One of Bramble’s forays into this market is its higher-power range extenders, which help electric vehicles charge faster and run longer.
These can be retrofitted and give smaller petrol engines a clean boost.
The extenders’ first demonstrator for Renault’s Kangoo ZE car is set to hit the road this year after partnering with Mahle Powertrain.
More partnerships with multinational customers are in the works, including higher-powered, liquid-cooled cell systems.
The company’s innovative core concepts were developed by engineers and scientists at Imperial College and University College London, resulting in a spin-out in 2016. With an estimated £2.5 million turnover in 2023 for the SD range, the company’s visionary core concepts were developed by engineers and scientists at Imperial College and University College London, resulting in a spin-out in 2016.
Hydrogen fuel cells, which operate through an electrochemical reaction rather than combustion, are generating more interest than ever before.
Conventional cells, on the other hand, are inflexible and prohibitively costly to produce, and they aren’t especially durable.
Bramble is working to change that with a device built on a staple of modern life: the printed circuit board (PCB).
Its proprietary smart PCBFC works in stacks of hydrogen and can be manufactured by existing circuit board factories without requiring expensive changes in output.
Bramble’s performance would benefit UK printed circuit board producers and the domestic supply chain, so there’s another benefit.
The company received £5.6 million in two funding rounds from a combination of venture and growth capital investors, including the Business Growth Fund and Parkwalk Advisors, which specializes in backing UK tech companies. This year, there will be another boost.
