The Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Network NRW was founded in 2000 as part of the EnergyAgency.NRW. The network brings together experienced and new players in the field of fuel cell and hydrogen technology to jointly promote the development and market introduction.

By intensifying the transfer of knowledge between research and industry, new fields are created, the production and research location NRW strengthened and the technology guided to market introduction.

The network has its base in Dusseldorf, the capital of NRW. The branch office is located in the Science Park Gelsenkirchen.

The Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Network is part of the Cluster "EnergyRegion.NRW", which is managed by the EnergyAgency.NRW on behalf of the Ministry for Climate Protection of NRW. The cluster is the strategic platform in NRW with broad expertise in the field of energy. Key competences include energy research, technological development, demonstration and market introduction of the energy consultancy and professional development.

The main task of EnergyRegion.NRW is to network the partners from the energy sector across the entire value chain. In the associated networks:    

  • "Biomass"
  • "Fuel cells and hydrogen"
  • "Energy efficiency and solar construction"
  • "Fuels and drivetrains of the future"
  • "Power plant technology"
  • "Photovoltaic"
  • "Storage and grids"
  • "Wind energy"

technical innovation is pushed forward. This cluster is complemented by Cluster EnergieResearch.NRW in the field of science and research.
