£7.2m for capital funding for a Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Demonstration programme

The Department of Energy and Climate Change has allocated a total indicative budget of £7.2m for capital funding for a Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Demonstration programme, which will be delivered by the Technology Strategy Board. The programme will cover transport and stationary market applications, this one stage only competition will consist of two strands that differ in terms of the timescale and assessment process.

The scope of this competition includes collaborative proposals which will:
- facilitate the demonstration of a fleet of fuel cell and hydrogen powered vehicles
- facilitate the demonstration of residential micro combined heat and power (CHP) and distributed power generation products based on fuel cells and hydrogen technologies
- facilitate the demonstration of production of hydrogen from noncarbon sources and its use as an energy carrier
- facilitate the development of scalable processes and equipment for the mass manufacture and testing of fuel cells and fuel cell modules
- enable in-line product testing and testing for performances and reliability under realistic operating conditions.

Consortia eligible for Strand 1 funding will have ongoing or recently completed (within one year) near demonstration projects funded by the public sector, with a clear commitment for follow-on work and an existing collaboration agreement. Proposals to Strand 1 of this competition must demonstrate ability to defray the larger part of expenditures by March 2010. Deadline for receipt of applications for Strand 1 is 1st October.

Strand 2 is open to new consortia without a pre-existing collaboration agreement. Proposals to Strand 2 of this competition must demonstrate the ability to defray expenditures by March 2011. Deadline for receipt of applications for Strand 2 is 29th October.

The London Development Agency, (as part of its work on Catalyst, London's Science & Industry Council), is now funding LTN to help London-based companies and research organisations:
- find appropriate UK consortium partners to bid for funding from the TSB
- expand existing consortia to fill technical or "commercial" gaps by introducing new potential partners to them
