The event is free of charge but the registration is required.
This forum aims to promote a meeting of the supply and demand of innovative hydrogen and fuel cell solutions in transport systems in the context of emissions-free mobility. The event will bring together suppliers of technology solutions, industry, transport management entities and fleet owners, urban planners, land managers and decision makers - among others - promoting mutual updating on opportunities and challenges related to the use of hydrogen. Hydrogen ecosystems, such as production, storage, distribution, refueling and end-use, are presented through innovative pilot projects carried out in the context of European projects and strategies.
The forum "Hydrogen-based Low Carbon Transport and Mobility Solutions" aims to present functional options in the area of hydrogen and fuel cells demonstrated in European cities and regions, present innovative technological solutions and discuss methodologies to accelerate the deployment and implementation of hydrogen and technologies in the mobility and transport sectors.
The event also aims to support public authorities, including those responsible for mobility and transport, the integration of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies into their investment, development, partnership and sustainability plans. It is also intended to align local and regional mobility and transport policies with European strategies for sustainable mobility, decarbonisation, energy and hydrogen, thus attracting innovation, investment and capacity building for these sectors.
Cities, regions, Hydrogen and fuel cell associations, investors, industry, mobility and other stakeholders with a keen interest in the hydrogen sector and its outcomes and interested to learn more about the local Hydrogen Clusters and willing to develop partnerships.

The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) is a unique public private partnership supporting research, technological development and demonstration (RTD) activities in fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologies in Europe. Its aim is to accelerate the market introduction of these technologies, realizing their potential as an instrument in achieving a carbon-clean energy system. Fuel cells, as an efficient conversion technology, and hydrogen, as a clean energy carrier, have a great potential to help fight carbon dioxide emissions, to reduce dependence on hydrocarbons and to contribute to economic growth.
The objective of the FCH JU is to bring these benefits to Europeans through a concentrated effort from all sectors.
Hydrogen Europe, European Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, representing more than 120 industry companies, research organizations and national associations. Hydrogen Europe partners with the European Commission in the innovation program Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU). We promote hydrogen as the enabler of a zero emission society.
HyER is an association of cities and regions working on hydrogen, fuel cells and electro-mobility in European regions. HyER’s two main objectives are to provide an effective platform for collaboration between cities and regions at European level and to coordinate the voice of cities and regions at EU level on these topics.

Aberdeen is Scotland's third most populous city, one of 32 local government council areas and the United Kingdom's 37th most populous built-up area. City's key industry and public sector players have joined forces to fund and deliver the world's largest demonstration of hydrogen fuel cell buses in Aberdeen, realizing an aspiration to become a world-leading city for low carbon technology. By establishing a state-of-the-art hydrogen re-fuelling station, Scotland's first commercial-scale hydrogen production and bus re-fuelling station includes hydrogen production through electrolysis.
Groningen is the hotspot of applied sciences for businesses and innovations in energy. Innovation in green hydrogen production, conversion, storage, transport and distribution can and will be a main areas. Municipality of Groningen has the ambition to become carbon neutral by 2035, both hydrogen for mobility and district heating are important developments to contribute to this ambition. The Dutch climate agreement is a national cooperation of local and national governments, energy companies, all kind of energy users and NGO’s. They work on a program to cut CO2 emissions in the Netherlands with 49% in 2030 towards a (near) zero emission target in 2050.
The city of Pau is a commune on the northern edge of the Pyrenees, located in the region of Nouvelle-Aquitaine. The city and the region itself are committed to energy transition. Pau’s choice of hydrogen as a zero-emission solution is a tremendous boost to the energy transition of fuels. Communities are fully aware of environmental issues related to transportation and in particular the mobility of people. Pau has distinguished itself by its strong choice and the innovative character of this zero emissions city. The city is keep demonstrating the technical and- economic feasibility of green mobility combining improvement of quality of life in urban areas with the high level of service expected from public transport.
