HydrogenDays 2019

DESCRIPTION:
Dear Colleagues, Ladies and Gentlemen,

The international conference Hydrogen Days 2019 represents a well-established event in the field of hydrogen technologies. And it gives me great pleasure to invite you to its 10th anniversary edition. In contrast to traditional conferences, it combines a technical symposium, providing details of the latest research results, with an overview of advances in the industrial sector and trends in national as well as European policy. This specific format of the meeting reflects the position of the Czech Republic as well as other Central and Eastern European countries with regard to hydrogen technologies which are still predominantly known to only a relatively narrow group of specialists. Both the general public and decision-makers often lack an important piece of information: the irreplaceable role of hydrogen technologies in the future energy transformation towards a low- and a post-fossil fuel era. This can be changed only by intensive dissemination activities and effective cooperation. The Hydrogen Days conference traditionally aims to fulfil this ambition and at the same time to become a hub for establishing collaboration among specialists in hydrogen technologies from different regions of Europe and beyond. This is expressed by the main motto of Hydrogen Days 2019:

Through collaboration to the deployment of H2 technologies

Let’s come together again and continue to discover the latest progress in research, industry and the public policy scene. Let’s find out issues that we have in common and areas for collaboration. Let’s promote further development and, above all, the implementation of hydrogen technologies in our daily lives.

Join us from March 27 to 29, 2019 once again in the National Technical Library in Prague.

Karel Bouzek

Chairman of the Scientific Committee

Technical Excursions

Come and visit Leancat, a Czech hydrogen-driven technology startup. Our first interest was a new "lean cat-alyst", then we moved on to R&D new versions of complete PEM fuel cells for various applications. Out of need to properly test these FCs, we started to develop and sell our own sophisticated testing stations. We also develop an H2 generator, a UPS, a forklift and other H2 related products. [www.lean-cat.com]

UCT Prague 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. [http://uat.vscht.cz/en/research/]

UJV Řež, a.s. is a reputable, renowned scientific-research and engineering company dedicated to nuclear technologies and their application in various fields. A key field of UJV Řež'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.
Excursion to UJV will allow you to visit:

  • Research nuclear reactor LR-0 - the reactor is a light-water, zero-power, pool-type reactor. It serves as an experimental reactor for measuring neutron-physical characteristics of VVER (Water-Water Energetic Reactor) type reactors.
  • Trihybus - City bus with triple hybrid electric drive and hydrogen fuel cells
  • Pilot unit of hydrogen energy storage system - the energy surplus storage system from photovoltaic panels to hydrogen
  • The experimental hydrogen loop of the high-temperature electrolysis for hydrogen generation

Invitation

Dear partners,

We would like to invite you to join us at the international conference Hydrogen Days 2019 which represents a well-established event in the field of hydrogen technologies in Europe. Its 10th anniversary edition will be held on March 27 - 29, 2019 in the National Library of Technology in Prague.

In contrast to traditional conferences, Hydrogen Days 2019 combines a technical symposium, providing details of the latest research results, with an overview of advances in the industrial sector and trends in national as well as European policy. The conference is focused not only on specialist in hydrogen technologies from all around the world but also on general public and decision-makers who often lack an important piece of information: the irreplaceable role of hydrogen technologies in the future energy transformation towards a low- and a postfossil fuel era.

The unique Hydrogen Days 2019 conference therefore offers an important chance for presenting your Company/Infrastructure with the expected impact on broad target groups of researchers and all levels of experience and public.

As Hydrogen Days 2019 organizers, we have prepared for you a broad offer of sponsorship opportunities and possibilities to promote your Company/Infrastructure. We hope that in the presented package you will be able to find an optimum product that meets the concept of your Company/Infrastructure.

On behalf of the Hydrogen Days 2019 organizing committee
