On May 17th, CIDAUT had the pleasure of attending to the International Sustainable Mobility Forum (FIMS) in Entroncamento (Portugal) in such an incomparable setting as the National Railway Museum. CIDAUT participated as a speaker in the meeting entitled Hydrogen-based emission-less mobility and transportation solutions
This forum aims to promote a meeting of the supply and demand of innovative hydrogen and fuel cell solutions in transport systems in the context of emissions-free mobility. The event brought together suppliers of technology solutions, industry, transport management entities and fleet owners, urban planners, land managers and decision makers – among others – promoting mutual updating on opportunities and challenges related to the use of hydrogen. Hydrogen ecosystems, such as production, storage, distribution, refueling and end-use, are presented through innovative pilot projects carried out in the context of European projects and strategies.
The forum “Hydrogen-based Low Carbon Transport and Mobility Solutions” aims to present functional options in the area of hydrogen and fuel cells demonstrated in European cities and regions, present innovative technological solutions and discuss methodologies to accelerate the deployment and implementation of hydrogen and technologies in the mobility and transport sectors.
It was attended by the Secretary of State for Mobility Protuguese, José Mendes, as well as representatives of the regional authorities of Medio Tejo and Cities, regions, Hydrogen and fuel cell associations, investors, industry, mobility and other stakeholders with a keen interest in the hydrogen sector and its outcomes and interested to learn more about the local Hydrogen Clusters and willing to develop partnerships.
Continuing with the European events on Hydrogen, CIDAUT also attended on June 25th the kick-off meeting of the Intelligent Platform S3 European Hydrogen Valleys Partnership held in Brussels. CIDAUT was invited by the Regional Energy Agency (EREN). This platform is established in Normandy, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, Northen, Netherlands and Aragon, and aims to strengthen interregional cooperation across the EU on S3 common areas to co-develop investment projects for the modernization of the European industry.
During the meeting there was an introduction of the Partnership mission, after which there was a round of presentation of the present regions in the kick-off meeting and their interest in hydrogen technologies. Finally, a presentation of the analysis of the preliminary mapping questionnaires was made which will sent to the different regions whose results and it will be presented at the next meeting to be held on October 15th.
This event was held coinciding with the celebration of the H2020 Energy Infodays that took place from June 24th to 26th. CIDAUT attended on June 26th where the topics on Research, Innovation and Market uptake projects on Clean Energy were presented.
