Energy Technologies, Inc. (ETI) has installed a Laser Welding Machine from Genesis Automation which will be used to develop a High-Volume Manufacturing Process for Metal Hydride Fuel Cell (MHFC) Stacks and Systems as part of the company's expanding Ultimate Fuel Cells division.
ETI was awarded a state grant of One Million Dollars to continue development of fuel cell technologies. The grant is awarded through the Ohio Third Frontier Fuel Cell Program for the advancement of fuel cell research and production in Ohio. These grants are expected to create many high tech jobs statewide.
