1 The European Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) Participation and Role of an Italian SME: Stefano Modena

2 5 different JTIs ( Joint Technology Initiative) to approach and solve challenges of these years: 1. Innovative Medicines (IMI) 2. Embedded Computing Systems (ARTEMIS) 3. Aeronautics and Air Transport ( Clean Sky ) 4. Nanoelectronics Technology 2020 (ENIAC) 5. Fuel Cells and Hydrogen (FCH) Verona Fiere 21 ottobre 2008

3 Strategic role of the FCH-JTI The European Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan has identified fuel cells as a key technology for Europe for achieving a 20% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions; a 20% share of renewable energy sources in the energy mix; and a 20% reduction in primary energy use by 2020 ( target) Verona Fiere 21 ottobre 2008

4 Main JTI stakeholders Verona Fiere 21 ottobre 2008

5 Partecipanti italiani JTI: Abruzzo Ansaldo Fuel Cells Lazio Centro Ricerche Fiat Lombardia Enel Produzione Piemonte Environment park Trentino ILT Technology Labor srl SAPIO Produzione Idrogeno Ossigeno SOFCpower Università: Torino Bologna Roma Genova Salerno CNR CESI-Ricerca ENEA Polit.Torino Alto Adige Verona Fiere 21 ottobre 2008

6 The Industry Grouping 65 companies Major share of European FC industry Representing more than 90% of total industry investment Large corporations and SMEs Shares 50% of the JTI Program Office running cost

15 SOFCpower Italian company, founded in 2006 Acquisition of Swiss HTCeramix (2007) Ca.30 employees Delivers key Fuel Cell Stack technology to major European development programs Co-development projects with leading utilities and system manufacturers

16 Application, product & supply chain Application: micro-chp (Combined Heat & Power), distributed generation 20% demonstrated* primary energy reduction, by Japanese demonstration program Product: HoTbox = energy generating unit for CHP system 0,5-1 kwe *Japanese demonstration program NEDO

17 CHP (Combined Heat and Power) Fuel cells generate electrical energy and heat The heat, that is usual wasted in the power plant, is used for heating purposes increasing the overall efficiency. Use of biofuels: reduction of dependence from fossile fuels. Security of supply due to microgeneration Losses FUEL 100% <40 % Electricity Heating <60% FUEL 100% Electricity Heating 80-90% -- Verona Fiere 21 ottobre 2008

22 SOFC building blocks for larger systems development of modules up to 5 kwe further developments of the FLAME-type concept 2,5 kwe stack, expandable to cm 2 active area (60 W/cell) Verona Fiere 21 ottobre 2008

23 SME and innovation of energy systems SMEs regard four factors as constituting equally important barriers to innovation*: 1. problems in access to finance, 2. scarcity of skilled labour 3. lack of market demand (long term market risks) 4. and the high cost of human resources. *http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/enterprise_policy/analysis/observatory_en.htm

24 SME in the MAIP*: Strategic objectives Strategic objectives - the JTI Program Mission The aim of the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) is to execute a program.. Carried out with the cooperation and involvement of stakeholders from Industry (including SMEs), research centres, universities and regions, MAIP*: Multi Annual Implementation Plan

25 Representation of SME in the JTI-JU In the JTI-board 6 of 12 seats are represented by the NEW- IG. 1 of the 12 seats is reserved for SMI representation. Currently 3 of 6 board members are from SMI Of 65 NEW-IG members: 2/3 are Large, 1/3 are SMI, = Small & Micro In Europe SME..* Represent 60% of industrial jobs 2 out of 3 new jobs are created in SME

26 Conclusions The JTI Fuel Cells & Hydrogen has been launched and it s operative. The first call has been published JTI has a special focus on SME participation The participation of SME in the JTI contributes to lowering the typical barriers to innovation fo the SME.

27 Finally SMEs growing in the sector of fuel cells & hydrogen run one major risk: to become big companies! Thank You for your attention
