Abstract: Standardisation efforts for stationary fuel cell systems (FCS) have been carried out over the last twenty years on different international, European and national platforms. These efforts have resulted in an active standardisation landscape with a variety of cross-cutting, application-oriented and technology-oriented standards published and under development. In principle, standards ease the market introduction of these systems, but careful coordination and harmonisation between the platforms is necessary to avoid conflicting technical specifications. This paper describes the state-of-the-art of the standardisation platforms and activities for stationary fuel cell applications and assesses the interaction between the different platforms and activities. The bottom-up feeding and top-down transposition of standards and the active involvement of national standardisation organisations in regional and international standardisation activities ontinues to add to a coherent standardisation framework for stationary fuel cells.
