Berlin, Stuttgart— National and international guests from business, politics and research will discuss the future of hydrogen and fuel cell technology at the f-cell in Stuttgart on 10 and 11 September 2019.

Baden-Württemberg’s Minister of the Environment Franz Untersteller, who presents the f-cell award for outstanding research projects and market-ready products, is also present. His counterpart from Western Australia, Bill Johnston, speaks locally to the hydrogen strategy of his provincial government. In addition, the first German 24-hour hydrogen rally takes place in Stuttgart with Start. As in previous years, NOW GmbH is a partner of f-cell.

Hydrogen as a storage solution for surplus electricity from renewable energies and as fuel in traffic is no longer a future scenario. From China to Japan to Australia, more and more countries are turning to hydrogen as the building block of a clean energy future. The province of Western Australia has recently submitted a strategy for renewable hydrogen. In Stuttgart, Minister Bill Johnston seeks partners from research and industry to implement concrete projects. “Hydrogen in Australia” is one of about 50 lectures on the two-day f-cell. NOW GmbH also contributes its hydrogen expertise. Thorsten Herbert, Head of Transportation and Infrastructure NOW GmbH, gives an overview of the developments in technology and the possibilities of funding. Philipp Braunsdorf,

Further lectures highlight the topics of commercial vehicles, aviation and hydrogen solutions for public road and rail traffic. Hydrogen bus fleets are on the rise in European and Asian cities, and rail operators are increasingly exploring ways to reduce emissions from their non-electrified tracks. Three presentations will discuss technologies, business cases and strategies for mass application.

The first 24-hour hydrogen rally in Germany

A German premiere will take place in the run-up to this year’s f-cell: On the afternoon of 9 September, the first 24-hour hydrogen challenge in Germany started at 17:00. The teams compete against each other in a rally with their hydrogen cars. The starting signal is at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart. From there it goes 24 hours across Germany. The aim of the first rally on German soil is the Wagenhallen in Stuttgart, where on the evening of 10th September the f-cell award will be presented by Baden-Württemberg’s Environment Minister Franz Untersteller.
