This blog is a project by Sven Geitmann, founder and owner of publishing house Hydrogeit Verlag. Both the H2-international Blog and the H2-international e-journal contain articles which are also published in the German magazine HZwei, hence the focus is on German H2- & FC-activities but there are also many texts about the worldwide fuel cell activities.
The articles online in the blog are only short versions of the longer ones, which are published in the e-journal. Hence only the subscribers of the e-journal can read all the interesting details.
Three of our well-known correspondents are

This journal is a respectful attempt at continuing the work that Peter Hoffmann started more than 25 years ago. His Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Letter (H&FCL) was an inspiring read for many people from all over the world interested in hydrogen and fuel cells. I met Peter several times and we worked successfully as a team – he in the US and I in Germany. In April 2014 he died much too young and was shortly followed by his wife, Sarah. All their work is now stored in the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Archives.
H2-international cannot amount to a relaunch of the H&FCL, but it may constitute an offer to all those who are interested in reading about hydrogen and fuel cells. For many months it has been impossible to obtain detailed or objective information on these topics, also because FuelCellToday ceased its activities in January 2014 after thirteen years of reporting.
That’s why I started H2-international. This journal might close that gap.
In memory of Peter and Sarah
