Mobility that secures and is geared to the future is the goal. Sustainability is the key. Getting everyone on board is our mission.
The climate goals set by the federal government serve as our guide. As a federally-owned company, we take assignments in the area of sustainable mobility and energy supply from so-called top-level federal authorities, i.e. federal ministries. These assignments mostly consist of the implementation and coordination of funding programmes. We are also tasked with accompanying strategic stakeholder processes, organising international collaborations, and we are active in advancing acceptance of alternative technologies in society.
The founding mission of NOW is the National Innovation Programme for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology (NIP). To this day NOW has hydrogen and fuel cell technology in its name. NOW’s task portfolio has vastly expanded since its establishment in 2008. Not least because of increasing societal and political importance of clean, efficient mobility based on renewable energies. In terms of technology, NOW’s tasks today include the areas of hydrogen, fuel cells, batteries and liquid gas, both in terms of drives and fuels, as well as the infrastructure side.
