This blog is a project by Sven Geitmann, founder and owner of publishing house Hydrogeit Verlag. Both the H2-international Blog and the H2-international e-journal contain articles which are also published in the German magazine HZwei, hence the focus is on German H2- & FC-activities but there are also many texts about the worldwide fuel cell activities.

The articles online in the blog are short versions of the longer ones, which are published in the e-journal. Hence only the subscribers of the e-journal can read all the interesting details.

EUREC, the Association of Renewable Energy Research Centers, promotes European research and education activities for the renewable energy sector, and supports the development of innovative technologies to enable the transition to a sustainable energy system. The organisation was founded in 1991 as European Economic Interest Grouping (E.E.I.G.).

EUREC’s members are prominent research and development (R&D) groups spread across Europe, operating in all renewable energy technologies. Our members also conduct research into supporting technologies such as energy efficiency, storage, distribution and integration, and undertake studies to evaluate the social and economic aspects surrounding renewable energy.

Apart from work in policy development and education and training (through the European Masters programmes), EUREC is involved – to varying levels from communication to coordination or advisory – in numerous European co-funded projects centred on renewable technologies. These technologies revolve around a wide array of technologies (wind, biomass, small hydro, marine, geothermal, photovoltaics, solar thermal electricity, and solar thermal heating and cooling).

EUREC is a partner of the European Technology and Innovation Platform Bioenergy – Support of Renewable Fuels and Advanced Bioenergy Stakeholders (ETIP-B2022-2025) project that aims at triggering collaborative efforts of stakeholders from research to innovation to implementation in the field of renewable fuels and bioenergy.

• A pre-event informal introduction the evening before the conference
• A minimum of five hours’ networking built into the two day conference agenda
• A networking grid which enables you to make your target contacts aware you are looking for them
• The option to join either social drinks or dinner during the evening of Day One
• ACI’s on-site team will assist you in locating your hard-to-find target contacts & make face-to-face introductions

Of course, if there is anybody you are unable to meet over the two days, ACI’s event team will do their best to initiate contact after the event.
