Ceramic Fuel Cells installs BlueGen gas-to-electricity unit at Adelaide Central Market to power electric cars

Ceramic Fuel Cells Limited (AIM/ASX: CFU) - a leading developer of high efficiency and low emission electricity generation units for homes and other buildings - today announced that a BlueGen gas-to-electricity generation unit is installed and operating at Adelaide's Central Market.

The Adelaide City Council and the South Australian Government have installed the BlueGen unit together with an electric vehicle charging station.

This enables city shoppers to recharge their electric vehicles from low emission sources rather than carbon intensive power from the electricity grid. The new station, located in the Central Market carpark, is free to users and can charge two vehicles at a time.

This is the first BlueGen unit installed in South Australia. The Central Market, in Gouger Street, Adelaide, is owned and run by the Adelaide City Council and has more than 80 stalls. It is South Australia's most visited tourist attraction.

"We are excited to have a BlueGen unit at Adelaide Central Market and we are thrilled that the Capital City Committee has recognised BlueGen's potential to power electric cars," said Ceramic Fuel Cells Managing Director Brendan Dow. "BlueGen is an ideal companion technology to electric vehicles."

Adelaide Lord Mayor Stephen Yarwood said he believed the BlueGen installation was a world first - a public charging station powered by an innovative Australian-developed fuel cell.

"This initiative reinforces the City of Adelaide's role as a leader in environmental sustainability and new technology," he said. "This project is a sign of things to come as we move towards a cleaner and greener future in our beautiful city."

BlueGen units use patented fuel cell technology to convert natural gas into electricity with very high efficiency. Over a year, each BlueGen can produce twice the electricity needed to power an average Australian home, with the excess power exported to the power grid. BlueGen also produces enough heat to meet the average home's daily needs for hot water.
