It not only meets the national energy strategy direction, but also meets the market development. It is the government's urgently needed pioneer in the field of fuel cells.



 2016 - March : " Working with DongFeng " 

Palcan Energy Corporation and DonFeng (Largest delvery goods vehicle manufacturer and 2nd largest car manufacturer in China), have joined efforts to fulfill the Chinese Government mandate to develop clean energy vehicles.

DongFeng Electric Delivery Goods Vehicle is using now Palcan technology "Methanol FC-EV, "The greatest combination in transportation industry". With 20 years experience in Fuel Cell and Hydrogen technologies, Palcan has a deep and wide knowledge and understanding of the EV Industry, which makes Palcan as a master in FC-EV industry to provide suitable solution in North America, Europe and China who collectively are playing a major role to create a greener world.

The FC-EV is combination preference of the Chinese automobile industry's to meet the EV challenges; mileage limitation, costly charging station infrastructure, long recharging time, short life cycle and heavy batteries. These challenges are minimized with Palcan's methanol FC-EV.

Advantages: Self recharges EV batteries directly, minimal refuelling time of 2-3 min (Methanol 60% + Water 40%), low charging helps extend battery life and also reduce of batteries, mileage is extended typically by twice the distance with a standard methanol tank, no need for battery charging stations or H2 Stations.



2015 - November : " Palcan and Skywell build 1st Methanol Fuel Cell-Electric Bus in China"

Palcan Energy Corporation and Skywell Electric Vehicle Company have been working together in depeloping of new concept of Vehicle in China " Methanol Fuel Cell-Electric Vehicle"

Palcan Energy Corporation is the first company to introduce Methanol Fuel Cell Electric powered Vehicle (FC-EV)
to China. China is leading the world to reduce fossil fuel use by mandating that no less than 30% of China's bus fleets
be all electric by 2020.

The EV market is growing and the market will grown even faster with FC-EV as FC-EV deliver advantages that
EV alone don't. The more EV the faster the "shift" from fossil fuels to a cleaner "hydrogen economy". Palcan's
methanol FC-EV is making possible this paradigm shift.
