Proponents of hydrogen and fuel cell solutions had something to look forward to at COP23, the 23rd UN climate conference, which took place in Bonn, Germany, Nov. 6 through 17 last year. Until the beginning of December, the Deutsches Museum featured a special exhibition on “Hydrogen – The unlimited energy source,” supported by the Hydrogeit Verlag publishing house. Additionally, some of the buses transporting attendees around the grounds during the summit were CleanShuttle battery, hydrogen and hybrid versions from all over Germany.
It has been four years since the start of the four German Electromobility Showcase projects. In 2012, they became the follow-up to the eight Electromobility Model Regions, across which electric engine technologies had been researched and developed. Before this demonstration and market preparation stage will ultimately be concluded at the end of 2016, the projects were discussed during an official closing conference
It was almost four years ago that the subsidy program Showcase Electromobility (Schaufenster Elektromobilität) was launched. A lot has happened since then. To present an overview of all the different projects carried out during the three-year run time of the program, the four Showcase regions will organize a conference to present the program results on April 14 and 15, 2016. On behalf of the federal government, the organizers scheduled a one-and-a-half-day conference, which takes place just after the New Mobility (April 12 to 13) on the Leipzig trade show premises
