The Fuel Cell Testing Facility

Fuel cells generate electricity through an electrochemical reaction involving hydrogen and oxygen atoms. This promising technology could help reduce CO2 emissions and is crucial to Europe's transition to green energy. See how our scientists develop fuel cell testing procedures and measurement methods.

Fuel cells have the potential to play a significant role in energy conversion and partially replace current power generation technologies in the future, thanks to their high conversion efficiency, zero emissions at the point of use, and low noise. These technologies are essential for meeting Europe's ambitious energy and climate policy goals, as well as for increasing renewable and low-carbon hydrogen supply.
