NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / November 14, 2022 / TECO 2030 ASA (Oslo Stock Exchange:TECO)(OTCQX:TECFF) is pleased to announce that it has accepted an NOK 100 million investment from SunHydrogen, Inc. (HYSR).
A US-based company, SunHydrogen is the developer of a breakthrough technology to make renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water. Currently in development, SunHydrogen’s technology utilizes a nanoparticle-based approach in which billions of microscopic nanoparticles split apart water at the molecular level into oxygen and green hydrogen.
Because SunHydrogen’s technology directly uses the electrical charges created by sunlight to generate hydrogen, the Company’s nanoparticle technology does not rely on grid power or require costly power electronics. Additionally, SunHydrogen’s planned scalable system configuration of many individual hydrogen-generating panels ensures redundancy and stability.
Through its cooperation with SunHydrogen, TECO 2030 will look to bolster its international visibility, specifically in the US, and further its zero emission fuel cell projects around the world.
TECO 2030 is currently accelerating the transition to renewable fuels by developing and building Europe’s first gigafactory of hydrogen PEM fuel cell stacks for medium to heavy-duty trucks and PEM fuel cell modules for maritime applications.
Following the investment, SunHydrogen will be invited for one board position on TECO 2030’s board of directors. As part of the investment, the two parties agree to further regulate their joint intention to pursue a potential business combination through which an up-listing of the investor on a US exchange will be explored.
“I am pleased to announce this strategic investment by SunHydrogen which will give us more visibility and a strong strategic partner in the US which has very ambitious hydrogen plans,” said TECO 2030’s CEO Tore Enger. “I am looking forward to cooperating with SunHydrogen on our mission toward zero emission fuel cell projects,” Mr. Enger added.
“SunHydrogen believes strongly in TECO 2030’s mission,” said SunHydrogen’s CEO Tim Young. “We are committed to furthering the green hydrogen economy, and through our cooperation with TECO 2030, we believe our companies can make a significant impact in a fast-growing market that Goldman Sachs estimates to be worth $12 trillion by 2050.”

About SunHydrogen, Inc.
SunHydrogen is developing a breakthrough, low-cost technology to make renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, including seawater and wastewater. The only byproduct of hydrogen fuel is pure water, unlike hydrocarbon fuels such as oil, coal and natural gas that release carbon dioxide and other contaminants into the atmosphere when used. By optimizing the science of water electrolysis at the nano-level, our low-cost nanoparticles mimic photosynthesis to efficiently use sunlight to separate hydrogen from water, ultimately producing environmentally friendly renewable hydrogen. Using our low-cost method to produce renewable hydrogen, we intend to enable a world of distributed hydrogen production for renewable electricity and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
