pictureSobering News for Early Adopters of FCEV
People need to experience electric transportation on their own, something which is true for drivers of both battery and fuel cell cars. At least an adequate number of purely battery-driven vehicles have already made it onto the public roads in Germany. But how can people today gather their own personal experiences of driving fuel cell … Read more

pictureLa Grande Nation Hangs On To Nuclear Power
In the 1960s and 1970s, France’s industry and research departments used to be very proactive in fuel cell development. Then, 1974 came to pass and with it the slogan of “all-electric, all-nuclear” (tout-éléctrique, tout-nucléaire). The number of fuel cell projects fell drastically and remained at its low level until about the end of the 1990s. … Read more

pictureThe Invisible Flame
The hope for future power plants has a name: BlueStep. A prototype at the Technical University of Berlin burns hydrogen and oxygen with the help of wet air – or, in other words, with the help of wet steam. The project’s predecessor, Greenest, which was launched with the same intention of advancing the development of … Read more

pictureMetering: Hydrogen for the Energy Industry
“Regenerative fuel gases” like hydrogen generated through electrolyte processes constitute new product offerings in transport and trade. They create new material and energy flows and alter the product portfolio of the energy industry. Both materials and energy are traded and distributed. In Germany, these transactions require metering devices that have undergone official calibration … Read more

pictureHigh-Throughput Method to Develop Alkaline Fuel Cells
The NEMEZU project launched at the beginning of 2016 is expected to develop high-throughput methods to screen new types of material combinations quickly but close to a real-life fuel cell environment. This project is planned to map the entire supply chain involved in producing alkaline fuel cells – from electrolyte materials … Read more

pictureNew CPN Deputy Spokesperson
The members of industry network Clean Power Net (CPN) have elected a new deputy spokesperson during this year’s annual assembly in Berlin. Whereas Henrik Colell, CTO of Heliocentris Energy Solutions, was confirmed as the spokesman for the fifth year in a row, the members voted for a “new face” when it came to the deputy … Read more

pictureWind Energy Storage in the North East
The 2014 version of the German Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) allows operators in case of a grid overload to “reduce the feed-in” of green power, but with the obligation to log the incident. The ones who pay for it are the utility customers because the owners of wind farms receive their usual feed-in payment … Read more

pictureElectric Transportation Is Not a Carmaker’s Privilege
The expansion of renewable energies in the transportation sector requires new types of propulsion and energy supply systems for all means of transport, as environmental hazards can have an impact on a country’s population, especially in metropolitan areas. Transportation on inland waterways shows enormous potential for improvement because today’s propulsion systems will not be able … Read more

 Literature


Ten Years of HZwei News

Ten years ago, Hydrogeit Verlag printed its first issue of the

HZwei magazine

German counterpart of H2-international

Entitled “H2Tec” in 2000, the Magazine for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells had been published for six years prior under SunMedia before the people responsible for it intended to go their separate ways – because the industry hadn’t advanced as quickly as they had expected.

Every six months and in comparably simple layout, H2Tec had reported about the activities in the H2 and fuel cell industry on no more than 20 pages. A lot has happened since then: Circulation increased to 4,500 and the time between issues was cut in half. The number of pages grew as well – first to 32 and meanwhile to 56.

After ten years, HZwei’s editors can now rightly claim to have created the only well-established long-running trade publication on hydrogen and fuel cells across the German-speaking region.

The new issue (see cover on the right) was just published on July 1st, 2016!
