European fuel cell microCHP project launched in 1000 households

The ene.field project is the largest European demonstration of the latest smart energy solution for private homes, micro-CHP. It will see up to 1,000 households across Europe able to experience the benefits of this new energy solution. Today the project which uses modern fuel cell technology to produce heat and electricity goes live to the wider public with the launch of its website: www.enefield.eu.

Fuel cell micro-CHP products have a higher power-to-heat ratio than conventional technology and are scalable, making them suitable also for future building concepts such as low-energy and passive houses. Experts estimate that, based on the expected electricity generation mix in 2020, a product of this type retrofitted to a typical family home will save between 21% and 40% of GHG emissions compared to a condensing boiler.

The five-year demonstration project is a step change in the volume of fuel cell based micro-CHP units installed in homes across Europe. ene.field will allow house owners, installers and manufacturers to experience and evaluate the benefits of the smart energy solution which generates both heat and electricity providing comfort and service in private homes.

The ene.field project is co-funded by the European Commission’s Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH-JU) and brings together 26 partners, among whom are the 9 European manufactures which will make the products available across 12 EU Member States. At the moment Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain and United Kingdom are targeted. Information on the progress of the project is available on www.enefield.eu.
