Handover of funding for National Fuel Cell Production Action Plan - H2GO
On September 13, Federal Minister of Transport Dr. Volker Wissing handed over to the President of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft Prof. Dr. Reimund Neugebauer a funding decision for the project "H2GO - National Fuel Cell Production Action Plan".
The approximately 80 million euros will enable the start of the hydrogen age in freight mobility.
The H2GO project combines the activities of 19 Fraunhofer institutes that are already working at full speed to create the conditions for efficient large-scale production of fuel cells that can convert hydrogen into electricity on board a vehicle. The overall coordination of the research network with a total of five sub-groups lies with Fraunhofer IWU.
The funding period extends until the end of 2025, and the German Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport is funding H2GO from the resources of the Automotive Industry Future Fund in accordance with the recommendations of the expert committee. The funding is coordinated by NOW GmbH, and Project Management Jülich (PtJ) is responsible for implementation.
