Expected socio and economic impact

The project will supply
- a quantifiable technical understanding of the interaction of stationary fuel cell technology with various European electricity supply grids with respect to greenhouse gas abatement and improved economy of fuel,
- associated benchmarks and indicators suitable to describe the superiority (or inferiority) of specific fuel cell concepts vis à vis competing technologies with respect to efficiency, emissions, economic and operational data etc.,
- targets for fuel cell development and criteria for the selection of best performing project proposals, and
- status reports on the development status of stationary fuel cells and the technology gaps that remain to be shut, along with indications for the focus of future development work.

Achievements/Results to date
The cataloguing and benchmarking data have been compiled and the development of the methodology of technology comparison is under way.
