Hydrogen as one means to reach zero carbon societies is a hot topic today. Germany is investing heavily in research, most recently announcing a new hydrogen competence center in Chemnitz. Hydrogen use for mobility purposes is also being explored by a research cluster in northern Germany.

In this DJW "Hiru no Kai", we will look at the megatrends and how hydrogen can contribute to making societies carbon neutral. Our expert speaker, Mr. Ferdinand Spannan, will touch upon various applications of hydrogen in mobility, the industrial sector and the general electricity and gas grid, and explain what testing and measurement standards and applications can support this. He will also give an overview over current projects and interest groups as well as current standards and regulations.

We are very much looking forward to meeting with you in person for this event!
