Logan Energy secures £1 million backing for China joint venture

Clean energy firm Logan Energy has secured £1 million investment from Kelvin Capital to back a hydrogen power joint venture in China.

Edinburgh-based Logan will work with Henan Lanxing Power Equipment Co on plans to cut carbon emissions by pushing hydrogen and fuel cell development. Logan technology uses electrolysis of water to convert electricity from wind, solar, hydro and tidal power into hydrogen, which can then be stored in fuel cells. Its projects in the UK and Europe have used energy cells to power heating and cooling systems in buildings.

The Chinese partnership will create eight new jobs in design, production, servicing and business development.

China is aiming to create a “hydrogen society” to meet climate and pollution goals and hopes hydrogen will account for 10% of its energy use by 2040.
