On Wednesday, 7 December 2022, the focus will be on prospects for the economic viability of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in decentralised energy supply. To this end, a live digital broadcast will present the contents and results of the Export Initiative Environmental Protection (EXI) funding programme of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) and take an international view of the topic.
The use of green hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in decentralised energy supply applications can make a positive contribution towards access to green environmental technologies, improved security of supply and local public welfare, especially in emerging and developing countries. Decentralised and off-grid fuel cell systems used in stationary or semi-stationary energy supply not only ensure a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and an increased protection of the environment and health. Using renewable energies in combination with hydrogen and fuel cell technologies can also ensure the all-important independent and reliable supply of energy, which at the same time offers great potential for social and economic development in EXI’s target countries.

As the programme company of EXI, NOW GmbH invites a professional audience from business and science, technology providers and project developers, universities and research institutes as well as internationally active partners to learn more about the economic perspectives of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in decentralised energy supply in an international context through exciting contributions, key notes and discussions in the live stream.
About the Export Initiative Environmental Protection (EXI)
The focus of the support provided by the “Export Initiative Environmental Protection” (EXI – Exportinitiative Umweltschutz) is on the benefits for the environment and people. The programme’s name is now intended to convey this focus even more clearly. German green tech know-how is exported for greater environmental protection, higher environmental standards and better living conditions. The supported projects are to contribute to the development, harmonisation, communication and application of uniform – and, if available, global – environmental standards and the creation of suitable framework conditions to facilitate their implementation. The concrete need for support in the target country is an important aspect of the funding objective, as is the expected environmental benefit. Activities for the dissemination of environmental knowledge, environmental awareness and for building capacities are to be supported in a targeted manner in order to contribute to sustainable development and thus to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals of Agenda 2030 (with a special focus on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)).
