PACE is a major EU project unlocking the large-scale European deployment of the state of the art smart energy solution for private homes: Fuel Cell micro-cogeneration.
By the end of the project, PACE will see over 2,500 householders across Europe reaping the benefits of this home energy system. The project will enable manufacturers to move towards product industrialisation and will foster market development at the national level by working together with building professionals and the wider energy community. The project uses modern fuel cell technology to produce efficient heat and electricity at home, empowering consumers in their energy choices.
The Final Event of the PACE project is free of charge, and you are welcome to attend either in person or online. For those attending in person, a light lunch will be provided and there will also be a networking reception at the end of the day.
