Success Stories: A Partnership Dedicated to Clean Energy and Transport in Europe


As 2018 marks the ten-year anniversary of the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), it is inspiring to look back over the many accomplishments of the past decade. The projects described in these pages illustrate the approach of continuous learning exemplified by the FCH JU’s projects, from creating low-carbon and sustainable solutions, enabling market entry for new products, developing ‘next generation’ products based on previous research, to opening new markets for European expertise in fuel cell and hydrogen (FCH) technology.
The FCH JU’s achievements are due, in part, to its multi-stakeholder structure: a public-private partnership between industry, research and the European Commission. Industry-led research has pioneered new developments in FCH technology and brought many of them to the cusp of commercialisation. Market uptake from public authorities, major companies and citizens alike has boosted confidence in these clean technologies, establishing hydrogen as a cornerstone of Europe’s energy transition.
Citizens are at the heart of Europe’s Energy Union, a strategy aimed at providing clean, secure and affordable energy for all. For some years now, and as a signatory to the Paris Agreement in 2015, the EU has been actively targeting reductions in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
