Through its partnership with Dutch company Eleqtec, Electriq~Global’s water-based fuel is expanding to the Netherlands to power eMobility solutions in 2020.
Australian-Israeli company Electriq~Global and Dutch company Eleqtec have entered into an agreement to launch Electriq~Global’s water-based fuel technology in the Netherlands. Together they plan to launch Electriq~Fuel’s recycling plants, and introduce eMobility applications for trucks, barges and mobile generators.
The progressive Dutch market is moving to adopt zero-emission mobility solutions and is looking for commercial and economical clean energy applications. Electriq~Fuel consists of 60 percent water and is a cost-efficient alternative to batteries and compressed hydrogen. When compared to green energy storage solutions like lithium-ion batteries or compressed hydrogen, Electriq~Global achieves a greater range at a lower cost. The energy density potential of the technology is up to 15 times that of electric batteries currently in use in electric vehicles.
The result of extensive groundwork, the Electriq / Eleqtec partnership is already in advanced commercialization negotiations with leading Dutch companies. Several demonstration and prototyping projects are expected to be launched in 2020.
“Electriq~Global is excited to bring our safe, zero-emission, recyclable fuel to the Dutch market” said Electriq~Global CEO Guy N. Michrowski. “It is pleasing to see a nation determined to achieve sustainable and zero-emission economy. With Eleqtec’s support, we expect first products based on our technology, made by Dutch partners, delivered in 2020.”
Eleqtec Chairman Mecx Kooij, added that Electriq~Global’s technology is the link that the sustainable economy was missing, and joining forces with Electriq in bringing it to fruition is highly motivating. The solution solves issues with regards to storage and transport of energy, supports current initiatives and introduces a cost-efficient fuel.
Electriq~Global was founded in 2014 after break-throughs in water based fuel technology by its founder Dr Alex Silberman. Supported by the Israeli government’s Startup Nation’s incubation program. The startup is funded by investors and is now partnering to roll out its technology globally.
Eleqtec is a Dutch start-up company founded in 2017 and incorporated in 2018. Eleqtec focuses its efforts on assembling a coalition of energy transition stakeholders that stand to benefit from and are interested to apply Electriq~Global's technology.
