One German fuel cell manufacturer that recently changed its name is new enerday, now known as Sunfire Fuel Cells. Based in Neubrandenburg, the company was acquired by Sunfire, headquartered in Dresden, last fall (see H2-international, January 2019). As part of the deal, Matthias Boltze, who used to be new enerday’s sole chief executive, now shares the role of CEO with Andreas Frömmel, vice president of sales and marketing at Sunfire.
Their joint aim is to offer a product lineup consisting of LPG-fueled micro-CHP devices for residential buildings and off-grid uninterruptible power supply systems. Carl Berninghausen, Sunfire’s chief executive, said that the “restructuring of operations meant moving fuel cell research, development and production to a single location, Neubrandenburg, where we will create the country’s first Fuel Cell Center of Excellence.”
