This study, funded by the AFC TCP, gives an overview of the applicable regulations, codes and standards for the installation of stationary fuel cell systems in different countries.
In particular, the proposal focuses on the analysis of the IEC 62282-3-300 "Stationary fuel cell system- installation" International Standard and IEC 62282-3-400 “Small stationary fuel cell power system with combined heat and power output”, comparing its uptake in different countries where stationary FC applications are relevant.
The main objective is thus to understand how the deployment of stationary fuel cell systems is governed by common standards that can facilitate the few industrial manufacturers in cornering emerging markets across the globe, thereby accelerating the achievement of scale and cost reductions. The countries analysed are: Japan (Asia) and Germany, Austria and Italy (Europe).
