FCH JU Programme Review Days & Stakeholder Forum

As 2018 came to a close, HEATSTACK was delighted to participate in the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking’s annual Programme Review Days and Stakeholder Forum, which were held at the Charlemagne Building of the European Commission in Brussels.

HEATSTACK featured on Thursday 15th November 2018, with a presentation by Charlie Penny of Senior Flexonics (UK), the project co-ordinator. This presentation was delivered in the “Next Generation of Products – Energy” session to an audience that consisted of members from the FCH JU community and objective of the presentation was dissemination of HEATSTACK achievements and results. In particular, a specific objective was to present the data on AluChrom 318 with the desire that other manufacturers investigate and use this material within their SOFC mCHP systems. This would help to generate material volumes, reduce cost and improve delivery. After the presentation a number of questions concerning AluChrom were asked by the audience and answered by Charlie. The material included in the presentation was also used by the FCH JU for a project poster.
