The f-cell consists of more items then just Keynote Presenters and Workshops. Topic Tables are also available. The ability for lively exchange between participants is now even greater with our newly developed f-cell app. Discuss your specific Hydrogen and Fuel Cell topics in small groups. Experts can moderate the small groups or it can become a lively Barcamp discussion. Would you like to bring a specific topic that concerns you, to a Topic Table? No problem! Contact Silke Frank (+49 711 656960-55) to make the arrangements.
Are you interested in participating at a Topic Table! There is guaranteed to be an interesting topic for you. Ensure to reserve your spot through the online registration. Register soon, as there will only be 10 people per table. Check back into your registration regularly to see if a new table has been created. It might be of interest to you!

The diffusion of intermittent renewable energy sources reveals the need of appropriate decentralized storage and conversion solutions for grid support and residential applications.
Here electrochemical energy storage and conversion technologies (EESCs) such as electrolysis, fuel cells, batteries, or Power-2-X technologies for CO2 reduction or electrochemical ammonia production re-present a viable option. However, several studies on EESCs highlight the need for improvements with respect of performance, durability and safety of these technologies to accelerate development and commercialization.
The employment of nano-materials in EESCs is one way to overcome many of the above mentioned shortcomings. Yet in order to do so the two fields of nano-materials and EESC need to have a solid research and development base with routes to develop new specialized and technology tailored nano-materials for EESCs. The purpose of this discussion round will therefore be on understanding why the specialization and custom tailoring of nano-materials is highly challenging and how the visibility and interaction between the various key players in industry, academia and research institutes can be enhanced in order to create advanced EESCs through specialized and custom tailored nano-materials.
The best way to prevent a fuel cell stack from being permanently damaged by unwanted processes, such as corrosion, is to monitor single cell voltages. At any time, they provide detailed information about the status of the stack and thus give the operator the opportunity to react in good time to critical operating conditions. For this reason, Cell Voltage Monitoring Systems (CVM) are an important part of corresponding test benches in the development departments of automobile manufacturers. At the theme table it is discussed to what extent CVM systems can also contribute to optimal operation in series-production vehicles. Is integration in series-production vehicles useful? How should the corresponding CVM systems be designed?
