International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Conference


This 2-day International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell conference organised by the Nordic countries will focus on discussions around the establishment and support of Hydrogen Energy supply chains.

During the conference, we will highlight experiences, opportunities, threats and bottlenecks in the area of Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies over a series of presentations.

This conference is open to national and international R&D institutions and Universities as well as industries involved in the engineering, scientific, technology developing and end-user sectors.

The conference is organised by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, SINTEF, Chalmers University of Technology and the Norwegian Hydrogen Forum.


Other scopes:

  • Inform/update the industry & the public on the status of Hydrogen and Fuel Technologies (HFCT) in all market sectors (land transportation, stationary, portable, maritime, air passenger, military etc)
  • Discuss existing and promising HFCT markets
  • Highlight various HFCT programmes, projects, etc in various market sectors at governmental and industrial levels worldwide
  • Highlight innovative materials, systems (and integration) in fuel cell and hydrogen generation
