Solar energy is an abundant resource, and hydrogen has potential to be a central energy carrier in our future energy systems. This project aimed to make the production of hydrogen-based fuels using solar energy more cost-efficient.

Using nanotechnology to increase fuel cell durability (2007-2010)

Polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) are considered a cornerstone technology for a future hydrogen-based economy. However, high costs of materials and insufficient durability hindered widespread its utilisation.  This project…

Polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) are considered a cornerstone technology for a future hydrogen-based economy. However, high costs of materials and insufficient durability hindered widespread its utilisation.  This project used carbon nanotubes (CNT) and nanofibres (CNF) to increase the durability of this promising technology.

Creating more efficient algae-based biofuels (2008-2010)

In producing biomass fuels, it is important to compare production alternatives for various primary sources. This project aimed at optimising algal culturing as a source for biodiesel production, as algae…

In producing biomass fuels, it is important to compare production alternatives for various primary sources. This project aimed at optimising algal culturing as a source for biodiesel production, as algae have several advantages to land based biomass. Algae reproduce several times a day, their lipid content is higher than that of terrestrial plants, algal production does not compete for land with food production.

Hydrogen and fuel cell technology could play a critical role in a more sustainable transport system. The European Commission financed the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell European Research Area Network (ERA-Net) from 2004 to 2008. 19 different countries and regions participated in the Network, giving participating researchers a large pool of resources. Nordic Energy Research assisted in operating the programme on behalf of the participating countries and the European Union.
