The Auto-Stack CORE network is composed of 14 organizations, including original-equipment manufacturers (OEMs), automotive suppliers, and research institutions. Each of the organizations participating in the coalition, including Dana, offers valuable expertise in a range of fuel-cell capacities. The project launched in 2013 with the companies collaborating to develop best-in-class automotive fuel stack hardware.
Dana's most significant contribution to the project, optimized metallic bipolar plates, has assisted the coalition in developing a stack that achieves improved power density and performance than a traditional stack, while reducing the overall cost. The next step will be to enhance each component and ultimately develop a fuel-cell stack architecture ready for production. The project is expected to be completed with production-capable components in 2016.
While in pursuit of making fuel-cells safer, more durable, and capable of increased performance, Dana and the Auto-Stack CORE coalition also are working to provide a more cost-effective solution. As a world leader in the development and manufacture of fuel-cell stack components, reducing the costs associated with fuel-cell technology has been a key focus for Dana, as the company hopes to lower this barrier to more widespread adoption of fuel-cell vehicles.
