picture German Government Launches FC Subsidy Program
On Aug. 1, 2016, the heating industry got the certainty they wanted with regard to the future policy framework for state-of-the-art fuel cell heating systems: The German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) announced two new subsidy programs, one providing an investment grant for fuel cell heating systems and one for optimizing heating … Read more
picture Financial Support for Efficient Heating Systems
Around 40% of the final energy in Germany is consumed by the building sector. About 85% of it is used for heating and hot water preparation. However, many heating boilers both in the private and commercial sector are outdated. Installing an efficient fuel cell heating system could save a great deal of energy and reduce … Read more
picture Heliocentris Files for Bankruptcy
As expected, German Heliocentris Energy Solutions filed for bankruptcy at the beginning of October 2016. After there had been a delay of several days before the required quarterly figures were finally published, an ad hoc notification was sent out on Oct. 11, 2016, saying that the management board of the Berlin-based fuel cell manufacturer would … Read more
picture Heliocentris – Profile of a Listed Fuel Cell Company
Heliocentris was founded in 1995 as a supplier of teaching materials. After a successful takeover bid for P21 in 2011, the company headquartered in Berlin, Germany, diversified its business activities and has since expanded its product portfolio to include hybrid power solutions for energy management, particularly for customers in the telecommunications sector. The expressed aim … Read more
picture Tesla: Nothing More Than Visions?
With great fanfare, Tesla head Elon Musk announced what he had devised as a second masterplan. The corporation is not only to produce battery for its Powerpack and Powerwall, but should also supply the added solar modules (takeover of sister company SolarCity is in progress). The new plan additionally includes aims to design several other … Read more
picture FuelCell Energy: Decision on Beacon Falls
The final decision on which company will be awarded the contract for the 63 MW Beacon Falls project should have already been made by the end of July 2016, but has since been moved to Sept. 5 and then to Oct. 26. The delays seem to be the result of additional bids that include wind … Read more
picture Eco-Bonus Not (Yet) Appealing
Critics of the economic incentive for electric cars have had their I-told-you-so moment for now: The “eco-bonus” has been attracting little interest so far. Within two months (from September 5th, 2016), the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Export Control received a mere 3,027 applications. Registration figures, however, paint a slightly more optimistic picture of … Read more
picture Immense Potential of Fuel Cell Railcars
Trains running on hydrogen could be used in the future as an alternative to diesel-driven railcars on non-electrified parts of the railroad system. Although railroad cars with fuel cell-battery engines still cost up to a million euros more than today’s diesel models, the efficiency gains of fuel cells and the lower maintenance requirements could lead … Read more
picture Quo Vadis DWV?
Ever experienced a similar situation? You’ve been following the same principles for years and you always think you’re doing exactly the right thing. But then one day you realize that something doesn’t feel right and you need to ask yourself: Have you strayed from your path or have the circumstances changed? … Read more
picture DWV Celebrates 20th Anniversary in Berlin
1996 was the founding year of the German Hydrogen Association (DWV). After now more than 20 years of actively contributing to the development of the German and European H2 and fuel cell industry and a change in name, the members of the German Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, their guests and some of the founders … Read more
picture Phil Doran Crosses the Channel
ITM Power has appointed a new managing director to oversee business activities in Germany. The British company announced in mid-September 2016 that Phil Doran would leave Frankfurt and Calum McConnell would take over management of ITM Power. McConnell worked for 19 years at Parker Hannifin, a large US machinery manufacturer, in field such as renewable … Read more
picture New Hydrogen Europe Board
Hydrogen Europe has a new board. The European hydrogen association, formerly known as New Energy World Industry Grouping (NEW-IG) until it changed its name in November 2015, elected three new board members at the end of this June. Its chair has since been Raphaël Schoentgen, director of research and technologies at French energy supply company … Read more
pictureSeventh H2Congress in Berlin
The German Hydrogen Congress is gradually turning into the most important event of the German hydrogen and fuel cell industry. Held in the Berlin office of North Rhine-Westphalia for two half days on July 5 and 6, 2016, it attracted as many as around 200 attendees this year. Compared to the last H2Congress at the … Read more
picture 21st World Hydrogen Energy Conference in Zaragoza
From June 13 to 16, the World Hydrogen Energy Conference (WHEC 2016) took place in Spanish Zaragoza. It was the twenty-first time that hydrogen experts from all around the globe met to discuss the potential of H2– and fuel cell technology as well as power-to-gas. In the words of Javier Brey, this year’s WHEC chair … Read more

H2-international subscription gets cheaper

New price structure in 2017

Subscribers of H2-international e-journal only have to pay USD 105 / 96 Euro per year in the future – instead of USD 144 / 135 Euro (excl. VAT).

Therefore, companies have to pay a bit more for their listing in the business directory:

Basic entry: USD 215 / 196 Euro per year incl. subscription

Premium entry: USD 395 / 359 Euro per year incl. subscription & logo in the e-journal, on the homepage and in the newsletter

But if you book a new listing before end of the year you will get the former cheaper prices.
