International register of stack-component suppliers

The global register of stack component suppliers starts! Join the register! An initiative of the VDMA Fuel Cell Working Group to develop a strong fuel cell industry.

Background of this initiative is to create a world-wide register of stack-component suppliers – with minimal work load for VDMA and suppliers. Therefore simple Excel-sheets were created, that can be easily filled out. The information of these Excel-Files will be used to create one page for every supplier.

This register will be free of charge for the suppliers and will be distributed free of charge. The register will focus on the following types of fuel cells:

  • DMFC: Direct methanol fuel cell
  • LT-PEM: Low temperature PEM
  • HT-PEM: High temperature PEM


How to participate in this project

In the download area below this article you can find the current supplier register, which shows exemplary first pre-collected entries. Responses to the directory are updated on a regular basis. Furthermore you will find there an Excel-File for every component, where you can enter your information and a detailed guideline how to fill out this Excel-File.

After filling out the Excel-File please sent it to: We will create your part of the document and send it to you for release.

After the release your input will be published.
