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, 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). g
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 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. 5
