EU ene.field project demonstrates that Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration is technologically ready to contribute to Europe’s energy and climate objectives

Europe’s largest field trial of Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration to date, the ene.field project (2012-2017), concludes that this home energy unit deserves a place in the line-up of key energy solutions for the future energy system.

Over the past five years, the EU’s co-funded ene.field project successfully deployed and monitored over 1,000 new installations of residential Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration, having registered more than 5.5 million hours of reliable operation across 10 key European countries. Evidence collected as part of the trial shows that fuel cell micro-cogeneration has significant decarbonisation, energy savings and grid stability benefits. Moreover, over 90% of the surveyed trial participants are pleased with the environmental performance, the comfort and warmth, and running costs of their Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration unit. ene.field represents a step change in the volume of fuel cell deployment for this sector in each country. By learning about the practical implications of installing, operating and supporting a fleet of fuel cells with real world customers, ene.field has demonstrated the environmental and economic imperative of Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration and laid the foundations for market exploitation.

With the project coming to an end, the main ene.field results have been collected and the final reports are available.

For these and more ene.field results, check out the reports published on the ene.field website.
