CLEAN ENERGY PARTNERSHIP

Hydrogen mobility in Germany

Thomas Bystry, Chairman of the CEP Thomas Bystry, Chairman of the CEP

In 2002, we set out on our mission as visionaries and lateral thinkers. There were no vehicles, filling stations, or logistics. There was, however, a real challenge: is emissions-free mobility possible as part of a sustainable energy transition?

Our answer: yes, with hydrogen and the fuel cell!

Fortune favours the brave. Over time we became researchers, test pilots and trailblazers. Today our vision has become a reality: fuel-cell vehicles are on the road, the infrastructure is growing, and hydrogen production is up and running. We have shown that it works! We ARE moving with hydrogen.

TASKS

For things to get better, something has to change. In the case of the energy transition, a lot has to change. A quick reminder: the goal is to reduce CO2 emissions by 80-95 percent, by 2050 (compared to 1990)!

We have come a long way by joining forces, and have overcome great challenges as a team. Our goal has always been the ‘mobility of the future’. Today, our goal is that one day we will no longer need the CEP; that hydrogen and fuel cell mobility will be perfectly natural. The future is now!

Poised on the threshold to market establishment, we face new questions to which we will find answers. Which is why in Phase IV (2017-2023), the CEP is opening itself new modes of transport, accelerating the linking of sectors, and developing business models for hydrogen production using renewable energy. The current project phase focuses on the road capability of high-performance vehicles, quick and safe refuelling, and the systems capability of accompanying technologies for optimum production, storage and logistics.
