Climate protection and a high quality of life – our approach to mobility is a decisive factor here, now and in the future. Shaping the mobility transition in a successful manner also helps to strengthen Germany as a location for industry.

Frage des Monats
Question of the Month

In which application are the first fuel cell systems being used successfully in emerging countries today?

For example, as network replacement systems in mobile communications, where they mostly replace diesel generators. The Indian market for telecommunications is one of the fastest growing in the world, and already around 360,000 systems there are dependent on diesel generators. Fuel cell systems can not only drastically reduce CO2 emissions but also provide major cost benefits by reducing fuel and transportation costs as well as maintenance.
