About us

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. By burning fossil, finite raw materials the earth heats up visibly. This makes the energy turnaround indispensable. The Paris climate protection agreement of 2015 envisages limiting the global temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius if possible.

Proton Motor Fuel Cell GmbH recognized the urgency of energy storage and resulting alternative energy carriers and sources early on. Already since 1998, it has been brilliantly fulfilling its pioneering role in the development and implementation of CleanTech innovations for an energetic circular economy.

"Made in Germany" quality

To combat climate change, the Proton Motor team wants to help shape the world of tomorrow today by means of regenerative energy solutions in the stationary and mobility sectors. By producing and launching emission-free hydrogen fuel cells with Made in Germany quality, we are paving the way to the green future.

The daily motivation of our employees is to offer customers sustainable hydrogen fuel cell brand products that are always one step ahead of the times and at the same time synchronized with the order. Hydrogen represents a significant factor in the success of climate neutrality, with climate-friendly transformation embedded in the challenge of energy dependence. Proton Motor assesses the associated strengthening of hydrogen in this regard as instrumental in achieving the climate targets.
