Extreme E brings in Kaizen Clean Energy for hydrogen microgrid solution

KCE named official clean energy technology provider.

Electric racing series Extreme E has announced Kaizen Clean Energy (KCE) as its official clean energy technology provider starting in 2023.

KCE will support Enowa, the energy, water and hydrogen subsidiary of Neom and green hydrogen power partner to Extreme E, in delivering a hydrogen microgrid solution to the championship.

“Extreme E required a mobile clean energy solution that could be transported easily on the St Helena and deployed at our races in remote locations,” said Alejandro Agag, founder and chief executive of Extreme E. 

“Kaizen Clean Energy’s system is perfectly aligned with Extreme E’s needs. Their unique hydrogen production and purification technology will enable Extreme E to charge its race fleet and support the series’ goals to take its entire event operations power off grid with 100 per cent carbon neutral hydrogen energy – which will be a first in motorsport.”

KCE will be manufacturing, integrating, and deploying their hydrogen production systems from its facility in Texas for use in microgrid power, hydrogen fueling, and industrial hydrogen supply starting in the first quarter of 2023.

Robert Meaney, co-founder of KCE, added: “We are thrilled to partner with Extreme E to help charge their fleet and power their event operations using locally generated 100% clean energy.

“KCE is committed to supporting Extreme E’s vision for an equitable and environmentally beneficial racing series using our microgrid technology to provide safe, economically viable, and logistically friendly method for off grid hydrogen infrastructure.”
