A record breaking number of 160 exhibitors from 25 countries will demonstrate their latest technologies on an area of 5.000m² at Europe’s largest hydrogen, fuel cells and battery exhibition. One of the main topics of the Group Exhibit will be the storage of renewable energies produced by wind and photovoltaic.

Power to Gas energy storage
ITM Power plc, South Yorckshire, B66 shows an electrolyzer for the flexible production of hydrogen through electrolysis (Power to Gas). Hereby power from renewable energies will be converted into hydrogen or alternatively methane. Hydrogen can then be used for fueling fuel cell vehicles and methane can be fed into natural gas grids. For this project ITM Power has been shortlisted to win the HERMES AWARD 2016.

Power and heat produced at home
The Initiative Brennstoffzelle (German fuel cell initiative), Allendorf (Eder), E51 shows the latest fuel cell heating systems of seven manufactures: Buders, Elcore, Hexis, Senertec, Solidpower, Vaillant and Viessmann. The companies EnBW, E.ON, EWE, MVV and Wingas will showcase a model of the future energy supply through fuel cells, renewable energies and virtual power plants.

Hydrogen mobility lifts off
The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt, DLR), Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics, Stuttgart D66 is currently developing the worldwide first four-seater passenger aircraft HY4 that is powered solely by a hydrogen fuel cell battery system. The cruising speed is 145km/h, with a range of around 1.000km. This aircraft demonstrates the feasibility to fly and transport passengers with hydrogen. The first flight of the HY4 is planned for summer 2016. A model of the HY4 will be shown at the booth of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), E65.

Hydrogen-Bike shows new ways into electro mobility
The Linde Group, München, B71 shows a pedelec (bicycle with supporting electric motor) powered by a fuel cell. The fuel cell replaces a battery and uses hydrogen to produce additional power in order to support the driver. The drive system enables a range of 100km, with an amount of only 34 grams stored hydrogen. Refueling the hydrogen cylinder only takes about 5min.

Target: Hydrogen filling stations everywhere in Germany
For the first time H2 Mobility Deutschland GmbH & Co.KG, Berlin, B56 is part of the Group Exhibit H2+FC+BAT. H2 Mobility is a joint venture between six industrial partners. Their action plan envisages a set-up of 100 hydrogen filling stations over the next few years and a Germany-wide network of 400 hydrogen stations by 2023.

Fuel cell vehicles and hydrogen fueling on site
On a 15.000m² Ride + Drive outdoor area interested visitors can test drive fuel cell vehicles of the companies Daimler (F-Cell B-Class), Toyota (Mirai), Honda (FCX Clarity) and Hyundai (ix35 Fuel Cell). The vehicles will be fueled on site daily (11:00, 14:00, 17:00) at the mobile hydrogen filling station of Linde.

Information on site in two forums
Visitors have the possibility to inform themselves on site in two forum areas within the Group Exhibit H2+FC+BAT in hall 27. The moderated interviews in the Public Forum (C66) and presentations in the Technical Forum (B38) will additionally be live streamed online and will also be available after the show on our website
