ene.field

Objectives The objectives of this project are to promote practical learning, the demonstration of market potential, segmentation, and the cost and environmental benefits of micro FC-CHP while developing market-oriented  product specifications and harmonised codes  and standards. Additionally, we seek to set up a more mature supply chain, ready for the deployment of micro FC-CHP in 12 Member States, provide evidence base on a cost and environmental analysis that can be used to accelerate policy support from governments and a market adoption by several channels. Impact To...

EURECA

Objectives EURECA is developing the next generation of micro combined Heat-and-Power (µ-CHP) systems based on advanced PEM stack technology to overcome the disadvantages of complex gas purification, gas humidification and low temperature gradients for heat exchangers with operating temperatures of 90 to 120°C. The main outcome is a less complicated, highly efficient, and therefore a robust µ-CHP system with reduced cost, meaning that the consortium is well balanced along the supply chain. Achievements to date A public website has been designed and is available at: www.project-eureca....

EVOLVE

Objectives EVOLVE aims at the development, the up-scaling and the demonstration of new SOFC architecture for mobile applications. This architecture, based on a composite anode substrate that is tolerant towards redox cycles aims at combining the benefits of both existing Anode and Metal supported cell architecture and limiting the issue of carbon coking and sulphur tolerance as a result of improved anode materials. Impact This concept is expected to offer a performance level comparable to main stream commercial anode supported cells with enhanced robustness and durability. Due to...

METSAPP

Key Objectives of the project Most SOFC demonstrations with ceramic cells in real system operation have until now revealed problems regarding reliability issues. Attention to reliability and robustness has especially been paid in connection with SOFC technology for mobile application. Modelling studies as well as recent practical experience has proved how up-scaling of cells and stacks to larger more industrially relevant sizes generally leads to lower reliability in real system operation and intolerance towards system abuse and operation failures. The aim of the METSAPP project is to...

METPROCELL

METPROCELL Logo
Key Objectives of the project METPROCELL´s aim is to develop innovative Proton Conducting Fuel Cells (PCFCs) by using new electrolytes and electrode materials and implementing cost effective fabrication routes. Following a complementary approach, the cell architecture will be optimised on both metal and anode supports, with the aim of improving the performance, durability and cost effectiveness of the cells. Specific objectives: Development of electrolytes (e.g. BTi02, BCY10/BCY10) and electrodes (e.g. NiO-BIT02 and NiO-BCY10/BCY10 anodes) with enhanced properties for...

MMLCR=SOFC

Key Objectives of the project The project addresses a novel design solution for lightweight SOFC stacks that decouples the thermal stresses within the stack and at the same time allows optimal sealing and contacting. In this way the capability for thermal cycling is enhanced and degradation of contacting reduced. The design is highly suitable for industrial manufacturing and automated assembly. The industrial partners will build up the necessary tools and appliances for low cost production of repeating units and the automated quality control, stacking and assembly of stacks....

LASER-CELL

Key Objectives of the project Projected advances in alkaline-fuel-cell technology have the potential to overcome the challenges that have prevented alkaline fuel cells from successfully bridging the technology gap from academic research to widespread, financially-viable deployment until now. Alkaline fuel cells convert hydrogen into electricity and are one of the most efficient energy conversion technologies available today. In contrast to most other fuel cell technologies, alkaline fuel cells do not require expensive precious metals to be used as a catalyst material and most components...
