AbstractThe successful commercialisation of any new technology is inherently dependent on its ability to compete head-to-head with incumbent product. In pursuit of price parity, the fuel cell industry has historically focused on reducing unit cost, increasing durability and longevity, and volume production. While these are all important, many fuel cell developers have yet to address the exorbitant costs and time-consuming processes required to develop new applications which ultimately encumber profitability, sway allocation decisions, and influence which markets to pursue. This article outlines a radical approach that can dramatically lower the total cost burden of product development, as well as reduce fuel cell unit cost and improve longevity and durability, enabling a more economical path to fuel cell product commercialisation.
