Refuelling will take place at permanent hydrogen refuelling stations and at the H2moves mobile refuelling station. The concept includes seminars and ride and drive events for decision makers and public, PR and communication activities.
– Our ambition is to gain custoer acceptance so that the cars you can see here today can be seen everywhere tomorrow, Marin Svensson said as a conclution.
Strong representation from H2moves Scandinavia at Energy Day
The Energy Day was part of the EU Sustainable Energy Week. H2moves Scandinavia had strong representation. Dr. Ulrich Buenger, project coordinator, gave a presentation of the project. Björn Aronsson, from project partner Hydrogen Sweden, participated in a paneldiscussion.
The "Let Hydrogen Move You!" event, co-organized by the European Hydrogen Association, EHA, Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking, FCH JU, and Hydrogen, fuel cells and Electro-mobility in European Regions, HyER, presented key stakeholders in the main demonstration locations and their experiences how hydrogen is moving their communities to a low carbon transport and energy future.
A fuel cell electric and battery electric vehicle Drive & Ride complemented the event and was a unique chance to test drive more than 10 different zero emission car models just in front of the Belgian Royal Palace. The Drive & Ride is part of the EUSEW Clean Mob partnership of the EUSEW, EHA and AVERE providing clean transport in Brussels throughout the EU Sustainable Energy Week.
