Bringing the latest breakthroughs in hydrogen technologies & strategies

The European Hydrogen Energy Conference (EHEC) is the Europe's conference of reference in the field of hydrogen energy.

EHEC provides an excellent framework for updates on hydrogen and fuel cell technologies and represents the best setting to show the latest advances in research, projects and products. It will bring the latest breakthroughs in the research and business sector to the public eye. Moreover, the conference will facilitate the presentation of cutting edge hydrogen and fuel cell science and technology.

After the great success of WHEC 2016 (www.whec2016.com) and last editions of EHEC (2005, 2014 and 2018),  the Spanish Hydrogen Association (AeH2) has taken on the organisation of EHEC 2021 with the objective of continuing boosting the use of hydrogen technologies worldwide. This coming edition counts on the esteemed collaboration and support of the European Hydrogen Association (EHA), Hydrogen Europe (HE), Hydrogen Europe Research, International Association for Hydrogen Energy (IAHE), International Journal of Hydrogen Energy (IJHE), Institute for the Diversification and Saving of Energy (IDAE) and "Comunidad de Madrid".

EHEC will be held in Madrid city in 2021.

The conference will consist of plenary sessions on the most relevant aspects of strategies and technological breakthroughs worldwide and technical sessions (oral presentations and posters). Additionally, EHEC 2021 will host a trade fair, where the industry and research institutions will have a space to showcase and demonstrate their latest products and services on hydrogen technologies.

One of the main aims of EHEC 2021 is to facilitate networking between all hydrogen agents. Therefore, the conference will include several networking areas and multiple side events of interest. In order to complete the experience for every conference attendee and companion.

This edition of the European Hydrogen Energy Conference will be held in an outstanding momentum for these technologies, as the future hydrogen economy is currently being shaped. EHEC 2021 aims to be a meeting point for experts from all around the world to discuss the best course of action of hydrogen technologies in order to achieve their full potential.

Agenda 2018

In 2014, the European Hydrogen Energy Conference came back to Spain, this time to Seville from 12th to 14th March, under the organisation of the Spanish Hydrogen Association (AeH2) and the auspices of the European Hydrogen Association (EHA). 

EHEC 2014 Call for abstracts received more than 300 abstracts from 39 different countries and, despite being a mainly European-focused event, EHEC 2014 attracted experts from all over the world (about one third of the submitted abstracts belong to professionals placed beyond the European bordeers).

Finally, the event had 120 oral presentations and 100 posters, covering the following topics: 

  • Hydrogen production: reforming.
  • Hydrogen production: others.
  • Hydrogen storage.
  • Fuel cell components and stacks, R&D.
  • Hydrogen and fuel cell systems and applications.
  • Control and power conditioning.
  • Hydrogen distribution and filling stations.
  • Market strategies.
  • Companies and commercialisation.
  • Codes and standards.
  • Safety and environmental issues.
  • Countries strategies and associations.
  • Other related topics of interest.

EHEC 2014 was a high technical event that brought together more than 330 professionals, research centres, public and private institutes, companies and decision makers from throughout the entire hydrogen and fuel cell sector.
