As E4tech’s 2017 Fuel Cell Industry Review notes, China is and will be a significant force on the development of the fuel cell industry. E4tech Director David Hart is speaking about UK developments in hydrogen infrastructure at the 3rd International Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle Congress in Rugao (23-25 Oct.), where he will also be gathering information for this year’s Review- due to be published soon. Our China expert Khangzhen Leow will also be attending - please do get in touch if you’ll be there and would like to catch up with either of them, and register for the Industry Review if you'd like to be notified when it's available.
The news on hydrogen for heavy duty vehicles and now trains seems to be running to a regular schedule. Almost every day news emerges of government appetite for electrification by means other than overhead wires, or of train builders planning new products. Train builder Alstom’s name recently joined the list of companies planning activities in the UK. A very timely event (click here for details) is being held in Edinburgh on 22 May to bring together the hydrogen and rail communities. E4tech is lead sponsor of the event, organised by European Policy Solutions, and Adam Chase (E4tech Director) will be speaking.
The new Fuel Cell Industry Guide from the Fuel Cells Working Group of the VDMA (Mechanical Engineering Industry Association) will launch at the Hannover Messe (23-27 April). It shows how their members are positioned in the growing global fuel cell and hydrogen sector. E4tech contributed insight on global fuel cell markets. Join Dr Manfred Stefener, Chairman of the VDMA Working Group Fuel Cells, and E4tech’s Franz Lehner in Hannover for a discussion of the findings on Wednesday, April 25th at 12:00 in the Public Forum (Hall 27, Stand C66) of the Group Exhibit Hydrogen + Fuel Cells + Batteries.
The debate on hydrogen and fuel cells is picking up, with major developments in China and increasing corporate interest in Europe.
