VIRTUAL & physical platform for Fuel Cell System development

Project description

An open-source design tool supports tailor-made fuel cell systems for the transport sector

Fuel cells convert the chemical energy of hydrogen and other chemicals into electricity cleanly and efficiently. They are poised to make a significant contribution to our transition from fossil fuels to more environmentally friendly sources of energy. Technologies have advanced tremendously over the last decades, yet their potential can only be fully realised by their actual use in specific applications. Widespread adoption requires seamless integration into devices and systems, often by companies without the experience or confidence to do so. The EU-funded VIRTUAL-FCS project will develop an open-source software-hardware tool that can be adopted as a global standard for targeted fuel cell system design and integration for the transport sector.
