Automotive Fuel Cell Cluster Initiative for Europe

 

While the industrial fuel cell development in Europe lacks both, state-of-the-art stack products and competitive stack suppliers for automotive application. Only a few European component suppliers can deliver mature state-of-the-art stack components (MEA, bipolar plates) with the requested specifications. The project aims to establish a coalition with the objective to develop best-of-its-class automotive stack hardware with superior power density and performance while meeting commercial target cost. The project consortium combines the collective expertise of automotive OEMs, component suppliers, system integrators and research institutes and thus removes critical disconnects between stakeholders.

The work is structured along six thematic work packages:

  • WP 1: Co-ordination
  • WP 2: Compliance & Assessment
  • WP 3: Membrane electrode assembly (MEA)
  • WP 4: Bipolar Plate
  • WP 5: Stack Design & Manufacturing
  • WP 6: Stack Test & Validation
  • WP 7: Dissemination
