160 exhibitors from 20 countries will participate at Europe’s largest hydrogen, fuel cells and battery exhibition on an area of 5.000m². One of the main topics of the Group Exhibit will be the storage of renewable energies, e.g. from photovoltaic and wind plants.

Moving with Hydrogen – shared presentation by CEP, H2 MOBILITY and NOW
For the first time, Clean Energy Partnership, H2 Mobility, Berlin and NOW National Organization Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Technology, Berlin will exhibit together at the booth B 59 and inform about the following topics:

Germany-wide Premiere of Hyundai NEXO:
The Hyundai NEXO can be seen and driven for the first time at a German trade fair. The range with one tank filling is 750 kilometers, the vehicle will be in trade from Summer 2018. Other fuel cell cars at the Ride + Drive outdoor area will be the Toyota Mirai and the Honda Clarity.

Mercedes-Benz GLC F-Cell – Fuel hydrogen and charge power:
The GLC F-Cell combines for the first time worldwide a Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle with a large additional lithium-ion battery, which can be conveniently charged using plug-in technology. With 4,4 kg hydrogen on board, it’s range can reach approx. 400 km. The lithium ion battery increases the range of the GLC F-Cell around 50 km additionally. The GLC F-Cell can be seen at the booth B 59.

Setup of hydrogen infrastructure in Germany
To reach a nation-wide hydrogen station network, the companies Air Liquide, Daimler, Linde, OMV, Shell and TOTAL came together and founded the H2 Mobility. Their first goal, by 2019, is to operate 100 hydrogen stations in the metropolitan areas, as well as along main roads and motorways. Experts will also inform about the current state of the battery charging infrastructure.

Hydrogen production in MW range
Power from renewable energies can be transformed emission free through electrolysis. The produced hydrogen can further be used in industrial applications, e.g. in steel production or for the refueling of fuel cell vehicles. 20 exhibitors will show and inform about electrolysis technologies at their booth.

Alkaline electrolysis system from Japan
For the first time, Asahi Kasei Europe, Düsseldorf, C 69, will be represented at the Group Exhibit. Based on the chloralkali electrolysis, Asahi Kasei has developed an alkaline water electrolysis system with a high adaptability to fluctuating power input from renewable energy sources. Moreover, the system features and enables high electricity-to-hydrogen conversion efficiency and size-adaptability for large scale operations up to 10 MW.

Faurecia presents solutions for fuel cell vehicles
Another premiere at group exhibit has Faurecia, Nanterre, France, C 76, being one of the leading automotive supplier worldwide. Faurecia will inform about the high pressure storage of hydrogen as well as the system integration of fuel cell stacks in vehicles.

MobFuelH2 – the mobile energy supply center
Anleg, Wesel and the hydrogen and fuel cell center (ZBT), Duisburg, B 77, will show together a mobile energy supply center for electricity, hydrogen and light. Application areas are amongst other things the short term provision for large amounts of electrical power, e.g. for major operations by the police or rescue.

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 presentations in the Technical Forum (F 77) and the moderated interviews in the Public Forum (C 66) will additionally be live streamed online and will also be available after the show on our website.

Highlights in the Forum:
