PACE is a five-year project that has deployed more than 2,500 highly efficient Fuel Cell micro-cogeneration units in 10 European countries since 2016
What is PACE?
PACE is a €90 million public-private project co-funded by the Clean Hydrogen Partnership.
The project brings together 5 leading European suppliers (BDR Thermea, Bosch, SolydEra, Sunfire and Viessmann) who provide Fuel Cell micro-CHP systems for homes and businesses.
The manufacturers are supported by 4 partners providing specific expertise (COGEN Europe, Danish Technical University, Element Energy and Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts).

Sign our Joint Declaration on Stationary Fuel Cells for Green Buildings
Stationary Fuel Cells have a great potential to decarbonise the buildings sector and contribute to the EU’s climate and energy objectives. To maximise the decarbonisation potential of Stationary Fuel Cells we need sound and ambitious policies at European, national and local level, together with a commitment from industry. Read and sign our joint declaration if you support the development of Stationary Fuel Cells for a more climate ambitious Europe!
What is Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration?
Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration is a technology that allows you to produce heat and electricity for a small business or house from a single fuel. First, the fuel is transformed into hydrogen and the fuel cell uses this hydrogen to generate electricity and heat. Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration units are designed to meet the electrical, space heating and hot water demands of a building.
Discover via the video below how Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration works and which benefits it brings to your house or small business!
