Solid Oxide Fuel Cells
Gathered here are notable reports and resources collated from across the hydrogen and fuel cell sector.
H2FC SUPERGEN are pleased to launch the UK’S first Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Research Capability Document.
This document aims to share capabilities and skills across the UK’s academic hydrogen and fuel cell research landscape.
Nearly 70 UK-based academics have contributed to this document. We hope that academics, industry and government, both in the UK and further afield, find this document useful and that it stimulates further collaboration.
In line with the ethos of H2FC SUPERGEN, we aim for the document to be as inclusive as possible, so if you are a UK-based academic working in the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell field and would like to be included, please contact Dr Zeynep Kurban at email@example.com.

The fuel cell ‘industry’ continues to grow, according to the numbers. We think the supply chain is starting to solidify, though it is far from robust, and much of the policy environment is positive. But the industry remains small, fragile, and almost entirely driven by government support.

Lead author: Northern Gas Networks
The H21 Leeds City Gate project is a study with the aim of determining the feasibility, from both a technical and economic viewpoint, of converting the existing natural gas network in Leeds, one of the largest UK cities, to 100% hydrogen. The project has shown that the gas network has the correct capacity for such a conversion and the existing heat demand for Leeds can be met using technology in use around the world today.

Lead author: 4th Energy Wave
This second edition of the 4th Energy Wave Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Annual Review takes an analytical lookat the development of both industries during 2014. Since the data has been gathered from primary interviewing of producers andmanufacturers, the 4th Energy Wave Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Annual Review contains the only nonestimated global dataset in the world.
This guide is aimed at Hydrogen Refuelling Station installers and was developed as part of the Innovate UK-supported London Hydrogen Network Expansion project, through which London’s second publicly accessible HRS was installed in early 2015. While this document focuses on the UK, references to guidance for other markets are also provided. This guide aims to provide recommendations for successfully installing customer-focused hydrogen refuelling stations.

The present study outlines a pathway for commercialising stationary fuel cells in Europe. It produces acomprehensive account of the current and future market potential for fuel cell distributed energygeneration in Europe, benchmarks stationary fuel cell technologies against competing conventional technologies in a variety of use cases and assesses potential business models for commercialisation.
Lead author: The Committee on Climate Change
This technical report accompanies the Fifth Carbon Budget – The next step towards a low-carbon economy, the Committee’s published advice on the level of the fifth carbon budget. New infrastructures will be required to support the deployment of low-carbon technologies. As well as CO2 infrastructure, development of heat networks and electric vehicle charging networks will be required, and potentially infrastructure for hydrogen applications.
