Pathway to a Competitive European Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration Market
What is PACE?
The project brings together the four leading European suppliers (BDR Thermea, Bosch, SOLIDpower and Viessmann), and will focus on customer homes and small enterprises.
Manufacturers are supported by five partners – utilities, associations, consultancies, and research community – providing specific expertise (COGEN, DTU, Element Energy and EWE).
PACE is a new € 90 million public-private project co-funded by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking (FCH JU).
Numbers & Facts
What is Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration?
Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration is a technology that allows you to produce heat and electricity for a house or small business 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.
