(Including pre-conference drinks reception on the evening 15th November 17:30 – 19:30 )

This is an extremely exciting time for the industry with major announcements on an almost daily basis. Although some may say we have been waiting for this for some time I feel we can truly say that for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells

The Time really is NOW

This well-established and highly respected event now in its 17th year, looked at both the Hydrogen Economy and  the range of applications for Fuel Cells. Sessions will focus on the Production, Distribution and Use of Hydrogen. Market demand for hydrogen will cover Transport Applications as well as Remote and Stationary Power.

The event was a sell out for exhibitors and delegates with over 380 registered there was standing room only in the Keynote session .

 Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you are interested in being involved in the 2022 event – date still to be confirmed
