DWV has received a funding notification for the “HyMobility Innovation Cluster” from the Project Management Organisation Jülich (PtJ) and will be supported with more than 1.4 million euros in funding. The aim is to create a network along with an innovation platform to advance the implementation of hydrogen mobility and to foster greater trust in zero-emission vehicle technology with hydrogen.
The project work carried out by the cluster is initially planned for a three-year period. With the goal of defossilising road-based mobility in various fields of application, key players from the entire value chain will work together. The market introduction of fuel cell vehicles and the development of the necessary infrastructures will be jointly advanced. This will involve drafting proposals for shaping the regulatory framework and developing economically viable market designs for a market launch.
Werner Diwald, Chairman of DWV: “Thanks to the financial support provided for the HyMobility innovation cluster, we are in a position to create a network for the exchange of knowledge and experience between the areas of hydrogen production, vehicle manufacturers and users, as well as infrastructure. In this way, we are linking the various stakeholders involved along the entire value chain. Together, we want to use this to develop the necessary regulatory measures for the necessary rapid and ambitious ramp-up of hydrogen mobility, especially in heavy-duty transport, and present them to policymakers.”
The HyMobility project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport within the framework of the National Innovation Programme Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology with a total of 1,438,600 euros. The funding guideline is coordinated by NOW GmbH and implemented by Project Management Jülich (PtJ).
