In the program: Fabian Stang, Mayor of Oslo, Ola Elvestuen, Vice Mayor for the Department of  Environment and Transport and other prominent guests. Moderator: Ole André Sivertsen.
“Norway is one of the European “hotspots” in the introduction of zero emission vehicles. That's why we call it  ’the Norwegian Case’” says Dr. Uli Bünger, project coordinator.
“Yet another station in Oslo shows that car manufacturers are interested in investing in hydrogen and that Norway is one of the important places for the early market” says Bjørn Simonsen, Chairman of HyNor.
“The project is working to gain customer acceptance of hydrogen by undertaking a European Hydrogen Road Tour in 2012 - there will also be test drives in several European cities. Three test drives will be arranged in Oslo between 21-26 November”, says Christine Apelgren project manager communication.

About the H2moves Scandinavia project
H2moves Scandinavia aims to demonstrate the market readiness of fuel cell vehicles and the hydrogen refuelling infrastructure. The project aims to join Scandinavia into the ongoing fuel cell demonstration projects in Germany and the rest of Europe, thereby closing an infrastructure gap between them. This is the first large scale demonstration project supported by the newly established European Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking Programme. The total budget is 20 million Euro and support is also given from both Danish and Norwegian national funds. Read more at: www.scandinavianhydrogen.org

Project partners: Ludwig Bölkow Systemtechnik, Daimler, H2Logic, Hydrogen Link, Vätgas Sverige, SP, Tüv Süd, Transnova, EUDP, New Energy World JU, EU, Sintef, Bertel O. Steen, HyNor.  

Hydrogen – Here Today, Everywhere Tomorrow.

Vätgas Sverige är ett partnerskap som arbetar för att underlätta en introduktion av vätgas och bränsleceller i samhället. Medlemmar och finansiärer kommer från näringsliv, institut, kommuner, regioner, nationella myndigheter och föreningar. Verksamheten bedrivs i form av en ideell förening och består av en styrelse, ett kansli och ett femtiotal medlemmar.

Vår syn på vätgasens roll som energibärare är balanserad och långsiktig. Vi ser att vätgas- och bränslecellsområdet nu utvecklas mycket starkt och tillsammans med andra energitekniker kommer det möjliggöra framtidens mer hållbara och effektiva energiförsörjning.
