At the heart of our technology is our Solid Oxide Cell - HotBox.


The intellectual property behind the technology uses electrochemical conversion to produce:
Zero emission electricity directly from oxidizing a fuel (Fuel Cell mode), or
Green hydrogen from renewable energy sources (Electrolyser mode) when set in reverse.

Solid Oxide CellBOX

Direct Energy’s HotBox builds on more than ten years of funded R&D at University of Queensland, combined with a highly experienced team of industrial engineers, who are specialists in Solid Oxide Cell (“SOC”) design and manufacture.
