Estrel Convention Center, Berlin, Germany
14:20 - 14:40

Intelligent Energy is built on 30 years of RD&T and in more recent years, the Company has significantly light-weighted its fuel cell technology specifically for the UAV market, enabling commercial UAVs to fly for hours instead of minutes.
In this presentation, I will discuss the business case around the fuel cells and the incredible results from Project Rachel which showcases the potential of our fuel cells on a commercial drone: www.thehydrogendrone.com
