This CDT addresses an important field in the development of energy technology in Europe, namely that of highly efficient energy conversion in fuel cells, working with a wide range of fuels. The Centre continues the work of an existing DTC with 50 students and will be training a further 77 in the years to come. The research area comprises catalysis, materials development (including nano-materials), integration of fuel cells in vehicles, system design, fuel processing, hydrogen storage, modelling, and socio-economic research. The CDT has received very encouraging backing from industry and secured £3.2 million of third party funding.
