AFCC is a joint-venture between Daimler and Ford Motor Company. AFCC also works closely with fuel cell systems developer NuCellSys GmbH and Daimler’s fuel cell stack manufacturing group at Mercedes-Benz Fuel Cells, co-located with AFCC in Burnaby, BC.
Automotive fuel cells are currently one of the most viable technologies capable of achieving a significant long-term reduction in carbon dioxide emissions from motor vehicles and relieving us from our dependence on oil.
By providing the best balance of cost, performance, robustness and durability available, AFCC’s goal is to make the automotive fuel cell an affordable and reliable zero-emission solution in the 2017 timeframe.
Rising energy demand and transportation use leading to increased greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are driving demand for cleaner vehicles.
Several alternative power technologies reduce GHG emissions, however the fuel cell provides the best long-term solution to achieve global climate change targets and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.
As the birthplace of the automotive fuel cell, British Columbia is the natural home for AFCC due to the large concentration of fuel cell experts in the area and the province’s commitment to fuel cell research and innovation.
AFCC employs over 200 people committed to the commercialization of this technology in automotive applications.
At AFCC we are committed to delivering a commercially viable fuel cell stack for zero emission vehicles.
AFCC offers challenging opportunities across all areas of our company for both experienced professionals and recent graduates. AFCC actively recruits the best talent in the industry.
