It’s been around three years since publisher Springer Verlag released the first edition of its guidebook “Wasserstoff und Brennstoffzellen – Technologien und Marktperspektiven”, written by Johannes Töpler and Jochen Lehmann. In late 2017, an extended and updated version hit the shelves, again comprehensively informing readers about hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. Taking account of recent debates, this second edition in German grew by more than 80 pages to include a new chapter on hydrogen storage in underground caverns and one about power-to-X. To make up for the somewhat high price tag, it comes with a non-transferrable coupon that a buyer can use to download the e-book version.
It was exactly last Christmas that the Springer publishing company started to offer a new specialist book on Hydrogen and Fuel Cells. The book takes a broad approach toward the topic, including everything from H2 generation to future fuel cell applications. The editors are Dr. Johannes Töpler, Chair of the German Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (DWV), and Professor Jochen Lehmann, also from DWV’s management board. The industry professionals asked renowned experts to enrich their 281-page book with chapters full of know-how and expertise on their specialist subjects.
