TARGET OF WORKSHOP
The workshop provides the elucidation of current fuel cell research targets and efforts. Presentations on the recent developments in the TCP on Advanced Fuel Cells build the framework of the workshop. Please use your chance to discuss with internationally renowned experts the fascinating topics of hydrogen and fuel cells as key technology for a sustainable energy system.

TARGET GROUP
•  Research institutions and universities
•  Policy makers dealing with energy effi ciency issues
•  Industry (development, production, service companies & utility 
companies)
Financial support is provided by the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation  and  Technology  and  the Austrian  Research  Promotion Agency (FFG) through the IEA Research Cooperation.

ANNEX 31 - POLYMER ELECTROLYTE FUEL CELLS
Annex 31 is research and development oriented and targets the identification and development of techniques and materials to reduce the cost and improve the performance and durability of polymer electrolyte fuel cells and corresponding fuel cell systems.

ANNEX 35 - FUEL CELLS FOR PORTABLE APPLICATIONS
Annex 35 focuses on polymer electrolyte fuel cells operated with methanol, hydrogen, ethanol or propane.  The specific research demands and technical conditions needed to deliver viable fuel cells for portable applications.
