The facility in Crawley, Atrium Court, spans almost 34,000 square feet – more than three times the size of its previous premises – with its Hydrogen Innovation Hub a research, development and testing facility dedicated to hydrogen fuel cells, electrolysers and sensors.

In addition, the site can support the development of concepts from R&D phase all the way up to production-ready technology, as well as test fuel cells producing single digit Watts up to multi kW sizes required to service the heaviest of mobility industries.

It is also designed to accommodate Bramble Energy’s growing workforce, which has increased tenfold from eight staff in 2020 to more than 80 today.

Founded as a university spin-out in 2016, Bramble Energy develops fuel cell technology based on printed circuit board (PCB) technology.

In May 2023, it was awarded £12 Million in funding from the Advanced Propulsion Centre to provide its fuel cell technology to a hydrogen bus project.

Dr Tom Mason, Bramble Energy co-founder and CEO, said, “We are extremely proud to move into our new, state-of-the-art headquarters, which represents a major milestone for Bramble Energy.

“Our success and growth has been phenomenal in a very short amount of time, which is in no small part to our technology but also the support we have received and having a talented and dedicated team.

“Our world-leading Hydrogen Innovation Hub at Atrium Court will significantly contribute to levelling up the UK’s hydrogen and fuel cell testing capability. It will play a crucial role in our future development as we revolutionise the shift towards cleaner and sustainable energy solutions.”
