Recently, there has been remarkable progress in the wider commercialization of devices and technologies that use low-temperature fuel cells and electrolyzers. These technologies are strongly linked to hydrogen and its processing – which will be featured at the efcf 2019. The EFCF conference topics span the wide range of challenges, from fundamental understanding of the relevant materials as well as of the kinetics and mass/heat transport processes in operating cells, all the way to...

Description The CertifHy project 2 has nearly finalized designing the first EU-wide Guarantees of Origin (GO) for Green and Low Carbon Hydrogen, including defining the scheme’s governance, as well as its processes and procedures for the entire GO life cycle: from auditing hydrogen production plants, certification of Green or Low Carbon Hydrogen production batches, through issuing, trading and “usage” of GOs. During the CertifHy Stakeholder Forum and Final... Read more
The FCH JU has commissioned a study to solve some of the issues related to metering in hydrogen refilling stations (HRS). This study is carried out by a consortium led by Air Liquide, and is planned to finish towards the end of March. The objective was to develop a testing protocol for an accelerated certification for hydrogen dispensers in compliance with OIML R139, and also to implement this protocol on several HRS in operation in Europe (accuracy tests on site). The final objective is...

The workshop is a joint initiative from HYSAFE and the two projects PRESLHY and SH2IFT, focussing on hydrogen safety, with special emphasis on liquid hydrogen. Increasing interest in hydrogen in general and more specifically in large volumes has led to a growing need of the understanding of LH2 and related safety aspects of handling and use. Results and plans of the two projects will be presented, and additional invited expert speakers and key stake holders will join. More... Read more
The INSPIRE project team is pleased to invite you to a technical information-sharing and networking event focusing on PEMFC components and their integration into fuel cell stacks.
