Decentralized energy supply with hydrogen fuel cells

Project goals

The aim of H2-Home is the development and demonstration of an integrative system for the supply of electrical and thermal energy for apartment buildings and commercial facilities using a hydrogen CHP.


The components of the system are:

  • Development of a systematic total energy model for the energy supply
  • Hydrogen CHP based on a low-temperature PEM fuel cell with 5 kWe     
  • Hydrogen-based heat generator module including condensing technology     
  • Power electronic composite solution for the parallel use of electrical energy at AC and DC level

In cooperation with H2-Netz, specific interface problems of hydrogen use in buildings are solved across projects. The practicality of H2-Home will be examined in the future by combining both projects in an exemplary hydrogen village (external link).

The final project report is available in the HYPOS member area.
