Rainer, Hans (E.ON Energie AG, Germany)

Electricity, gas and heat are core products of the E.ON group. It is therefore no doubt about that the fuel cell - as an innovative technology for converting gas into electric power and heat - is of considerable interest to E.ON. Fuel cells have raised many expectations both in politics and in economics in regard to climate protection and energy efficiency. Fuel cell plants can be installed close to the energy consumers that means directly at the clients site. Herefrom arise chances for new business models and for further strengthening of the customer relationship. The paper provides a brief insight into the fuel cell strategy in general and into the most actual fuel cell projects in particular of E.ON Energie - the largest subgroup within E.ON.
