  Recently, there has been remarkable progress in the wider commercialization of devices and technologies that use low-temperature fuel cells and electrolyzers. These technologies are strongly linked to hydrogen and its processing – which will be featured at the efcf 2019. The EFCF conference topics span the wide range of challenges, from fundamental understanding of the relevant materials as well as of the kinetics and mass/heat transport processes in operating cells, all the way to...

Questions to be discussed include: - What progress has been made in... Read more
Following the success of the HydrogenTrain workshop in Brussels, the 14th International Hydrail Conference will take place from 20 to 21 June 2019 in Hamburg, Germany. The conference includes an excursion to the town of Bremervörde where ALSTOM operates its hydrail iLINT railcars.
This event was part of the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW). It discussed the elements needed to develop and implement an integrated approach for the ramp up of hydrogen in different European regions (“the hydrogen valleys”). It looked at, among others, policy, finance / investments, business models, local (regional) contexts and technology, to show how the development of hydrogen valleys can foster economic growth in the European regions while answering to the local energy needs and...

EUSEW is the biggest event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe. It is made up of a 3-day policy conference offering various networking opportunities, an EU Sustainable Energy Awards competition with a public vote for the citizens' award and local events, Energy Days, held across Europe throughout the months of May and June. The 14th edition of EUSEW will take place from 17 to 21 June 2019, with the policy conference running from Tuesday 18th to Thursday 20th June... Read more
The 12th SET Plan Conference will be held on June 12th - 14th, 2019 in Bucharest, under the auspices of the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the EU. It will focus on the interaction of various stakeholders with local and regional authorities on the road to a clean energy transition. The role of Hydrogen in the clean energy transition will be discussed throughout various sessions. More information is available on the SET Plan Conference website and on twitter: @SETPlan_eu and #SETPlan19...
Hydrogen has an important role in Europe’s transition to a decarbonized energy system. The success of this transformation could not just reduce carbon emissions; it could also boost industrial competitiveness, reduce resource dependency, cut energy costs, and improve citizens’ lives as air quality improves. However, much more can be done. With this event we aim to offer an insight into the plans for development of the fuel cells and hydrogen (FCH) sector in the Nordic countries and the... Read more
