Identification of legal-administrative barriers for the installation and operation of key FCH technologies / 2016-05-03

2016 fondos y socioesLegal-administrative barriers are among the obstacles currently impeding a quicker deployment of fuel cell and hydrogen (FCH) technologies. These barriers, which often reflect a lack of awareness and/or acknowledgement of the key features of FCH technologies within national legal codes and local planning by-laws, along with additional bureaucracy and complex sets of procedures and requirements, can significantly hamper FCH installation and operational processes.

Novel education and training tools / 2016-05-03

2016 fondos y socioesEducation and training in the fuel cells and hydrogen sector is critical for the current and future workforce and thereby supports indirectly the commercialisation of the technology. Knowledgeable and capable workforce that understands the functioning of both technology and underlying fundamental processes, but knows also about obstacles and technological restrictions, is essential for successful development, planning and implementation of FCH plant and system technology. Apart from conventional education and training methods, education and training on FCH technology and its fundamental processes should turn towards digital based e-education and e-training methods, which become more and more used fruitful and successful in modern education methods.

Development of innovative hydrogen purification technology based on membrane systems / 2016-05-03

2016 fondos y socioesEach year about 50 M ton of hydrogen is produced in majority at refineries by steam methane reforming. Most of it is purified using large pressure swing absorption systems. For a continuous flow of pure hydrogen, multiple units are required, operating in out-of-phase duty cycles, demanding a substantial investment for refineries and producing a waste fraction, normally used for heat generation. Especially at lower scale, PSA systems are not meeting cost targets (CAPEX & OPEX). For new hydrogen production methods without heat demand like biomass fermentation and for hydrogen from industrial hydrogen pipelines and underground caverns, innovative and lean hydrogen purification technologies, alternative to conventional purification technologies like PSA or cryogenic evaporation are needed.

Large scale demonstration of commercial fuel cells in the power range of 100-400kW in different market applications / 2016-05-03

2016 fondos y socioesThe electrical demand in the European countries is estimated to increase to be three times the level of the year 2000 by 2020. Utility companies are facing already increasing difficulties to accommodate escalating power demands and fluctuating loads from renewable electricity sources. The main challenges to be addressed are: The need for distributed power production for commercial and industrial applications for base load and redundant energy supply and as a supporting alternative to conventional central power plants. Need for high energy efficiency and reduction of emissions, because the alternative power supply for these applications is mostly emitting high amount of CO2, noise and other emission The need for flexible power solutions supporting the further integration of renewable energy in the energy system Increase of energy efficiency and power security The Roland Berger study “Advancing Europe’s energy systems: Stationary fuel cells in distributed generations” (2015)

Horizon Prize – Materials for Clean Air / 2018-01-23

2016 fondos y socioesIn the European Union, the average life expectancy is estimated to be decreased by 8.6 months, because of exposure to particulate matter resulting from human activities. The inhalation of particulate matter can also lead to adverse effects in the respiratory, cardiovascular, immune, and neural systems. In addition to its effects on the human health, particulate matter can also have adverse effects on climate change and ecosystems. The Horizon Prize on materials for clean air is a €3 million prize that will be awarded to the person or team who can most effectively meet the following challenge: develop the best innovative design-driven material solution to reduce the concentration of particulate matter in urban areas.
