“Multitalent Hydrogen” campaign puts hydrogen in the spotlight

  • MULTITALENT HYDROGEN information campaign accompanies the 23rd UN Climate Conference in Bonn
  • “CleanShuttle” with fuel cell and battery buses organised for delegates
  • “Wasserstoff – der unbegrenzte Energieträger” (Hydrogen – the unlimited source of energy) exhibition at the Deutsches Museum in Bonn
  • Excursion programme for delegates and accredited journalists

Berlin/Bonn/Brussels, 19.10.2017 – With “MULTITALENT HYDROGEN”, the National Organisation Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology (NOW), together with the EnergieAgentur.NRW, the European hydrogen and fuel cell industry association Hydrogen Europe as well as the European public-private partnership Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) have launched an information campaign on the subject of hydrogen and fuel cell technology. The campaign, which accompanies the 23rd UN Climate Conference (COP 23) taking place in Bonn, 6-17 November 2017, unites information, events and activities revolving around the environmentally friendly possibilities that hydrogen and fuel cell technology enable in diverse areas of application.

A shuttle service deploying fuel cell and battery buses is being set up for operation during the Climate Conference by the German Association of Transport Companies (VDV – Verband Deutscher Verkehrsunternehmen) and its members. Conference delegates will be able to use the “CleanShuttle” buses to travel between the various event locations.

Fuel cell vehicles from Honda, Hyundai and Toyota, along with battery vehicles from BMW will also be used for VIP transport services. The automobile manufacturers are members of the European hydrogen and fuel cell industry association Hydrogen Europe. Through its partners, the public-private Clean Energy Partnership will ensure the provision of the hydrogen supply and refuelling infrastructure for the shuttle service.

In addition, the HyCologne e.V. society will present a special exhibition at the Deutsches Museum in Bonn entitled “Wasserstoff – der unbegrenzte Energieträger” (Hydrogen – the unlimited source of energy), which is aimed at Climate Conference participants and the general public alike. On behalf of the State of North-Rhine Westphalia, the EnergieAgentur.NRW is providing an excursion programme throughout the conference for delegates and accredited journalists, and is also organising the NRW Climate Lounge, which besides the hydrogen and fuel cell activities will also showcase numerous environmental protection and sustainability projects from throughout the entire federal state.
