Hydrogen Week: Birmingham workshop on ‘Pathways in the UK to a low carbon future’

13th March 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Fuel Cell mCHP: Pathways in the UK to a low carbon future

Attendance to this ene.field workshop is free, and participating in the ene.field workshop also entitles you to a special rate of £195 for the Hydrogen & Fuel Cells into the Mainstream Conference (see below for registration details)

The ene.field project partners are pleased to invite you to learn more about Fuel Cell micro-combined heat and power (FC mCHP), first-hand from manufacturers. FC mCHP solutions are ready to enter people’s homes, enabling consumers to efficiently produce their own heat and power, and thus reducing their energy bills and environmental footprint. In order to realise the potential of FC mCHP, there is a need for a clear vision on policy and market development at both EU and national levels. This will ensure that innovative European manufacturers can bring product costs down, and reach mass commercialisation by scaling up production.

The aim of this workshop is to inform participants of the ene.field project findings and of the potential of FC mCHP technologies for enabling energy transition in the United Kingdom. This is the fourth of a series of national workshops that will present project findings in different markets across Europe. The ene.field workshop will be held as part of the UK Hydrogen Week and will take place the day before the main ’Hydrogen & Fuel Cells into the Mainstream’ Conference. Ideas and inputs will be collected from the audience (local policy-makers, academics, industries, DSO, ESCOs, utilities, operators and end-users), with a view to address the challenges for a deployment of fuel cell micro-CHP technologies in the UK.

A number of European manufacturers have now reached the point where the technical challenges of residential FC mCHP are resolved in small field trials and there is already some progress on scaling up towards mass manufacture with large deployment projects, such as Callux (Germany), ene.field and more recently PACE (EU). The last two, co-funded by the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), have embarked on an ambitious programme to install and monitor thousands of FC mCHP units under different climate conditions throughout Europe.
