Free Book about Hydrogen and Fuel Cells
Both the author Arno A. Evers and the publishing house Hydrogeit Verlag decided to donate the book
The Hydrogen Society – More Than Just a Vision?
to the worldwide H2-community.
This book written by Arno A. Evers was published in April 2010 on the annual Hanover Fair where the author had established a global meeting point for companies and interested people from commerce and politics as well as science and media who are involved in the implementation of hydrogen and fuel cells since 1995. Right now all printed copies of the Hardback-book which contains 168 colorful pages, lots of illustrations and also a preface from T. Nejat Veziroglu, IAHE-President are sold out. But it is still available as e-book. Because of the visit of US-President Barack Obama on April 24th, 2016 during this Hanover Fair (USA is selected partner country) the e-book is provided – for free – for all interested readers who are invited to start discussion about all the ideas and topics which are mentioned by Arno A. Evers.
