Metacon and the German green tech distributor Brennstoffzelle4home GmbH (B4H) have signed an MoU for the distribution and sale of Metacon’s Combined Heat, and Power (CHP) unit ‘H2PS-5’ on the German market.
B4H has received orders from customers for the first five H2PS-5 units for delivery following the receipt of the German product certification.
Driven by the market potential and the increasing demand for clean energy and fuel solutions that are largely independent of foreign countries, the hydrogen and the hydrogen-related market is developing rapidly in Germany. In this context, Metacon already decided on a special focus on the German market during the introduction and early growth phase of the CHP and hydrogen generator product lines.
The business of B4H, part of B4H Green Energy SE, focuses on the development, manufacture, distribution and installation of fuel cells and other energy systems in Germany. In this context, the company evaluated the CHP market in Germany last year and concluded that the hydrogen-related sector is primarily developing rapidly but that there are deficits in meeting certain market needs. This analysis showed that the product H2PS-5 offered by Metacon should provide a good fit for this market segment in Germany and close existing gaps.
Dr Christian Hofmann, Managing Director of Metacon GmbH, said, “We are very glad to have found in BH4 a sales partner for Germany that, in addition to its many years of experience in the field of CHP and fuel cells, also has an extensive sales and established service network.”
Mr Wolfgang Balthasar, Sales Director, B4H, commented, “We already have an established distributor in Germany for products in very relevant areas. Thus, we trust our capability to sell and support these products, and we also see that they fill a gap and meet an important need in our market.”
