Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Energy Summit


Madrid, Spain

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

Our Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Energy Summit will be taking place in Madrid, Spain on the 6th & 7th February 2019. 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 technologies implementations, material optimisation, production and transportation.

The main objectives of the industry are to:
  • Reduce the production cost of fuel cell systems
  • Increase the electrical efficiency and the durability of the different fuel cells used
  • Use H2 to support renewable energy source integration
The sector has involved already an important number of energy end-use agents, from electric vehicles to power plants.


Summit topics for discussion include:

  • Overview of the actual hydrogen and fuel cells market
  • Opportunities presented by EU H2 policy and regulations
  • Transitioning energy systems through sector integration
  • The challenge of cost for technology deployment
  • Decarbonising energy-use industries with hydrogen
  • Increasing domestic fuel cell efficiency
  • Regional green hydrogen initiatives
  • Automotive applications of hydrogen fuel cells
  • Decarbonising heavy logistics industries
