Bramble Energy has received £35 million investment to help solve key challenges in the production and implementation of hydrogen fuel cell stacks.

Unlike other hydrogen fuel cell models, Bramble's products are based on printed circuit boards. This means they can be made using existing global manufacturing infrastructure, requiring significantly less time and investment.

This new investment has been led by HydrogenOne Capital Growth plc and is supported by the existing institutional investors (BGF, IP Group, Parkwalk Advisors and the UCL Technology Fund).

The funding will enable Bramble to grow its UK-based team from 35 to over 100 employees. It’ll also help the company deploy zero-emission projects with commercial partners.

Bramble Energy has been supported by UCL Business (UCLB), the university’s commercialisation company and part of UCL Innovation & Enterprise, and the UCL Technology Fund. It’s also received substantial funding from UCL's EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account.

UCL Vice-Provost (Research, Innovation & Global Engagement) Professor David Price said: “Congratulations to the hugely talented team at Bramble Energy, who have taken ground-breaking research and turned it into real products that have the potential to deliver a cleaner and more sustainable world.

"The support that UCL has given Bramble Energy, particularly at the very early-stage of ideas, reflects the important role universities play in bringing to market high potential companies that drive innovation and help to build back better.”
