In October 2015, Sydney will be the centre of the global hydrogen and fuel cell community.
The 6th World Hydrogen Technologies Convention (WHTC), a leading technical and commercial event for the global hydrogen energy and fuel cell community, will be held at Australian Technology Park, Sydney on October 11-14 2015, and hosted by the Australian Association for Hydrogen Energy (AAHE).
The opportunity for Sydney to host WHTC could have not come at a better time. 2015 will be a watershed year for hydrogen and fuel cells. Following increased commercialisation of fuel cell products in materials handling, telecommunication and distributed energy applications over the last five years, leading automative OEMs will for the first time introduce mass-produced fuel cell electric vehicles in the global marketplace.
A clear trend is also emerging towards the integration of renewable energy and hydrogen as a key enabling pathway towards 100% renewable energy systems, offering uniquely versatile platforms for energy storage at both small-scale, remote area, and large-scale, utility-size applications, and a promising, robust solution for clean transportation.
Delegates and exhibitors visiting Sydney in 2015 will have a unique opportunity to learn about innovative applications for hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, explore cutting edge products and reach out to a wide audience of prospective suppliers, clients and partners.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Convention and to Sydney in October 2015.
