CLEAN ENERGY PARTNERSHIP

MOBILITY IN THE ERA OF CLIMATE PROTECTION

Climate change concerns us all. Among our most urgent tasks is reducing greenhouse gases to stop global warming. The European Union and G8 members have jointly agreed the target of reducing CO2 emissions by 80 percent by 2050. To achieve this, an estimated 95 percent of road traffic will have to be switched to alternative drives. In the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP), companies are working together to achieve this goal – using hydrogen (H2) as an alternative fuel.

What is the CEP?

The Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) was established in December 2002 as a joint initiative of government and industry lead-managed by the German Ministry of Transport and Industry. Its aim is to test the suitability of hydrogen as a fuel. Since 2008, the CEP has been a lighthouse project of the National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology Innovation Programme (NIP), implemented by NOW (National Organisation for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology) (http://www.now-gmbh.de/de/).

20 industry partners – Air Liquide, Bohlen & Doyen, BMW, Daimler, EnBW, Ford, GM/Opel, H2 Mobility, Hamburger Hochbahn, Honda, Hyundai, Linde, OMVShell, Siemens, Stuttgarter Strassenbahnen SSB, Total, Toyota, Volkswagen and Westfalen – are involved in the CEP. Experts from these companies work together in councils that transcend branch boundaries, to pave the way for the market launch of hydrogen vehicles.
