European fuel cell and hydrogen projects 2002-2006
This publication is a compilation of synopses of research, technological development and demonstration projects and other supporting actions on Hydrogen and Fuel Cells. The projects include those funded under the Thematic Area “Sustainable Development, Global Change and Ecosystems” of the Sixth European Research Framework Programme (2002-2006), as well as under other Thematic Areas and programmes. The booklet also includes the direct actions relating to Hydrogen and Fuel Cells undertaken by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission. For each project, basic information is provided... with regard to the scientific and technical scope, the participating organizations and contact points. The scope of the projects covers a wide range of issues in the hydrogen and fuel cells field, from hydrogen production, distribution and storage, through hydrogen pathway analysis, socio-economic analysis and regulations, codes and standards to fuel cell components and systems for stationary, transport and portable applications, and includes large-scale technology validation. The booklet also includes an overview of the portfolio of FP6 activities in these areas, including public funding trends and statistics, and a future perspective on the Seventh European Research Framework Programme.
