneered by Extreme E and all its race teams in a world first to remotely charge the electric SUVs competing in the series in a completely sustainable manner.

The fuel cell system engineered and designed by AFC Energy in collaboration with Extreme E, has successfully featured in each of the first four races of the 2021 season, charging race vehicles successfully in Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Greenland and Sardinia without harmful greenhouse emissions.

Operation of AFC Energy's genuinely sustainable clean energy system has been witnessed at each race location by representatives from industry and off-grid power users seeking to address the evolving transition from diesel fuelled power, thereby delivering on Extreme E's aspiration of mixing sport with purpose in order to inspire long term change.

Adam Bond, Chief Executive Officer of AFC Energy, said:

" It was an honour to meet HRH The Prince of Wales at COP26 and to demonstrate the real-world application of our technology. We were able to show how AFC Energy, a British business champion, is at the forefront of clean tech innovation and focused on developing the solutions needed to limit the effects of climate change.

"I am delighted to see another famous marque like McLaren join Extreme E and want to thank Zak and the team for inviting us to join today's event and allowing us to showcase our zero emission hydrogen power generators."
