Hannover. Hydrogen + Fuel Cells NORTH AMERICA is back for another season. The show premiered successfully last September in Las Vegas alongside Solar Power International (SPI) and will be co-staged with SPI again this year. Hydrogen + Fuel Cells NORTH AMERICA 2018 will be held from 24 to 27 September at the Convention Center in Anaheim, California. This year's show will be run in partnership with the California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC) and the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP).
California has a long history with renewable energy and is one of the biggest proponents of hydrogen and fuel cell technology in the USA. "Used in combination, solar and hydrogen provide a zero-emission fuel for all energy applications," said Jeff Serfass, Executive Director CHBC. "That's why CHBC is happy to support this fantastic solar energy show in California and will be using it to raise awareness of hydrogen energy solutions."
" Hydrogen + Fuel Cells NORTH AMERICA connects innovations from HANNOVER MESSE with North America's biggest market for hydrogen technology and fuel cell vehicles," said Bill Elrick, Executive Director CaFCP. "We are delighted to be part of this event and will be inviting all attendees to test drive an electric vehicle."
