Hydrogen Valley is a non-profit center, which conducts and assists in activities that establish how hydrogen, biogas and methanol can advance a green transition of the Danish energy system. This is done in close cooperation with companies, organizations and public authorities. Hydrogen Valley attracts investments within green renewable energy to Denmark. This includes acquiring funding from a variety of different sources and funds.
In the middle of November, a new project called “CrossCut” was launched. The project is a collaboration between Ballard Power Systems Europe, Aalborg University, Stofa and Hydrogen Valley/CEMTEC. Together the four partners will develop a new hybrid fuel cell system, which can be integrated with other renewable energy technologies.
On February 13, 2017 Hydrogenics, partner in the HyBalance project and developer of the new 1.2 MW PEM electrolyser, announced that the electrolyser has successfully produced hydrogen during the first stage of factory acceptance testing at Hydrogenics facilities in Oevel, Belgium.
One of Europe’s most advanced hydrogen facilities will be established in Denmark. Air Liquide, Hydrogenics, LBST, Neas Energy, Hydrogen Valley/CEMTEC and the European Joint Technology Initiative have signed a contract to build one of Europe’s largest facilities for production of green hydrogen.
As the number of fuel cell vehicles are expected to increase, the requirement for skilled labour within the fuel cell and hydrogen (FCH) area are needed. A new project, financed by the European programme Erasmus+, will gather experience and knowledge from three European countries and develop a training programme for technicians of FCH vehicles.
The Taiwanese company M-Field, Dantherm Power, Aalborg University and CEMTEC have just initiated a new project which will focus on developing the next generation flexible and optimized fuel cell system for forklifts. The project is funded by the Danish Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program (EUDP), who has granted 9.69 million DKK to the project.
