The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is one of Europe’s foremost technical universities. DTU Energy (the Department of Energy Conversion and Storage) was established in 2012, collecting the existing DTU world-class expertise in fuel cells (solid oxide fuel cells and polymer electrolyte fuel cells), electrolysis cells, polymer solar cells, batteries, hydrogen storage and related technologies into one department. Based at DTU Risø Campus, the department draws on experience within the fuel cell field going all the way back to 1987. The research group is widely acknowledged as one of the world leaders within R&D and testing of solid oxide fuel cells.
In 2010, the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen (FCH) Test Center was established. The FCH Test Center supports industry with testing, training and consultancy within fuel cell and hydrogen technologies, and deals with demonstration projects and standardization.
