Decentralized energy supply with hydrogen fuel cells
PROJECT BLOG (IN GERMAN)
The project partners offer insights into the Hydrogen Village for a professional audience. Register here for the guided tour (external link).
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.
