Study on Hydrogen from Renewable Resources in the EU

Hydrogen can be produced from a broad range of renewable energy sources, acting as a unique energy hub providing low or zero emission energy to all energy consuming sectors. Technically and efficiently producing hydrogen from renewable sources is a key enabler for these developments.

Advancing Europe's energy systems: Stationary fuel cells in distributed generation

Stationary fuel cells can play a beneficial role in Europe's changing energy landscape. In distributed generation, fuel cell systems exhibit particularly high energy efficiencies (electrical efficiency of up to 60%, combined efficiency in cogeneration of more than 90%), thereby attaining considerable energy savings whilst avoiding transmission losses. The technology virtually eliminates all local emissions of pollutants.

Commercialisation of Energy Storage in Europe

This report was created to ensure a deeper understanding of the role and commercial viability of energy storage in enabling increasing levels of intermittent renewable power generation. It was specifically written to inform thought leaders and decision-makers about the potential contribution of storage in order to integrate renewable energy sources (RES) and about the actions required to ensure that storage is allowed to compete with the other flexibility options on a level playing field.

Development of Water Electrolysis in the European Union

In view of the recent interest in the transformation of renewable energy into a new energy vector that did not produce by combustion greenhouse gases emissions, the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) commissioned this report to a con­sultancy to get a better understanding of the industrial perspectives of water electrolysis in Europe. and the role that public support has in that evolution.
