Source: Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and EnergyA digital kick-off event with more than 1,000 participants is taking place today to mark the start of the hydrogen research network founded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. The aim is to underline the importance of networking business, research and politics on issues relating to the generation, storage, distribution and cross-sectoral use of hydrogen in order to accelerate the transfer of innovative hydrogen technologies to the market. The research network is an element of the National Hydrogen Strategy important impetus for research and innovation policy in the hydrogen sector with a focus on application relevance and practical transfer. State Secretary Andreas Feicht: “As the energy carrier of the future, hydrogen is a central component for climate protection and for a successful energy transition. With the National Hydrogen Strategy, we have paved the way for Germany to play a pioneering role in hydrogen technologies worldwide. With the tried and tested instruments of energy research, the Federal Government is making an important contribution to accelerating the market ramp-up of hydrogen technologies. The new hydrogen research network of the BMWi brings together the right actors from business, research and politics and offers an important forum for the necessary networking. ”The energy research networks are an element of the 7th energy research program of the Federal Government under the auspices of the BMWi. The hydrogen research network is funded by the BMWi. Due to the cross-sectoral and cross-departmental importance of the topic of hydrogen, the BMVI and the BMBF are also involved. Representatives of the federal ministries, the National Hydrogen Council and the Advisory Board of the National Organization for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology (NOW) as well as industry representatives and Industry representatives from the first real hydrogen laboratory for the energy transition, “WEST COAST 100”, have their say. In two panels, potentials and future developments in the hydrogen sector are discussed and strategies for innovation transfer are discussed. This also marks the start of the consultation process on research strategies for hydrogen technologies in the 7th Energy Research Program. Members of the hydrogen research network can participate online in the consultations for a funding call from the BMWi, which is to be published this year. The agenda can be found here (PDF, 3 MB).
