FutureE and Acta sign supply agreement for Jupiter electrolysers


Acta S.p.A. (AIM: ACTA), the clean energy products company, is pleased to announce that it has signed a five-year non-exclusive supply agreement with FutureE Fuel Cell Solutions GmbH (“FutureE”) for Jupiter electrolysers based on Acta’s low-cost EL500 series electrolysers. The hydrogen generators from Acta are to be integrated into FutureE’s fuel cell and electrolyser system, Jupiter Independence, for back-up and off-grid power.


Under the terms of the agreement, FutureE has appointed Acta as its preferred supplier for electrolysers in its products and solutions.  The total sales value over the five year contract period is expected to be in excess of €3,000,000.


Acta has incorporated a number of modifications to the EL500 to meet the specific requirements of FutureE’s Jupiter Independence system. Integrating Acta’s hydrogen generating technology into FutureE’s system dramatically reduces costs therefore making commercial adoption viable for telecoms and other applications worldwide.


FutureE is a leader in the supply of fuel cell systems for back-up and off-grid power.   FutureE’s flagship product, Jupiter Independence, is an award winning system which combines fuel cell, electrolyser, energy management, hydrogen storage and water tank all in one housing.


To allow combination with off-grid renewable energy sources, the Jupiter Independence system currently employs a platinum-based electrolyser.  FutureE approached Acta looking for an electrolyser with substantially reduced cost and increased performance to achieve a significant improvement in cost-effectiveness.



Paolo Bert, Chief Executive of Acta commented: “Acta is delighted with the interest from FutureE in our electrolyser products. It further demonstrates the increasing demand in the market for low cost electrolyser technology which produces clean and dry hydrogen and more importantly, illustrates that Acta has become a key player in this market.”


Mark-Uwe Osswald, Founder and Managing Director of FutureE commented: “Market interest in high efficient fuel cell back-up and off-grid systems with low operation and maintenance cost is significantly growing, particularly from the telecoms sector as demand for Jupiter Independence systems reflects. Being able to incorporate Acta’s low cost, safe and efficient electrolyser into FutureE’s system will speed up the market introduction of our combined fuel cell and electrolyser system. We look forward to working with Acta on commercializing Jupiter Independence.”
