100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply
When: 16 May, 2017

The series of events started as the dissemination activity of the FP6 Integrated Project LargeSOFC, led by VTT in Finland. A strong emphasis therefore has always been put on high temperature fuel cells and especially SOFC technology for stationary applications. The workshop, nevertheless, has also had contributions from PEFC, electrolyser, and transport applications.

The main interest and motivation for the workshop is enabling exchange of information, state of the art, best practice, and novel developments on experiences from operating fuel cell systems, balance of plant components, operating strategies, lifetime and durability, and market development.

Participants will benefit from informal exchange between attendees, ample time for detailed discussions, technical insights, and access to some of the best worldwide knowledge in fuel cell systems.
