Fuel cells and hydrogen technologies are key for a decarbonised and sustainable transport system and offer great advantages for automotive applications. In addition to their environmental benefits, fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) offer 2 major assets: a long-range and short refuelling times.

To support and accelerate the market-entry of these vehicles, the FCH JU research activities aim at reducing the production costs of fuel cell systems, while increasing their lifetime to levels competitive with conventional technologies.

Universities and research centers represent an important segment of the FCH JU programme. To accelerate commercialisation of innovative products, the FCH JU brings together research, industry partners and public actors  in order to align the European R&D community.

Fostering exchanges amongst the different partners is essential to bring products from laboratories to everyday life and enable the sustainable shift towards clean technologies.

Launch of the Hydrogen Council

Excellent news for the hydrogen and fuel cell community at the beginning of 2017: Thirteen leading energy, transport and industry companies have today launched a global initiative to voice a united vision and long-term ambition for hydrogen to foster the energy transition. The CEOs of the participating companies used the occasion of the World Economic Forum in Davos to kick off this important activity.

Stationary fuel cells are typically used for the simultaneous production of heat and power, running very quietly with high energy efficiency and with reduced environmental impact compared to traditional fossil fuels based devices.

They can serve many applications, e.g. replacing conventional heating systems while also providing electric power, for back-up power systems or for reliable off-grid primary power to homes, businesses, telecommunication networks, utilities.

The FCH JU is pleased to announce the publication of its new 2017 call for proposals.

The opening of a new call for proposals translates the core mission of the FCH JU into a key action, adding a stepping stone into the path towards accelerating commercialisation of fuel cells and hydrogen technologies.

The 2017 call for proposals is available with a funding of 116 million €, with total of 24 topics, including 7 for transport, 12 for energy and 5 for cross-cutting.
