The Fuel Cells Testing & Standardisation Network, FCTESTNET, Fuel Cells Glossary

Funded under: FP6-JRC


This report is the first one of a series of reports produced by the EC-funded FP5 Thematic Network project FCTESTNET. All network Work Packages contributed with specific terminology reports that were incorporated and harmonised in the FCTESTNET Fuel Cells Glossary. The Version 1 of the Glossary was distributed to the Network members and to International institutions. Comments and suggestions are included in the present Version 2 of the Glossary.
The development of a commonly agreed terminology is an important step towards the harmonisation of testing procedures and methodologies related to a new fast growing technology. It is important for joint projects to have a common definition within the European Union. This is the main objective of this glossary. Nevertheless, it is seen as important by the contributors to do this work in close collaboration with the international standardisation activities and to integrate this document in a future international standardisation activity. This is an important reason to integrate already available definitions from overseas as far as possible, however some have been modified regarding European requirements.
