The quiet life is over. That much is clear, even to the German hydrogen and fuel cell association DWV. Growing interest in hydrogen and fuel cells has some wanting to turn the organization into a powerful industrial body.
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.
