Online event as part of the BMU’s Environmental Technologies Export Initiative

Hydrogen technologies are in demand worldwide. Developers and users in industrial nations as well as developing countries are equally keen on their expansion. To kick off the new funding opportunities within the Environmental Technologies Export Initiative, we will discuss the challenges and potentials that this dynamically growing market brings during our kick-off online seminar on 25 February 2021.

Dialogue, knowledge transfer and cooperation at an international level are all essential to facilitate a sustainable market ramp-up of hydrogen and fuel cells. But how can the situation be assessed? We would like to invite you to actively participate in our online seminar and share your views. Together we will examine the potential of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies for export – above and beyond discussions surrounding Power-to-X.


We cordially invite you to participate in the NOW online seminar on 25.02.2021, 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

The event is taking place as part of the commissioning of the Environmental Protection Export Initiative. Launched in 2016, the “Environmental Technologies Export Initiative” of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU – Bundesministerium für Umwelt, Naturschutz und nukleare Sicherheit) aims to promote environmental technologies and thus make a concrete contribution to sustainable development and better living conditions in other countries. The export initiative is intended to make a contribution to supporting sustainable livelihoods (SDG implementation) in the target countries and to combine this with entrepreneurial benefits.
