Research

Joint Research Center -European Commission Institute for Energy and Transport, Petten, The Netherlands
Joint Research Center -European Commission Institute for Energy and Transport, Petten, The Netherlands

The Institute for Energy and Transport (IET) provides scientific and technical support on energy issues to policy makers of the European Union (EU). Special emphasis is given to the security of energy supply and to more sustainable, safer and cleaner energy production and use for the future.
The IET is one of the seven Institutes of the Joint Research Centre, a Directorate General (DG) of the European Commission. The JRC functions as a reference centre of science and technology for the EU. Close to the policy-making process, it serves the common interest of the Member States, while being independent of special interests, whether commercial or national.
The IET is based both in Petten (the Netherlands) and Ispra (Italy) and has a multidisciplinary team of more than 300 academic, technical and support staff.

Funding

The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) is a unique public private partnership supporting research, technological development and demonstration (RTD) activities in fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologies in Europe. Its aim is to accelerate the market introduction of these technologies, realising their potential as an instrument in achieving a carbon-lean energy system.

Fuel cells, as an efficient conversion technology, and hydrogen, as a clean energy carrier, have a great potential to help fight carbon dioxide emissions, to reduce dependence on hydrocarbons and to contribute to economic growth. The objective of the FCH JU is to bring these benefits to Europeans through a concentrated effort from all sectors.

The three members of the FCH JU are the European Commission, fuel cell and hydrogen industries represented by the NEW Industry Grouping and the research community represented by Research Grouping N.ERGHY.
