Fuel cell program at ITRI/GEL (Industrial Technology Research Institute/Green Energy and Environment Research Laboratories) was initiated in year 2001. Phase I (2001-2004) was targeted to build a fuel cell testing center and to establish the design and manufacturing ability of 3 kW CHP (combined heat and power) unit. Phase II (2005-2008) was the pre-commercialization stage of fuel cell technology developments. Major accomplishments during phase II, were cost down of key component, improvement of fuel cell performance, evaluation of fuel cell durability, and demonstration of various prototype of fuel cell system. Injection molding technique was adopted for bipolar plate fabrication. Following Taiwan’s national energy policy, fuel cell project in ITRI/GEL aims to develop fuel cell technologies and its commercialization. At present, domestic fuel cell R&D capability and industry capital are far less than developed countries. Project strategy is focusing on the development of fuel cell key components instead of their applications. Early international niche market and Taiwan’s fuel cell demonstration project will drive the demand of fuel cell component. This will expand and eventually complete Taiwan’s fuel cell supply chain. Project also aims to develop low humidification MEA (membrane electrode assembly), cell stack, and integrated power system. Project outcome will broaden international market and benefit Taiwan industries.
