H2-international Changes Appearance

The publishing house Hydrogeit Verlag is continuously working on H2-international to optimize the appearance of the e-journal on hydrogen and fuel cells. The September issue was the first version with a completely new look – and it was the first printed edition specifically published for the Hydrogen + Fuel Cells NORTH AMERICA. The upcoming editions (October, November, December 2017) will also be released in this new look.

From 2018, we will present the e-journal H2-international quarterly – four times a year – with around 60 pages. Two editions will also be printed. The H2-international newsletter will continue with its monthly appearance.

This allows us to minimize the price: A subscription costs only 40 USD / 35 Euro per year from now on.
