Production Ready Heat Exchangers and Fuel Cell Stacks for Fuel Cell mCHP

Discover HEATSTACK Project

HEATSTACK Project

Fuel cells have shown great promise for residential micro-Combined Heat and Power (mCHP) generation due to their high electrical efficiency and ability to run on conventional heating fuels. Technology leaders in this sector are nearing commercial deployment following extensive field trials but high capital costs remain a key challenge to the advancement of this sector and mass market introduction in Europe. The 36 month HEATSTACK project, funded through the FCH Joint Undertaking and Horizon 2020, focuses on reducing the cost of the two most expensive components within the fuel cell system; the fuel cell stack and heat exchanger, which together represent the majority of total system CAPEX.
