ene.field Project Gains Callux Experience

22 Feb 2013

Enefield partners

Partners in the European residential micro-CHP project, ene.field recently held a meeting in Berlin to discuss the latest developments. The partners also met with representatives of the German Callux project to gain additional experience from Germany’s biggest demonstration to date of fuel cell heating systems for domestic use.

Dr Klaus Bonhoff, Managing Director of NOW, addressed the meeting and highlighted the opportunities for fuel cells in residential CHP. Bonhoff said “Energy efficiency will be a key criterion for future product generations in all areas. Fuel cell technology will therefore play a major part in the decentralised provision of heat and power for houses. On-going field trials prove its technical aptitude, reliability and functionality as well as real CO2 savings. The crucial step towards commercial markets now is cutting costs of production and setting the political framework for market introduction.”

The ene.field project consortium also discussed opportunities for other industry stakeholders, particularly utilities, to get involved in the project. The partners will also be visiting the Hannover Fair (8-12 April) where they will be discussing the project in more detail.

The ene.field project is the largest European demonstration of the fuel cell micro-CHP for private homes. Up to 1,000 households across Europe will experience the benefits of this new energy solution during the five-year project.

Co-funded by the European Commission’s Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH-JU), ene.field brings together 26 partners, including the 9 European manufactures which will make the products available across 12 EU Member States. Currently Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain and United Kingdom are included.
