SolydEra and Convion to jointly address growth in fuel-cell and hydrogen market

Pergine Valsugana (Italy) and Espoo (Finland), September 25th 2023

SolydEra and Convion announced today that they have entered into a global strategic partnership.

The agreement brings together SolydEra’s industry leading solid oxide technology and Convion’s flexible power generation and hydrogen production systems’ technology.
The energy sector plays a strategic role in every aspect of business. With a constant electricity demand rising, companies recognize the need to adopt more efficient and greener solutions to ensure competitiveness and proceed rapidly on the critical pathway towards the Net Zero emissions.

“Proven fuel cell power and hydrogen generation technologies are in huge demand. The gas to power generation (SOFC) market is expected to grow fast to 800bn already in 2040 and rapid growth thereafter. The Green hydrogen market is expected to reach 800bn already ten years later.” Martin Füllenbach, SolydEra’s Chairman and CEO explains. “Our partnership brings together market efficient solutions suitable for large commercial and industrial applications, both for gas to power generation (SOFC) and Hydrogen generation (SOE)”, adds Füllenbach.

“We are excited to partner with SolydEra to commercialize our innovative SOC systems together with such a highly recognized company in this field.” comments Erkko Fontell, CEO and co-founder of Convion. “This collaboration aligns perfectly with our technology and partnering strategies and will accelerate growth for both parties. Convion is committed to providing highly efficient and reliable solutions to power generation and hydrogen production markets. Through the partnership with Solydera we look forward to serving our customers with increased delivery capacity and with a unique combination of Convion systems technologies and the SolydEra’s SOC stacks.” explains Mr. Fontell.
