The objective of this project is to develop a low-cost fuel cell for portable direct methanol or direct ethanol fuel cells.
The challenge is to have efficient operation at very low temperatures and costs.
These devices could be used for micro power applications (e.g. mobile phones, laptops), or for portable power (e.g. leisure equipment, power tools, etc.).
This project will use the latest materials and production processes to develop and test an innovative high-temperature electrolyser for efficient and low-cost production of hydrogen, using planar solid oxide electrochemical conversion technologies.
This project investigates the possibility of reforming bio-ethanol to produce hydrogen on-board a vehicle.
This thematic network brings together stakeholders to propose a European hydrogen road map identifying transition strategies for moving from today’s fossil-based energy systems to future sustainable energy systems, based largely on electricity and hydrogen. This initiative has led to the HYWAYS project which is conducting an in-depth techno-socio-economic analysis of hydrogen production options.
The European Integrated Hydrogen Project is a 20-partner pre-normative RTD project dealing with global harmonisation of EU regulations for liquid and compressed gaseous hydrogen-fuelled vehicles, and for the necessary refuelling infrastructure.
This Network of Excellence brings together key industrial companies and research organisations to collaborate on research across a broad range of hydrogen safety issues for hydrogen vehicles and infrastructures.
This cluster of nine projects is setting component and system requirements for fuel cell vehicles. Within the cluster, there are projects developing fuel processors (e.g. gasoline, methanol, ethanol) as well as key components for fuel cell systems.
This project, driven by major European car manufacturers and hydrogen suppliers, aims to develop robust, safe and efficient on-board hydrogen storage systems, suitable for use in hydrogen-powered fuel cell or internal combustion engine vehicles.
This is the largest demonstration project worldwide involving a fleet of fuel-cell-powered buses. Nine European cities are running 27 such buses on a regular service for two years, combining novel systems for hydrogen production, storage and supply. This is being complemented by the ECTOS project in Iceland.
