Pathway to a Competitive European Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration Market
PACE is a five-year project that will deploy more than 2,800 of the next generation Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration units in 10 European countries by 2021.
What is PACE?
The project brings together the five leading European suppliers (BDR Thermea, Bosch, SOLIDpower, Sunfire and Viessmann), and will focus on customer homes and small enterprises.
Manufacturers are supported by four partners – utilities, associations, consultancies, and research community – providing specific expertise (COGEN Europe, Danish Technical University, Element Energy and Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts).
PACE is a new € 90 million public-private project co-funded by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking (FCH JU).

Sign our Joint Declaration on Stationary Fuel Cells for Green Buildings
Stationary Fuel Cells have a great potential to decarbonise the buildings sector and contribute to the EU’s climate and energy objectives. To maximise the decarbonisation potential of Stationary Fuel Cells we need sound and ambitious policies at European, national and local level, together with a commitment from industry. Read and sign our joint declaration if you support the development of Stationary Fuel Cells for a more climate ambitious Europe!
What is Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration?
Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration is a technology that allows you to produce heat and electricity for a small business or house from a single fuel. First, the fuel is transformed into hydrogen and the fuel cell uses this hydrogen to generate electricity and heat. Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration units are designed to meet the electrical, space heating and hot water demands of a building.
Discover via the video below how Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration works and which benefits it brings to your house or small business!
