The nationwide funding program 433 – Subsidy for fuel cells from the KfW bank will expire on December 31, 2022.

Our fuel cell CHP units inhouse 5000+ and inhouse5000+ hydrogen are funded with €29,900. Save a subsidy of €29,900 by the end of the year – even if the system is not installed until summer 2024.

The funding amount consists of a fixed amount of €6,800 and a performance-related amount. Depending on the electrical output, the fuel cell is subsidized with an additional €550 for every 0.1 kW or part thereof. For our inhouse5000+, this results in a maximum subsidy of €29,900. The funding guideline expires at the end of this year and so far no extension of the program has been announced by KfW.

30.05.2022 – 02.06.2022

After two years with corona pandemic and absence, this year Hanover Fair is taking place in presence again. We are very pleased about this and cordially invite you to visit us at our booth. We present our combined heat and power system inhouse5000+, which offers considerable potential for saving energy costs and CO2 emissions.

Arrange your personal on-site meeting now and let us advise you on the cost-effectiveness and advantages of our “Made in Germany” heating.

If you are not able to visit us, please download our Data sheet inhouse5000+ and feel free to contact us.

The internet portal for renewable energies has published a survey by the brokerage porta ‘’, in which almost 9,000 potential heating customers were asked. Almost 31 percent of those questioned favor fuel cell heating. At almost 48 percent, gas heating is still right at the top of the popularity scale.

Surprised? “Not really,” says Valentin Drießen, managing director of Hausfrage. “In addition to its green energy, the trend towards fuel cells can also be explained by its cost-effective use. I am sure that we will see a further increase in fuel cell heating systems over the next few years.”

We support you in your project to install a new hydrogen-powered fuel cell heating system. Contact us.

Optimization of a decentralized energy supply with H2-PEM fuel cells in the “energy pavilion”


With the newly approved funding program “H2HomeOpti”, inhouse engineering GmbH is continuing the development of a fuel cell CHP unit for stationary energy supply based on pure hydrogen. In the “H2 HomeOpti” project, the primary research goal is the development of optimization solutions for an H2 CHP unit based on PEM fuel cells.
In the previous H2home and H2home II projects, an H2 CHP based on PEM fuel cells and its best possible building integration to achieve maximum efficiency was and is being developed and tested. In cooperation with the H2 network project, the H2 CHP unit on the test site in Bitterfeld-Wolfen is supplied with hydrogen. Specific interface problems related to the use of hydrogen in buildings are solved across projects, which is why the project is essential for the overall HYPOS strategy. The interface problems include questions about the H2 gas connection (pressure level, quality, safety, odorization).

BMWi – Research funding in the 7th energy research program “Research for a more environmentally friendly, reliable and affordable energy supply – the “Lifetime SelOx”project has started


The aim of the project is to research the thermodynamic, chemical, apparatus and operational principles for a SelOx reactor for co-fine cleaning in reformers for PEM fuel cell CHP systems as well as the integration of a functional model in a 5 kW micro-CHP system.

In close cooperation, the partners in “Lifetime SelOx” will evaluate the performance and long-term stability of the newly developed SelOx reactor during plant operation.

First H2 infrastructure in Germany


At the beginning of July 2020, two TV contributions were made in the hydrogen village of Bitterfeld. The European Commission plans to provide EUR 430 billion to support hydrogen production and consumption within ten years.

A Czech television team was also on site in Bitterfeld-Wolfen and reported on the technology and orderability of hydrogen. This shows us that the importance of hydrogen technology has reached beyond the borders.


Our fuel cell stacks from Köpenick


The special thing about our company is that we manufacture the fuel cell stacks for the fuel cell CHP inhouse5000 + ourselves.


(…) “In parallel to these activities, the company, which has 24 employees, has been working on its H2 CHP for almost five years. This is currently being tested as part of the Hypos H2-Home project in Bitterfeld. In the so-called “hydrogen village” there, pipelines are also tested for suitability for H2 transport (H2 network project, see HZwei issue Jul. 2019). One focus of the work there since 2016 has initially been the development of this hydrogen CHP unit. According to Hildebrandt, “all goals were achieved” (electrical efficiency: approx. 50%, overall efficiency: up to 92% based on calorific value or up to 104% based on calorific value).”(…)
