IDEAL: Intelligent Decarbonized and Low Emissions Power Generation


Project funded by  Agencia Estatal de Investigación (PID2019-108592RB-C41-C42-C43-C44 / AEI / 10.13039/501100011033)

The project IDEAL aims to contribute to the global objetive of the European Union and of the Spanish Goverment on CO2 emissions reduction and systems efficiency by developing chemical (combustion) and electrochemical (fuel, cells and batteries) systems based on sustainable hydrogen, hydrogen-derived fuels (ammonia, biofuels, and synthetic fuels, such as methane or DME) and reformate gas

About Ideal

The main objetive of the IDEAL project is to facilitate the penetration of renewable energies in sectors (such as transport, heating and industry) for which electricity is not currently the form of energy at the point of end use and cannot take advantage of the great potencial of CO2 reduction of the electricity generated using green energy sources (wind and sun, mainly)
