Fuel Cells and Hydrogen in Buildings: Integrating Electricity, Heat and Gas for a Decarbonised Future Energy System
The session will explore how building-level fuel cells and H2 can contribute towards EU’s 2030 and 2050 climate and energy goals. It will provide case studies of customer experiences and will showcase the industry’s commitment to scale up fuel cell micro-cogeneration uptake and reduce product cost. Speakers will map out a decarbonisation pathway for buildings, with a mix of complementary solutions, including energy efficiency via fuel cell micro-cogeneration and renewable and decarbonised gases, including H2.
The event will discuss with national governments, local authorities, the European Commission and industry representatives the potential, challenges and opportunities for large scale fuel cell micro-cogeneration and H2 uptake in the building sector. The debate will focus on national and local authorities’ perspectives, as they engage in national debates on medium and long-term climate and energy strategies as part of the Clean Energy Package implementation.
