Welcome to Nordic Hydrogen and Fuel Cell conference 2018

Iceland is now taking a leap into the future of hydrogen.
15 years ago, Iceland built the first commercial hydrogen station (and hosted the first HFC Nordic). In 2018, as part of the Hydrogen Mobility Europe project, three hydrogen refueling stations will be built and a fleet of vehicles will be deployed.

This year, Reykjavík, Iceland welcomes you once again. The HFC Nordic conference will be held at the Grand Hotel Reykjavík October 9-10. Seize this opportunity to network with Nordic hydrogen and fuel cell experts, decision makers and key industry stakeholders. The future starts now!

Already inspiring presenters from Element Energy, Hydrogen Denmark, HYOP, Hyundai, Jive, Nel and Toyota have been secured. Scroll down for program details.

For further information, contact Anna Margrét Kornelíusdóttir at amk@newenergy.is or telephone +354 863 6506.
