CEA (French Atomic Energy Commission) is a research state agency for nuclear energy, employing a staff of 16000 people. LITEN (Laboratory of Innovations on Technologies for new Energies and Nanomaterials) as a part of CEA´s Research and Technology Division (DRT) deals with the new technologies for energy and nanomaterials. GERMAN AEROSPACE CENTER                      GERMANY                                           The Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics of the German Aerospace Centre is active in the fields of renewable energy research and technology development for efficient and low emission energy conversion and utilisation. The department of Electrochemical Energy Technology has long-term experience in fuel cells (SOFC, PEFC; DMFC and AFC), production technologies e.g., plasma technology, rolling and cold dry spraying techniques.


EUROPEAN COMMISSION                    


The Institute for Energy and Transport (IET) is part of the Directorate General Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission. Its mission is to provide scientific and technical support for the conception, development, implementation and monitoring of community policies related to energy. Special emphasis is given to the security of energy supply and sustainable and safe energy production.


TOULOUSE                                       FRANCE

INPT (Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse) is a technical university focussing on engineering sciences. Within INPT, IMFT (“Toulouse Institute of Fluids Mechanics”) is a joint research laboratory run by the CNRS, the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse (INPT) and the Paul Sabatier University (UPS). The porous media group GEMP (Groupe d’Etudes sur les Milieux Poreux) is one of the six research groups of IMFT and is Nationally and internationally known for its research on transport phenomena in porous media. PAUL-SCHERRER-INSTITUT                                                 SWITZERLAND  Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) is a multi-disciplinary Swiss federal research centre for natural sciences and technology. PSI is active in solid state physics, materials sciences, elementary particle physics, life sciences, nuclear and non-nuclear energy research, with a staff of ca. 1200 persons. The Laboratory for Electrochemistry (ECL), currently comprising 50 people, has a long term experience in the development of polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFC), advanced lithium batteries, super capacitors, and electrochemistry related materials research.



SGL is one of the leading manufacturers of carbon materials with more than 6000 employees worldwide. The portfolio comprises performance products (graphite and carbon electrodes for steelmaking, aluminium and silicon production), carbon fibres and composites (carbon fibres composite materials, ceramics) and graphite specialties. In the field of energy, SGL is manufacturing fibrous (GDLs, carbon felts) and powder electrode materials (artificial graphite for LIB and activated carbon for EDLC) as well as graphite compounds for bipolar plates and graphite foils. SGL started development of gas diffusion layers in 1998 and offers various GDL materials for automotive, stationary and portable fuel cells.

NedStack Fuel Cell Technology B.V. manufactures and commercializes PEM fuel cell stacks for the main fuel cell markets. Customers are system integrators of PEM fuel cells: manufacturers of back-up power units (UPS), manufacturers of power generators, shipyards and bus manufacturers. NDSTK and partners also produce large stationary fuel cell systems up to 1 MW operating on hydrogen, and have developed and delivered pre- commercial products for transport applications. NDSTK was established in 1999 as a buy- out of the PEM fuel cell activities of AkzoNobel. It employs 50 people (40 FTE’s).NDSTK is a member of New-IG, the European Industrial Grouping Hydrogen and Fuel Cells which is member of the FCH JU.
