The ene-field project ran European wide field trials for stationary fuel cells in residential Fuel Cell Micro-CHP. The aim was to promote practical learning and demonstrate the market potential for micro-FC-CHP. Around a thousand units were installed in 12 EU Member States. The Final Report concluded that the fuel cells can efficiently produce electricity and heat from natural gas. Furthermore, the large-scale rollout of FC micro-CHP units can help the EU fulfil energy policy aims and climate commitments. In general, the greenhouse gas emissions of a FC micro-CHP are lower than those of a gas condensing boiler or heat pump in all the investigated scenarios
The project closed in October 2017 and the successor project is Pathway to a Competitive European Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration Market (PACE). See www.pace-energy.eu For more information on ene-field see www.enefield.eu
