Commission initiates steps to further support CHP against difficult market background
Brussels, 13 February 2014 The recent admission by the European Commission’s energy department that cogeneration is still susceptible to market failure across Europe is reinforced by recent statistics from the Netherlands[1] – where falling electricity output from industrial cogeneration is eroding previous energy efficiency gains – and from Spain, where industry has announced that 25% […] more »
Meeting of 120 experts at the symposium “Hydrogen as next generation fuel” in Herten (Germany)
Within the scope of the German “Energiewende” and the expansion of renewable energies, hydrogen will play an important role as energy storage medium. Used as fuel, hydrogen acts as alternative between surplus renewable energy and emission-free mobility. Hydrogen driven fuel-cell vehicles are known for their high range (300-500 km) and short refuelling time owing to […] more »

The ene.field project successfully installs its two first micro fuel cell-based combined heat and power units
Last Friday (6 September 2013), the two first micro fuel cell-based combined heat and power (FC-CHP) units have been officially installed in Germany (Homburg and Munich) by the ene.field project partners BAXI INNOTECH GmbH and Elcore GmbH. These units are the firsts of around 1,000 micro FC-CHP units that will be installed throughout the project […] more »
Japan’s commitment to hydrogen electricity storage: test of hydrogen electricity storage with CHP in smart gird
Japan is working on reducing its energy consumption and improving its quality of life. In this context, Kitakyushu city is used as a city-test for hydrogen electricity storage, using solar panels and industrial CHP (Combined Heat and Power). To this end, 100 kW solar panels and 400kW fuel cell, along with a small wind power […] more »
