Anuvu Inc. (Sacramento, CA) and Kettering University (Flint, MI) have agreed to jointly develop fuel cell technologies for transportation, and will hold a series of educational seminars to instruct end users on the uses of appropriate design considerations for fuel cells in transportation applications.
In addition, the four-phase program includes a provision for Avunu to provide fuel cells to Kettering for its in-house research and teaching needs. Another phase of the program will involve the use of Anuvu fuel cells to convert an EV-1 to fuel cell power. Finally, the fourth phase of the multi-year program will result in the design of a leading-edge, fuel-cell-powered automobile incorporating the most advanced technologies and design tools available.
According to Rex Hodge, president of Anuvu Fuel Cell Products, "We recognize that Kettering University is one of the foremost training and educational facilities for automotive engineers in the world. They are renowned for the quality of their engineering graduates and the depth of their advanced research capability. We look forward to working with them to fulfill the laudable objectives of our agreement."
