Initiate. Network. Promote: Hydrogen and fuel cell technologies
As of 2021, NOW GmbH as an implementation partner of the programme Export Initiative Environmental Technologies of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), is responsible for the technical focus of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies for distributed and off-grid power supply.
The initiative aims to support activities of small and medium-sized technology companies as well as research institutions investigating in the field of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, both with registered offices in Germany. Companies and institutions are supported in taking the first step into a new market, as well as in developing and implementing projects in the field of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies for local use.
The spectrum of possible applications of hydrogen and fuel cell systems for distributed power supply is extremely broad. The strengths of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies can be demonstrated in a variety of possible uses cases: From powering a mobile telecommunication system in rural areas, to providing secure and uninterrupted power to critical infrastructures, or the application in a mini-grid for a remote hotel facility. Hydrogen and fuel cell technologies make a valuable contribution – in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way.
