FCH JU Info Day/Brokerage – Practical information


The FCH JU will hold its next Open Info Day & Brokerage Event in Brussels on the Thursday 02 February 2017.

This year's edition will reveal a new format as an important share of the event will be dedicated to fostering networking opportunities and initiate contacts. We would like to provide participants and interested readers with practical information concerning this annual event.

Discover FCH JU 6 new projects boosting pathways for green hydrogen


Production of hydrogen from renewable sources is crucial to enlarge the place of green hydrogen within the energy transition.

The FCH JU funding programme continues placing this item at the core of its activities and has allocated 24.5 M € to improve the different technologies (electrolysis and biogas reforming) and to stimulate market penetration. Capitalizing research for green hydrogen will allow addressing the intermittent character of renewables and harnessing their power, while naturally moving away from fossil energies.

Launch of project JIVE - for a large scale deployment of fuel cell buses in Europe


The 25th of January 2017 marks the launch of a game changing project in sustainable and clean urban transportation in Europe: JIVE, which stands for Joint Initiative for hydrogen Vehicles across Europe.

The project is co-financed by the FCH 2 JU under the European Union - Horizon 2020 framework programme for research and innovation. 

Discover FCH JU new transport projects


Fuel cells and hydrogen technologies are key for a decarbonised and sustainable transport system and offer great advantages for automotive applications. In addition to their environmental benefits, fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) offer 2 major assets: a long-range and short refuelling times.

To support and accelerate the market-entry of these vehicles, the FCH JU research activities aim at reducing the production costs of fuel cell systems, while increasing their lifetime to levels competitive with conventional technologies.

FCH JU at TU Delft


Universities and research centers represent an important segment of the FCH JU programme. To accelerate commercialisation of innovative products, the FCH JU brings together research, industry partners and public actors  in order to align the European R&D community.

Fostering exchanges amongst the different partners is essential to bring products from laboratories to everyday life and enable the sustainable shift towards clean technologies.

Launch of the Hydrogen Council


Excellent news for the hydrogen and fuel cell community at the beginning of 2017: Thirteen leading energy, transport and industry companies have today launched a global initiative to voice a united vision and long-term ambition for hydrogen to foster the energy transition. The CEOs of the participating companies used the occasion of the World Economic Forum in Davos to kick off this important activity.

Discover FCH JU new research projects boosting the potential of stationary fuel cells

Stationary fuel cells are typically used for the simultaneous production of heat and power, running very quietly with high energy efficiency and with reduced environmental impact compared to traditional fossil fuels based devices.

They can serve many applications, e.g. replacing conventional heating systems while also providing electric power, for back-up power systems or for reliable off-grid primary power to homes, businesses, telecommunication networks, utilities.
