picture New Priorities in Hanover
For many years, heating systems based on fuel cells had played a central role on the joint booth Hydrogen + Fuel Cells + Batteries at Hannover Messe. This time, however, the Fuel Cell Initiative, IBZ, was nowhere to be found, not because there was no interest in the technology, but because it has been made … Read more
picture Hydrogen Council Founded
At the beginning of 2017, several businesses joined forces to advance the energy transformation and spread the vision of a hydrogen economy. On Jan. 18, 2017, during the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the heads of thirteen globally operating businesses held a press conference to announce the launch of the Hydrogen Council. The council’s … Read more

picture Gummert Leaves SOLIDpower
“Everything has progressed at a much faster pace than I expected,” Guido Gummert, formerly CEO of SOLIDpower, had told the Aachener Nachrichten in early 2017. What he meant was the rapid turnaround at Ceramic Fuel Cells after it filed for bankruptcy in March 2015. After SOLIDpower took over Ceramic Fuel Cells, business recovered fast, but … Read more
picture MCFC Power Plant in Hotel Use
After last year’s project of a 1.4 MW fuel cell power plant in Mannheim, energy supplier E.ON established a partnership with the Radisson Blu Hotel in Frankfurt, Germany, in mid-February 2017 to operate yet another industrial-grade fuel cell there. In addition to its distinct architectural features, the hotel is now to be equipped with a … Read more
picture Energy Storage Needs Political Backing
Sector integration, flexibility, level playing field – these were the buzzwords during the Energy Storage from March 14 to 16, 2017, both at the trade show exhibits and during the conferences. They made it unmistakably clear that the main issues were no longer questions in basic research, but energy policy, competition and marketing. … Read more
picture Green Gas Replaces Oil
The heating industry continues to move forward with establishing natural gas as the go-to source for the energy supply of residential buildings, while increasingly adding efficient fuel cell technologies and eco-gas to the mix.
