Recent years and months show a major shift towards the development of a hydrogen economy on all continents. In fact there’s so much going on in the sphere of policy making, industrial planning and knowledge exchange that the public needs an overview. What are the most important H2 related developments for industry, transport, mobility and the built environment? By producing regular newscasts we aim to offer such an overview for Europe.
