CEP news: Hydrogen – Join the Movement!

This section contains all the latest news about CEP, along with important dates. The CEP is active and present wherever the topic of "hydrogen as a fuel" is or should be relevant – by making expert contributions and providing direct, local support for events. You will also find comprehensive news and events that may be of interest to you.

Energy Observer makes a stopover in Hamburg

Energy Observer, the first hydrogen vessel around the world with no greenhouse gas emissions or fine particles, will leave the Port of Amsterdam on the 21st of April to continue its Odyssey in Northern Europe. Led by Victorien Erussard, founding captain, and Jérôme Delafosse, expedition leader, the boat will make its 36th stopover from the 26th of April to the 5th of May 2019 in Hamburg, special guest of the Port which will celebrate several centuries of intense activities with the presence of all the economic actors of the region.

CEP at Hannover Messe 2019

From 1st to 5th April, the Clean Energy Partnership and H2 Mobility will host a joint stand providing information about the latest research and development results in the field of hydrogen mobility (Hall 27, B55).  

The CEP will also host a Ride & Drive at the outdoor exhibition area in front of Hall 27, where interested parties can test the drive of the future. Several fuel cell vehicles are available for a test drive - the Hyundai Nexo, Toyota Mirai and Mercedes Benz GLC-F-CELL.

NIP-General Assembly 2018

Our CEP Chairman Thomas Bystry also reports on mobility in the heavy load sector and standardization processes in an international context.

The NIP General Assembly provides information on the current state of the funding program, on the results of projects that have already been completed, and on EU-funded projects in Germany. By 2026, the Innovation Program will help to accelerate the ramp-up of forward-looking hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, increase product market maturity, and ensure continuity in research and development.

Stuttgart 18.09.2018

F-Cell 2018

On the 18th/19th of September the F-Cell 2018 will take place in Stuttgart - the impulse event for hydrogen and fuel cells. The CEP is going to have a round table:

Tuesday, September 18, 2018
Wednesday, September 19, 2018
Joerg Starr, AUDI AG and Thomas Bystry, Shell Deutschland Oil GmbH & Chairman of the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP)
The Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) reports on the status quo of hydrogen mobility, achievements to date, and challenges currently being tackled in the working groups. Some of the industry partnership’s successes include the evaluation of vehicle and system operation data, the development of a uniform refuelling standard, and the introduction of an authorisation process for customers, including card and payment systems. Among other aspects, the roundtable will discuss standardisation processes for new modes of transport, the design of refuelling protocols for heavy goods transport, and the creation of an ‘RCS (Regulations, Codes, Standards) Roadmap’. The roundtable will also focus on the bundling of demand in the area of green hydrogen, discussing efficient approaches and solutions in production and logistics. 

Tickets are available here.

International Hydrogen Infrastructure Workshop, Boston

On 11th and 12th September the "International Hydrogen Infrastructure Workshop" took place in Boston. The following Tonics were discussed:
- Identify areas of hydrogen infrastructure wherein early-stage R&D is necessary to reduce cost and improve reliability.
- Facilitate collaboration between laboratory researchers and industry stakeholders to inform R&D.
- Leverage accomplishments of projects from key stakeholders in infrastructure to accelerate R&D.
- Discuss operational experiences to prioritize systems / processes / techniques that can improve the availability and performance of hydrogen refueling stations.
- Prioritize areas for international collaboration on hydrogen infrastructure.
- Identify regulatory and codes & standards barriers that must be addressed to advance hydrogen infrastructure.

The CEP reported to the following subjects: "Harmonization of Station Acceptance Procedures in Germany with SAE and ISO by Clean Energy Partnership" & "Total Cost of Ownership Based Approach to Determining Standards for Heavy-Duty Vehicles".

Agenda ::


The Clean Energy Partnership is one of the most important international projects to test hydrogen as a fuel. It revolves around the development of technical standards – from production to swift, safe fuelling to the operation of hydrogen-powered vehicles.
