Hydrogen gains added visibility – in five southern federal states and in 56 cities with more than 110 events from various companies, colleges, universities, networks, state representations and ministries.

From 25 June to 3 July, the WEEK OF HYDROGEN (WDW – WOCHE DES WASSERSTOFFS) takes place as WEEK OF HYDROGEN SOUTH 2022 (#WDWS2022 – WOCHE DES WASSERSTOFFS SÜD 2022) in Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland with the support of the federal states. The initiator of the WDW, H2 MOBILITY Deutschland, is accompanying the week with so-called hydrogen sofas, which encourage people to exchange ideas at various events.

The WDW has set itself the goal of bundling as many insights as possible for interested parties. The website www.woche-des-wasserstoffs.de shows what is taking place in the individual federal states, who is inviting visitors to open days, presentations, marketplace events, films and hands-on activities. The events are independently organised by the participants, are open to the public and free of charge.
