Workshops 2018

Die f-cell besteht aus mehreren Elementen wie Keynotes, Sessions, Workshops und Thementischen. Zudem wird der rege Austausch der Teilnehmer durch unsere neu entwickelte f-cell App unterstützt. Hier stellen wir Ihnen die Workshops vor, zu welchen Sie sich online im normalen Anmeldeprozess anmelden können.


Ein besonderes Highlight wird auch der Workshop von Roger Spindler werden:

Cross Innovations – von anderen Branchen und Märkten lernen
Tuesday, September 18, 14-15.30
Chairman: Roger Spindler, Zukunftsinstitut GmbH

Roger Spindler

Nur eine Minderheit der Unternehmen beschäftigt sich bewusst mit Entwicklungen aus anderen Branchen, um radikale Innovationen hervorzubringen und die Arbeitsabläufe zu optimieren. Damit liegt ein Großteil des Innovationspotenzials in unserer Wirtschaft brach, denn reale Innovationen entstehen vor allem an den Schnittstellen von Branchen und Märkten. Darin liegt aber auch für jedes Unternehmen die große Chance, dieses Potenzial zu nutzen und sich vom Wettbewerb zu differenzieren. Im Praxis Workshop «Cross-Innovations» erleben die Teilnehmenden, wie Sie ihr Innovationspotential nutzen können.

Der Cross-Innovations-Ansatz beschreibt die Innovationsentwicklung durch die interdisziplinäre Verknüpfung von Produkten, Services und Trends. Dafür gibt es zwei Umsetzungen: den Transfer von Know-how und Lösungsansätzen durch Branchenanalogien oder die Innovationsentwicklung in branchenübergreifenden Kooperationen. Der praxisorientierten Workshop führt in fünf Schritten durch den eigentlichen Cross-Innovations-Prozess.


Novel concepts and components for high performance PEM water electrolysis
Tuesday, September 18, 15.30-17.30
Chairmen: Prof. Dr. Richard Hanke-Rauschenbach, Leibniz Universität Hannover/ Prof. Simon Thiele, Forschungszentrum Jülich/HI-ERN

This workshop focuses on novel materials for PEM water electrolysis. In a concise format we discuss critically important developments from the bipolar plate, over the porous transport layers to membrane electrode assemblies and catalysts. The format of the workshop is a presentation of all mentioned topics with a subsequent 'market of opportunities' where each presented topic can be in depth discussed at a poster. This workshop is part of the dissemination and exploitation activities for the BMBF funded project Power-MEE which will be presented at the beginning of the workshop.

Canada Workshop – Supported by Canada
Heavy Duty Fuel Cell Applications Commercialization: Opportunities and Scale-up Challenges
Tuesday, September 18, 15.30-17.30, Chairwoman: Shanna Knights, Ballard Power Systems

There is a growing demand for fuel cell technology as an attractive zero emission powertrain alternative, with no compromises in operation, for many heavy duty applications, including buses, trucks, rail, and marine.  This strong market development supports scale-up of the FC industry, and results in concomitant challenges in manufacturing and vehicle deployment and servicing. 

This session will review some of the current heavy duty applications and planned demonstrations and deployments by leading fuel cell developers, as well as address some of the needs of the industry due to scale-up, such as improved component and material specifications approaches, quality control needs, and industry standardization, both from a production and research perspective.

Insights from Norway: Hydrogen in the Maritime Sector
Wednesday, September 19, 14-15.30
Chairman: Kristian Vik, Norwegian Hydrogen Forum

Currently, Germany is experiencing a rapid change in many sectors and is looking at hydrogen as one future energy carrier within the “Energiewende” and in transportation. Norway is seen in Germany as a high technology developed country when talking about green and sustainable solutions. Looking at Norway as a pioneering country in many sectors, today the Norwegian maritime zero emission strategy is creating new opportunities for hydrogen technologies. The members of Norwegian Hydrogen Forum and the NCE Maritime Cleantech cluster are therefore glad to give you close insights in what is happening in the market and how Norwegian players again have a major impact on one of the country’s most important industry. We are looking forward to connect with the German market, create potential business cases and share ideas from “Made in Norway”.

Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in Ports: Presented by the California Hydrogen Business Council
Wednesday, September 19, 15.30-17:00,
Chairman: Cory Shumaker, CHBC

The California Hydrogen Business Council has been working to accelerate the adaptation of hydrogen and fuel cells in ports for over three years with various workshops held in California since 2015. This workshop will provide a forum to discuss the latest progress with hydrogen and fuel cells in ports around the globe. The workshop purpose is to push forward the topic of hydrogen as a method of zero emission port equipment operation and invoke a discussion around the commercialization of the technology.
