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.

Aachen 05.11.2015

CEP Campus Day at RWTH Aachen


After visits to Chemnitz University of Technology and the University of Bremen, the Clean Energy Partnership has been invited to present at RWTH Aachen in November.

As part of the Electromobility lecture series, the CEP will give a guest talk on the topic of ‘Electromobility with hydrogen and fuel cells’ and give an insight into the current state of the project’s development. Claudia Fried (CEP) and Thomas Brachmann (Honda R&D) will be the speakers

Interested parties can take a test drive to experience first-hand what it is like to sit behind the wheel of an eco-friendly, low-noise fuel-cell car. Five vehicles await visitors at the CEP Ride & Drive in Aachen: a Ford Focus FCV, a Honda FCX Clarity, a Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell, and two Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cells.

Guest lecture: 18:00 to 19:30
‘Electric mobility with hydrogen and fuel cells’
Kármán Auditorium Fo 5, Eilfschornsteinstr. 15, 52062 Aachen

Test drives: 09:30 to 17:30
on presentation of a valid driver's licence
Please make an appointment at the CEP stand in the Kármán Auditorium foyer


Fellbach 01.10.2015

CEP partner Daimler, Linde und TOTAL open new hydrogen pump in Fellbach


Another hydrogen filling station opened in the Stuttgart region. Daimler, Linde and TOTAL are continuing their joint plans for the expansion of the national hydrogen infrastructure. After the openings at the Geiselwind motorway service area, the first H2 filling station on the autobahn, and at two locations in Berlin, the partners have now taken another step towards a nationwide supply network for locally emission-free electric vehicles with fuel cells.

On October 1, Dr. Veit Steinle (Director-General, Departmental Policy Issues at the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure) and Assistant Secretary Helmfried Meinel (Baden-Wuerttemberg Ministry for the Environment, Climate and Energy) jointly opened the new hydrogen fuelling station in Fellbach.

The TOTAL multi-energy filling station Fellbach is the fifth H2 station in Baden-Wuerttemberg. More hydrogen filling stations will follow in the months ahead.


Munic 16.07.2015

CEP partner TOTAL and BMW opens new hydrogen pump in Munich


Another milestone is achieved in the development of a nationwide H2 infrastructure. On July 16, 2015, the two CEP partners Total and BMW opened the second hydrogen gas pump on the TOTAL multi-energy gas station Detmold street in Munich. In addition to today's standard refueling with gaseous hydrogen (700 bar), now is a second hydrogen pump for innovative cryo-tank technology. Hydrogen this aggregate state is characterized a high storage density. BMW puts it into its new generation of test vehicles with fuel cell and received around 9.8 million euros of funding from the federal National Innovation Programme for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells (NIP). TOTAL has invested over 2 million euros, of which 1.4 million euros were publicly funded.
