The main project objective is to create the foundations for commercialising an automotive derivative fuel cell system in the 50 to 100 kWe range, for combined heat and power (CHP) in commercial and industrial buildings.

More specifically, the present project has the following objectives:

  • To develop system components allowing reduced costs, increased durability and efficiency and, ultimately, allowing the levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) to reach grid parity

  • To build and validate a first 50 kWe PEM prototype CHP system

  • To create the required value chain from automotive manufacturers to stationary energy end-users
