Abstract

The high capital cost of fuel cell power plants is recognised as one of the major obstacles that prevent penetration on the market. Careful selection of suitable markets, identification of legislative, environmental and end-user requirements and cost reduction by the integral development of system and stack. These are the key elements in a three-year (1996 - 1999), joint European �Advanced DIR-MCFC Development� project, in which the Dutch Fuel Cell Corporation (BCN), Netherlands Energy Research Foundation (ECN), Stork and Royal Schelde, BG Technology plc, Gaz de France and Sydkraft have co-operated. The project covered three major fields: 1/ Market analysis; 2/ System design and 3/ Stack development
