• FCH JU projects – Fuel Cell based Auxiliary Power Units – Joint Workshop

    The workshop is organized as a final dissemination event of the SSH2S – Fuel Cell Coupled Solid State Hydrogen Storage Tank – performed in the frame of FCH JU activities. The main objective of SSH2S is to develop a solid state hydrogen storage tank fully integrated with a fuel cell and to demonstrate its application on a real system. The application of the hydrogen tank has been experimentally investigated with a 1 kW Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) prototype based on a High Temperature Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (HTPEM) fuel cell. The project has a total budget of 3.5 M€, with a EU contribution of 1.6 M€. The project is coordinated by the University di Turin (Italy) and it involves various research centers and companies around Europe: Institute for Energy Technology (Norway), Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany), Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (Germany), Tecnodelta s.r.l. (Italy), Serenergy A/S (Denmark), Fiat Research Centre (Italy) and Joint Research Centre of European Commission (Belgium). Programme The Joint Workshop brings together three FCH JU projects (DESTA, FCGEN e SSH2S) that are involved in research and demonstration in Fuel Cell based Auxiliary Power Units, to discuss topics of common interests. The workshop program is based on project presentations (oral sessions) and a breakout discussion session, based on the design of the integrated system, technical specifications and safety issues. An exhibition of APU system developed in the frame of the SSH2S project is also scheduled. At the end of the workshop, key insights from the discussion sessions will be identified, recorded and subsequently disseminated amongst all participants, the FCH JU and the wider fuel cell and hydrogen community.   Participation to the workshop is free of charge. Interested participants can register sending an e.mail to marcello.baricco@unito.it by June 16th, 2014.
