Key Objectives of the Project

• analyse the European electricity grids with respect to energy efficiency, fuel use, emissions, etc.
• collate EU energy policies and identify the role of stationary fuel cells in contributing to the fulfilment of EU goals in the context of the various electricity and heat supply structures
• compile state of the art and best practice data in conventional power supply technology (central and CHP) as reference data
• establish technical and economic targets and benchmarks for the application of fuel cells in stationary power generation as a function of electricity grid topology, characteristics and rating (1 kW to 1 MW …)
• evaluate current fuel cell and conventional technology developments towards their potential to achieve these targets, identify R&D gaps and formulate further development priorities
• discuss findings with relevant stakeholders, end users and the EU / FCH JU
