EUROPEAN INSTITUTIONS

- Fuel cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking - FCH-JU

The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) is a unique public private partnership supporting research, technological development and demonstration (RTD) activities in fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologies in Europe. Its aim is to accelerate the market introduction of these technologies, realising their potential as an instrument in achieving a carbon-lean energy system.
Fuel cells, as an efficient conversion technology, and hydrogen, as a clean energy carrier, have a great potential to help fight carbon dioxide emissions, to reduce dependence on hydrocarbons and to contribute to economic growth. The objective of the FCH JU is to bring these benefits to Europeans through a concentrated effort from all sectors.
The three members of the FCH JU are the European Commission, fuel cell and hydrogen industries represented by the NEW Industry Grouping and the research community represented by Research Grouping N.ERGHY.

EUROPEAN PROJECTS

- INSPIRE - Integration of Novel Stack Components for Performance, Improved DuRability and LowEr Cost

INSPIRE is a three-year research and development project supported by a grant of €7.0 million from Europe’s Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), under Grant Agreement Number 700127, a unique public-private partnership supporting research, technological development and demonstration in the fuel cell and hydrogen energy sectors in Europe.  This industry-led project has an overall aim of bringing together the most advanced critical PEMFC stack components existing today and integrating these into a fuel cell that is capable of delivering on the most challenging of the performance, durability and cost targets required for large-scale automotive fuel cell commercialisation.
The components have already been consistently demonstrated in the laboratory and are being further developed, scaled and integrated into an advanced generation automotive fuel cell stack to demonstrate the application of the technology in an industrially-relevant environment
Consortium members include fuel cell component suppliers, academic institutions and car manufacturer BMW Group.

- Autostack Core - Automotive Fuel Cell Stack Cluster Initiative for Europe II

While the supply base for materials and components in Europe is well advanced and competitive, stack integration is lagging behind due to massive investment requirements and risks associated with commercialization. The project aims to develop approaches to address the critical barriers for substantial improvement of collaboration between major stakeholders and establishing a solid business model for an independent European stack integrator for automotive applications.

- MAESTRO - MembrAnES for STationary application with RObust mechanical properties

Perfluorosulfonic acid ionomers demonstrate excellent properties in terms of chemical resistance in a fuel cell environment. In stationary applications, where the situation of deep MEA dehydration and frequent open circuit voltage events can be reasonably avoided, the most relevant failure mode in extended life time operation is associated with membrane mechanical failure.
The objective of MAESTRO is to improve the mechanical properties of low equivalent weight state of the art perfluorosulfonic acid membranes using chemical, thermal, and processing and filler reinforcement methodologies while maintaining high proton conductivity
