The leap over the big pond has been made. Tobias Renz Fair and Deutsche Messe organized the first Hydrogen + Fuel Cells North America, which took place in Las Vegas, Nevada, Sept. 10 through 13, 2017. The hydrogen and fuel cell trade show ran alongside Solar Power International and Energy Storage International in one large hall at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. It attracted many interested visitors.
2017 is the first year Deutsche Messe and Tobias Renz Fair, the organizer of the annual joint Hydrogen + Fuel Cells + Batteries booth in Hanover, Germany, will manage a stateside group exhibit called Hydrogen + Fuel Cells North America, the US counterpart of Germany’s industry meeting. From Sept. 10 through 13, the most important solar trade show and the largest energy storage event in North America – Solar Power International boasting 700 exhibitors and 20,000 attendees and Energy Storage International, respectively – will run in parallel at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
This year will be the twenty-third in the history of the joint booth Hydrogen + Fuel Cells + Batteries at the Hannover trade show (April 24 through 28). And since the industry meeting has proved to be a good networking platform, Tobias Renz FAIR and Deutsche Messe will also organize a similar booth at the American trade show this year. The Hydrogen + Fuel Cells North America will take place from Sept. 10 to 13 during the Solar Power International in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
What furthered my interest in hydrogen was a presentation in 1989 by Joachim Gretz, the head of the EU’s Joint Research Center in Ispra, Italy, about the then running Quebec project. I had already been interested in the technology many years prior to that event: I can still remember clearly how the board chair of German Shell, Johannes Welbergen, told me during a conversation that H2 was the future for which we still had to wait
Connectivity and digitalization – these were the main topics of the International Automobile Exhibition (IAA), which took place in Frankfurt a. M., Germany, from September 17 to 27, 2015. Both the media uplink to the entire globe and digital premium offers appeared much more important than clean engine technologies. The announcements did include much on electric cars
