Pathway to a Competitive European FC mCHP market (PACE)

Start date: Jun 1, 2016, End date: Feb 28, 2021,

... an extended period. This will:- Enable fuel cell mCHP manufacturers to scale up production, using new series techniques, and increased automation. By 2018, four leading European manufacturers (Bosch, SOLIDpower, Vaillant and Viessmann) will have installed capacity for production of over 1,000 units/year (each will install over 500 units in PACE). These production lines will test the manufacturing ...

Solid Oxide Stack Lean Manufacturing (SOSLeM)

Start date: Apr 1, 2016, End date: Mar 31, 2019,

The proposed SOSLeM project will contribute to the call objectives by improving production processes as well as developing and applying novel manufacturing technologies for FC stacks. The improvements proposed by the project will sum up to a reduction of manufacturing costs of about 70%, leading to decreased capital cost of about 2.500 €/kW. Besides these outstanding economical and technical impro ...

Design of 2 Technologies and Applications to Service (D2Service)

Start date: Sep 1, 2015, End date: Aug 31, 2018,

The current “Design to service” project aims at simplifying both, residential and commercial fuel cell systems for easy, fast and save system service and maintenance. In order to make best use of lessons learned and available resources, this project jointly works on two distinguished technologies (PEFC&SOFC) in two different markets (residential & extended UPS). Both SME manufacturers are committe ...

Steel Coatings For Reducing Degradation in SOFC (SCORED 2:0)

Start date: Jul 1, 2013, End date: Jun 30, 2017,

The economic viability and market place entry of SOFC power systems is directly dependent on their longevity and production costs. Adequate operational life spans can only be achieved, if the performance degradation of the SOFC stacks and Balance of Plant components over time can be considerably reduced. At the same time, manufacturing costs have to be lowered dramatically for the specifically nec ...

Solar integrated pressurized high temperature electrolysis (SOPHIA)

Start date: Apr 1, 2014, End date: Mar 31, 2017,

Hydrogen and other fuels are expected to play a key role as energy carrier for the transport sector and as energy buffer for the integration of large amounts of renewable energy into the grid. Therefore the development of carbon lean technologies producing hydrogen at reasonable price from renewable or low CO2 emitting sources like nuclear is of utmost importance. It is the case of water electroly ...

Innovative SOFC Architecture based on Triode Operation (T-CELL)

Start date: Sep 1, 2012, End date: Feb 29, 2016,

"The development of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) operating on hydrocarbon fuels (natural gas, biofuel,LPG) is the key to their short to medium term broad commercialization. The development of direct HC SOFCs still meets lot of challenges and problems arising from the fact that the anode materials operate under severe conditions leading to low activity towards reforming and oxidation reactions, f ...
