  • Development of background information: stakeholders and research projects worldwide, available technology, emerging approaches and the identification of research and needs.
  • Development of a 5 kW tactical fuel cell operating on diesel fuel.
  • Field testing of a residential CHP system
  • Laboratory performance of valuation of the residential CHP system
  • Evaluation and development of software for the design and optimization of SAES.
