Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Energy Summit

Date: 4th March 2020 - 5th March 2020 Location: Lisbon - Portugal

Maximizing commercial opportunities and partnerships in the renewable hydrogen & fuel cells industry

We are very excited to announce that the 4th edition of ACI’s Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Energy Summit will be taking place in Lisbon, Portugal on the 4-5th March 2020. The two day event will bring together key industry stakeholders from all facets of the hydrogen industry to discuss the required economical and infrastructural innovations for a sustainable future energy carrier. The key discussions will involve monetisation, latest technology implementations, material optimisation, production and transportation with case studies presented from across Europe.

The main objectives of the industry are to:

  • Reduce the production cost of hydrogen and fuel cell systems
  • Increase the electrical efficiency and the durability of the different fuel cells used
  • Use H2 to support renewable energy source integration and the energy transition

With incredible advances recently in hydrogen it is the best time to explore this booming industry. Join us in Lisbon to discuss the latest innovations, exciting initiatives and the upcoming economic opportunities.

The Foundation for the Development of New Hydrogen Technologies in Aragon is a private, not-for-profit entity, created to promote the use of hydrogen as an energy vector. Promoted by the Government of Aragon it was founded in 2003 with the support of the administration, industry and the main society actors form different sectors of activity.
Twenty-eight entities, research centres and companies support the launch of this initiative,which is gaining new support year after year, which today has become a board made up of 70 members of key importance for the Aragonese economy. With the support of the board members, the Foundation works day by day for the development of new hydrogen
technologies integrated with renewable energies and the promotion of Aragon´s involvement in economic activities relating to the use of hydrogen as an energy vector. The mission of the Foundation is to carry out the organization, management and execution of a wide range of actions with the purpose of generating, storing and transporting hydrogen, for its use in fuel cells, in transport applications or for the generation of distributed energy. In this way it aims
to foment research, technological development, cogeneration and industrial adaptation, contributing to industrial modernization and improved competitiveness.
