The 22nd World Hydrogen Energy Conference will take place next year in Brazil – with the help of a German business. Co-organizer of the WHEC 2018 held under the auspices of the International Association for Hydrogen Energy is reported to be Peter Sauber Agentur Messen und Kongresse. The hosts in Rio de Janeiro from June 17 through 22 will be the Laboratório de Hidrogênio, or Lab H2 for short, and the Instituto Alberto Luiz Coimbra de Pós-Graduação e Pesquisa de Engenharia, or COPPE UFRJ.
Peter Sauber Agentur has been organizing hydrogen and fuel cell events for twenty years, from Stuttgart’s World of Energy Solutions, including f-cell symposium and trade show, to the German pavilion at the international FC Expo in Tokyo (see FC Expo Now in Osaka Too). Silke Frank, division head of the Stuttgart-based business, confirmed to H2-international that the company’s years-long global activities had led to strong business relationships in Brazil and that it greatly appreciated having been chosen to organize this important industry event.
WHEC’s call for papers started in April 2017.
