ene.field at the European Union Sustainable Energy Week 2017

During the European Union Sustainable Energy Week 2017 (EUSEW17), COGEN Europe organised a debate on new business models enabling the adoption of innovative technologies by households and small businesses while overcoming barriers for early market entry. Representatives from both industry and the research community engaged with European policymakers. Key findings from the ene.field and PACE EU co-funded projects were presented, as well as insights from an ongoing study on business models for stationary fuel cells. After the debate, participants had the opportunity to have a closer look at a Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration unit, kindly provided by ene.field partner SOLIDpower.

The debate was co-organised by the Association of the European Heating Industry, the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking, Hydrogen Europe and the European Association for Hydrogen and fuel cells and Electro-mobility in European Regions.

Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration: Heating and Powering your home

COGEN Europe presented the achievements of the ene.field project at the Speakers’ Corner of the EUSEW17 Networking Village. Furthermore, the objectives of PACE, an EU co-funded project to to build on ene.field success, were shared with the public. Both projects were represented in the Networking Village.

Save the date – ene.field wrap-up event on 11 October!

With ene.field coming to an end and PACE gaining momentum, it is now high time to showcase the contribution of fuel cell micro-Cogeneration to the energy transition. The projects’ partners invite you to take stock of the success of ene.field and to look forward to PACE opening new opportunities for Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration across Europe. The event, including a high level debate on the main findings and conclusions from ene.field, will be organised on 11 October 2017, at Autoworld in Brussels.

More information and registration will follow soon on www.enefield.eu.

Combined Heat and Power as a sustainable enabler for renewable energy

ene.field findings on the macro-economic and environmental benefits of the large scale deployment of micro-Cogeneration, developed by Imperial College London,  were presented during the event CHP as a sustainable enabler for renewable energy on 14 June in Brussels. The event focussed on the role of Cogeneration (CHP) in an energy mix with an increasing share of intermittent renewables between today and 2030, on the road to 2050. The ene.field project contribution helped set the scene, alongside speakers from the European Commission and COGEN Europe, by providing a  EU-wide perspective on the system level benefits of micro-CHP. The event was organised by COGEN Flanders, in collaboration with ene.field and COGEN Europe.


ene.field national workshops in the UK, Germany, France and Luxembourg

The latest ene.field national workshops were organised throughout March and June 2017 in  four key European countries where ene.field units were installed. During the workshops, participants from the fuel cells industry and the research community, as well as EU and national policymakers (including the Energy Commissioner from the Luxembourgish Ministry of Economy) identified the challenges and presented policy recommendations for the large-scale deployment of Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration technologies in the UK, Germany, France and Luxembourg.
