On the occasion of the trade fair for new mobility and energy: "WORLD OF ENERGY SOLUTIONS", the Clean Energy Partnership announced the locations for hydrogen refuelling stations in Baden-Württemberg to be built as part of the 50 refuelling station programme by the end of 2015. At the opening of the fair in Stuttgart
Dr. Klaus Bonhoff, Managing Director (Chair) of NOW National Organisation Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology, as well as Franz Loogen, Managing Director of e-mobil BW, presented State Environmental Minister Franz Untersteller with a map of the federal state listing the refuelling station locations. Dr. Bonhoff thanked Minister Untersteller for his personal commitment in the development of the refuelling station infrastructure in Baden-Württemberg: "We need hydrogen and fuel cell technology for the energy changeover also in the transport area. Federal and state political collaboration with industry is essential so that hydrogen mobility can enter the commercial market." Franz Loogen, representing e-mobil BW Baden-Württemberg in the CEP, highlighted the excellent cooperation of all participating companies.
The new locations in Baden-Württemberg are part of the expansion programme for hydrogen refuelling stations, agreed upon in 2012 by industry representatives with the Federal Transport Ministry. Under these plans 50 refuelling stations will by the end of next year form the basis for a nationwide network and thus achieve an important requirement for the market introduction of the first car models over the coming years. At the same time the refuelling stations serve as an important test field for innovative technologies for safe and speedy hydrogen refuelling. The federal government supports the 50 refuelling station programme within the National Innovation Programme for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology (NIP).

Berlin’s new multi-energy filling station strengthens expansion of the network for hydrogen and electric mobility.
With the official opening of a new multi-energy filling station at the Berlin Exhibition Grounds, the oil company TOTAL Deutschland GmbH and its partners Daimler AG, Linde AG and RWE Effizienz GmbH have made a further contribution to the expansion of the network for future-oriented mobility. The multi-energy filling station on Jafféstrasse can supply vehicles of all drive types with energy: traditional internal combustion engines as well as battery-electric vehicles and electric vehicles that generate their electricity from a fuel cell using hydrogen. The filling station also has a hydrogen pump and a fast-charge station for electric vehicles.
The Parliamentary State Secretary at Germany’s Ministry for Transport and Digital Infrastructure, Katherina Reiche, and Berlin’s Senator for Economics, Technology and Research, Cornelia Yzer, opened the filling station, which is also supported by the National Organization for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology (NOW), the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP), and the SCHNELL-LADEN-BERLIN (Fast Charge Berlin) initiative of the international Schaufenster Elektromobilität (electric mobility showcase) in Berlin-Brandenburg.

Berlin, 31 august 2014 - Despite some dark clouds in the sky, numerous visitors take a look at two days (30 and 31/08/2014) behind the scenes of the Federal Government and Ministries in Berlin. At the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) was also the CEP on site and invited interested visitors to take a test drive with hydrogen-powered cars. Audi Q5 HFC, the B-Class F-CELL from Mercedes-Benz, a Honda FCX Clarity, a Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell, a Ford Focus fuel cell and a Toyota FCHV-adv were present. For the visitors a great opportunity to experience the quiet and low-emission cars of the future. Of course, the visitors could also take a seat behind the wheel and received from our knowledgeable experts lots of information about our fuel cell cars. The next "Open Days Federal Government" in Berlin will take place in summer 2015 (precise dates to be announced).
