Topic tables

Topic tables

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 Sandra Bilz 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 Importance of Specialized and Custom-Tailored Nano-Materials in Electrochemical Energy Storage/Conversion Technologies

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Dr. Seyed Schwan Hosseiny, Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt e.V. (DLR), Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics

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.

SMART TESTSOLUTIONS - Cell Voltage Monitoring: Ready for the series?

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

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?

Clean Energy Partnership – New modes of transport – Creating synergies – Green hydrogen

Joerg Starr, AUDI AG and Thomas Bystry, Shell Deutschland Oil GmbH & Chairman of the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP)
The Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) reports on the status quo of hydrogen mobility, achievements to date, and challenges currently being tackled in the working groups. Some of the industry partnership’s successes include the evaluation of vehicle and system operation data, the development of a uniform refuelling standard, and the introduction of an authorisation process for customers, including card and payment systems. Among other aspects, the roundtable will discuss standardisation processes for new modes of transport, the design of refuelling protocols for heavy goods transport, and the creation of an ‘RCS (Regulations, Codes, Standards) Roadmap’. The roundtable will also focus on the bundling of demand in the area of green hydrogen, discussing efficient approaches and solutions in production and logistics. 

HyLaw: European legal framework - challenges or opportunities for hydrogen and fuel cell technologies

HyLaw stands for Hydrogen Law and removal of legal barriers to the deployment of fuel cells and hydrogen applications. It is a flagship project aimed at boosting the market uptake of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies providing market developers with a clear view of the applicable regulations whilst calling the attention of policy makers on legal barriers to be removed.
The project brings together 23 partners from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Portugal, the Netherlands and United Kingdom and is coordinated by Hydrogen Europe. Through extensive research, interviews and legal analysis, the HyLaw partners have identified the legislation and regulations relevant to fuel cell and hydrogen applications and legal barriers to their commercialization.  They provide public authorities at EU and national level with specific benchmarks and recommendations on how to remove these barriers for the different hydrogen and fuel cell applications.
