HydrogenDays 2016



Dear Colleagues,

A few months have passed and meanwhile the Hydrogen Days 2015 conference has become history. The second international edition of this event continued in the wake of the promising start made in 2014. The audience has become more international and the scope broader with respect not only to the topic covered, but also to the significant presence of industry in parallel with academia. This has convinced us that the event has found its audience and has established itself internationally. For the new 2016 edition we have chosen the motto

“Hydrogen – Changing energetics and transportation landscape”.

This is very true of today. We are fortunate in living in an era of revolutionary technological changes and challenges. Changes in the means of supplying society with energy, which includes the hydrogen economy as an important component of the scenario, are an inevitable part of it. This aspect is reflected to different degrees by the individual European nations. However, this does not change the fact that, sooner or later, reality will compel all of them to take part in this process.

Therefore, I trust that the conference of Hydrogen Days 2016 will be a learning opportunity for us all. Due to the increased presence of representatives from Visegrad countries, complemented by most of the remaining countries of the Central and Eastern Europe region, the conference offers participants from all over Europe a great opportunity for networking and for strengthening their position through unity and collaboration.

I look forward to seeing you here in the charming city of Prague!

Karel Bouzek
Chairman of the Scientific Committee

TECHNICAL EXCURSIONS

represents the biggest educational institution of its kind in Central Europe. UCT Prague is deeply involved into the research of hydrogen related technologies. It covers not only fuel cells and water electrolysis, but also broad spectra of related technologies, like purification, storage and safety. Excursion to UCT Prague will allow you to visit selected laboratories and to discuss with specialists involved in this interesting field of research. [www.vscht.cz]

based at the Czech Technical University in Prague has acquired high international reputation as the country's leading research body focused on automotive technology. The main focus of the Research Centre is research and development of spark ignition engines (gasoline, gas, alternative fuels) and diesel engines for cars and heavy-duty vehicles. [http://www3.fs.cvut.cz]

is a reputable, renowned scientific-research and engineering company dedicated to nuclear technologies and their application in various fields. A key field of UJV Rež’s interest is energy, where special attention is given to the development of long-term sustainable energy with minimum environmental impact. One of these activities is focusing on hydrogen technologies in energy and transportation, particularly high temperature processes (SOFC, SOEC), energy storage, hydrogen-based hybrid stand-alone systems and microgrids and their integration to the distribution network. [www.ujv.cz]

is the biggest surface science group in the Czech Republic. Research focuses mainly to fundamental studies of reducible oxide and nano-alloy surface reactivity and model studies in catalysis. During last years the research is oriented towards studies of electrocatalysts for PEMFCs. Fuel cell test  laboratory and advanced Near Ambient Pressure Photoelectron Spectrometer with in situ electrochemical cell will be presented. [http://physics.mff.cuni.cz]
