At the beginning of July 2019, the HyStarter tender was decided. Nine regions have been awarded the contract and will receive support for their entry into hydrogen and fuel cell technology as part of the HyLands overarching funding project. In the future, their concepts will also serve as a blueprint to inspire other regions.
The real laboratories are now to give fresh impetus to new energy technologies. Greater room for manoeuvre in regional projects should enable local business concepts to be tested first and then implemented on a larger scale nationwide. There’s a lot of interest in it: By the beginning of April 2019, project outlines could be submitted and, as has been confirmed by various parties, the call was oversubscribed several times.
