  • POTENTIAL, STATE OF THE ART AND R&D REQUIREMENTS FOR FUEL CELLS IN THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY - PROCEEDINGS OF A WORKSHOP HELD AT NOORDWIJKERHOUT (NL) ON OCTOBER 7-8, 1985.

Abstract

The CEC Fuel Cell Workshop held on 7 and 8 October 1985 in Noordwijkerhout in the Netherlands was organized in collaboration with the Dutch Office for Management of Energy Projects (PEO). Of the 100 invited participants, 85 attended the workshop. The selection was made in such a way that potential users (gas and power utilities), potential manufacturers and R $:20 D institutions were more or less equally represented. The objectives of this meeting were to: (i) discuss the potential market for fuel cells in the EC; (ii) establish the state of the art in the EC; (iii) establish R, D&D requirements; (iv) explore possibilities for collaboration. Molten carbonate and phosphoric acid fuel cells were emphasized in the workshop, but other fuel cell types were also discussed. Results of the CEC funded market study for phosphoric acid fuel cells and of the PEO funded market study for molten carbonate fuel cells formed an important part of the workshop. Further on papers were presented on fuel cell activities in Italy and the Netherlands and on the state of the art of fuel cells and fuel processors. During the workshop 13 papers were presented, which introduced the topics discussed in five working groups (1) applications, (2) market potential, (3) molten carbonate fuel cells, (4) phosphoric acid fuel cells, (5) other fuel cells. The papers and the recommendations of the five working groups have been brought together in the proceedings of the CEC fuel cell workshop.
