Clean beyond green
Ceramic Fuel Cells Ltd (CFCL) is working to make energy efficiency a reality for industry and consumers alike. The company has developed micro-Combined Heat and Power (micro-CHP) units, which electrochemically convert natural gas into electricity that can be accessed from regular sockets.
CFCL was attracted to the UK market and approached UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) in Melbourne to help plan and execute a market-entry strategy for the UK. With this support, including introductions to professional service providers and headhunters, CFCL was incorporated as a UK company in 2004. This was the start of its strong and continuing business relationship with UKTI.
In September 2011, the company secured approval from the Micro-Generation Certification Scheme. CFCL’s domestic customers in the UK will now be able to sell excess electricity generated by their BlueGen micro-CHPs to the national grid.
“Without UKTI, it would have taken a lot longer to establish ourselves within the UK energy market,” says Trent Rowe, Group General Manager for Product & Marketing at Ceramic Fuel Cells Ltd. “Their guidance and support has helped us all along the way, from deciding where to locate our UK factory, to considering which markets to export to.”
