Fuel cells

Due to the fact that fuel cells are essentially non-polluting, it’s no surprise they’re playing an integral role in the global drive for cleaner, greener energy and reduced carbon emissions.  

From small, portable units for powering personal electronics, through to those designed to power electric vehicles and spacecraft, and very large stationary units capable of generating megawatts of energy to feed into the mains electricity network, along with growth in the electric vehicle space, fuel cell development is the epitome of cross-disciplinary innovation, encompassing chemistry, engineering, electronics and materials science 

The multitude of interdisciplinary fuel cell expertise across HGF’s large attorney team provides major multinationals, SMEs and university spin outs with the strongest possible IP support. With wide-ranging experience across the firm’s technology teams, HGF’s specialist attorneys provide the requisite mix of skills, along with in-depth academic experience, in this important, technical field.
