Unmanned and autonomous technology developer Edge Autonomy has acquired Adaptive Energy, which designs and manufactures solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) for backup, off grid and UAV power.

With more than two decades of fuel cell manufacturing expertise and nearly 2,000 SOFC systems deployed worldwide, Adaptive Energy is a leading provider of SOFC for low-watt power.

Adaptive Energy’s lightweight, energy dense SOFC have been integrated in Edge Autonomy’s UAV platforms for more than 10 years.


“Having used Adaptive Energy’s SOFCs for years, we know first-hand the value the team will bring to Edge Autonomy and our customers,” said John Purvis, CEO of Edge Autonomy.

“Adaptive Energy has done an impressive job investing in R&D, and we plan to leverage the company’s technology and research as we look to find new ways to further extend the duration and improve the performance of our autonomous systems. I look forward to working with the Adaptive Energy team as we continue to innovate together.”
