Hydrogen Appliances and Fuel Cells
The thermal technology industry can play a leading role in the technological reconversion and consolidation of the hydrogen supply chain.
Despite the absence of Hydrogen pipelines and the still necessary adaptation of distribution networks, sector studies, market analysis and the increasingly explicit commitment of various European nations, are opening up market opportunities for heating appliances powered by hydrogen blends in various percentages and for fuel cell micro-cogenerators (micro-CHP), as well as accessories and components.
