Joint press release from the CEP and DWV
Statement from CEP and DWV on the National Hydrogen Strategy
Berlin, 10 June 2020 – It is done. Germany’s Federal Cabinet has adopted the National Hydrogen Strategy (NHS), a step long awaited by the industry. The Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) and the German Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (DWV) welcome the NHS as a pioneering first step towards a successful traffic transition. In view of the finer points of the NHS, the two partners are confident that the regulatory framework it creates will enable a sustainable hydrogen economy and the achievement of the climate targets for 2050. The CEP and DWV are jointly committed to the market establishment of reliable, eco-friendly mobility powered by hydrogen and fuel cells.
Joint appeal by CEP and DWV to the Federal Government
Berlin, 27 April 2020 - The coronavirus is all anyone talks about, and rightly so. But there will come a time after the coronavirus crisis, and then the economy will need to be revived. At that point, it will be important for financial resources to be channelled into bringing emerging technologies to market. This is particularly true for the energy and mobility sector, which is facing disruptive upheavals.
Adopting the National Hydrogen Strategy (NWS) is therefore more necessary than ever before. This is the case not only because of the ever-increasing international competition for technologies, but also to be able to take the decisive measures for the market-based introduction of a hydrogen industry and economy immediately after the end of the coronavirus crisis. Furthermore, with the timely adoption of an action plan to this effect, German companies would be more likely to benefit from the financial resources for the hydrogen economy promised by the European Union.
