For the third year in a row, the FCH JU took part in the Hannover Fair from 13 to 17 April.  The ene.field project featured on the public panel and technical presentations, and showed how steady progress is being made in the deployment of fuel cell micro CHP in Europe.

The Hannover Fair is the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology.  The ene.field project is the largest European demonstration of the latest smart energy solution for private homes, micro-CHP. The ene.field project has been presented during the Public and Technical Forum on Wednesday 15 April, during which the intermediary results of the ene.field project have been highlighted and a panel discussion on stationary fuel cells took place. On Thursday 16 April the FCH JU organised a specific “Energy Day”, during which the FCH JU stand was dedicated to micro-CHP and the ene.field project in particular. The panel was well attended and also the FCH JU stand dedicated to ene.field was frequently visited by a host of interested parties.

During the panel debate, President of the FCH JU Bert de Colvenaer said that:

 “by funding the ene.field project, European policy makers have taken a concrete step towards commercialisation of stationary fuel cells.”

The results of the project presented at the Technical Forum by Ian Walker of Element Energy confirm that ene.field, co-funded by the European Commission’s Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH-JU), is steadily moving forward in creating a market for state of the art technology in the field of energy and stationary fuel cells.
