After the success of the 2018 conference, with a 25% increase in registrations, the conference is moving to a larger venue (but still at the conveniently located NEC, Birmingham).


The conference looks at all aspects of the commercialisation of the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell sector with presentations from a range of manufacturers, policy makers and also users of the technology. Transport will be a key subject of interest and the increasing interest in Hydrogen for Heat will be considered as will the vital issues of hydrogen production, infrastructure, storage and safety and large and small scale portable and stationary applications.
