Primary and backup power
Research and development projects as well as joint investments for hydrogen economy are the Cluster's key missions. Its members are cooperating in the fields of information exchange, building economic connections, services and technologies. Cluster establishes broad cooperation with domestic and foreign organizations and other cluster networks and conducts educational and promotional activities as well.
The Cluster launched its activities in August 2017. Its mission is to to initiate actions to increase the importance of hydrogen technologies and clean coal technologies, by supporting members of the Cluster and cooperating entities in the development of innovative solutions for energy efficiency and low-carbon economy.
The cluster will operate both the Research and Development Center and the Technology Transfer Platform to support companies' work on technology projects, and at a later stage, to support testing and verifying of new solutions.
Activities related to building the Cluster's potential, allowing to obtain a leader status in the area of the economy related to the use of hydrogen technologies and clean coal technologies, including eco-innovation and development of energy efficiency and energy efficiency management, using modern hydrogen technologies and clean coal.
Promotion and implementation of national solutions in the field of hydrogen technologies, among others as research and implementation works in the National Hydrogen Technology and Pure Coal Technology Program.
Creating a cooperation platform to effectively connect and use the potential of its associated entities for the promotion and development of hydrogen technologies and clean coal technologies.
Promoting, supporting and developing research, products and services for the application of hydrogen technologies and clean coal technologies in the national economy in order to significantly raise the technological level of the Polish economy both inside and outside the European Union.
18 May 2022 - PKN ORLEN has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Alstom for the supply of zero-emission, eco-friendly trains and hydrogen fuel for public rail transport.
The corporation, which is consistently implementing the hydrogen strategy, announced earlier this year, that it will provide the refuelling infrastructure for trains produced by Alstom. The first hydrogen vehicles are likely to roll out on regional lines within two years.
Under the agreement, Alstom will cooperate with PKN ORLEN in participating in proceedings organised by public rail transport operators. Alstom will be responsible for the supply of zero-emission trains powered by hydrogen fuel cells. In turn, PKN ORLEN will be responsible for the distribution, storage and supply of hydrogen fuel for these trains.
On May 17th and 18th in Poznań, the 1st Central European Hydrogen Technology Forum H2POLAND took place. It can be said with certainty that it was the most important hydrogen event in Poland.
Two days full of interesting speeches and meetings with experts, representatives of the world of science, local governments and enthusiasts of hydrogen, renewable energy sources and green economy, which is becoming an important part of the public debate in Poland, Europe and the world.
The Cluster of Hydrogen Technology was responsible for the substantive part of the event devoted to economic and business matters.
Over 50 exhibitors, almost 100 speakers, 20 debates and other accompanying events. H2Poland was an excellent example of a bridge connecting the activities of the Greater Poland and Pomeranian Voivodeship for the development of hydrogen technologies in Poland.
We are very grateful for all extremely inspiring conversations, meetings and new contacts. We especially appreciate the fact that we were able to see you in person.
We would like to thank everyone for numerous visits to the stand of the Cluster of Hydrogen Technologies. During two intense days, at our stand, we presented not only the Cluster's offer but also our co-exhibitors.
Thanks to the personal participation of company representatives, the visitors to the fair could obtain comprehensive knowledge about the presented products and services dedicated to the industry.
During the event, we also promoted the H2GLOBAL project, the latest in the Cluster portfolio, the aim of which is to build a partnership of leading European clusters in order to create a "European strategic cluster partnership - Going International" focused on cluster cooperation and internationalization adapted to support and promote enterprises, technologies and services related to hydrogen . The project is implemented under the COSME program (Framework Program for the Competitiveness of Enterprises and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises 2014-2020.
We came back with heads full of new ideas and energy to act, and the fair turned out to be an extremely inspiring experience.
We would also like to thank the Poznań International Fairs for successful cooperation and we hope that there will be much more events ahead of us, with energy equal to that of H2POLAND.
Cluster of Hydrogen Technology Team
The development and advertising clean energy technologies are key elements of the ongoing energy transformation, which are also the statutory objectives of the Hydrogen Technologies Cluster. In 2022, the Hydrogen Technologies Cluster together with the Poznań International Fair organise a conference as part of the 1st Central European Hydrogen Technology Forum H2POLAND. The cluster is responsible for the substantive part, which focuses on economic and business matters.
The Polish Cluster of Hydrogen Technologies, managed by the Pomeranian Regional Chamber of Commerce, has been laying the foundations for the Polish hydrogen economy for the last 5 years. – Since 2017, we have been carrying out activities to promote domestic companies, we analyse global and European trends, help implement business strategies, build partnerships and facilitate the exchange of knowledge through conferences, seminars and EU projects for the Cluster and its members – explains Jarosław Filipczak, President of the Board of the Regional Chamber of Commerce of Pomerania. The organization is known internationally thanks to many successful projects, including: NeptHyne, H2Global, the Pomeranian Hydrogen Valley and the PCHET hydrogen conference, which was held for the fourth time in October 2021.
Today, the Cluster consists of over 50 companies, including experts and entrepreneurs from various areas of zero-emission technologies, energy and engineering, scientific institutions, as well as provincial and local government authorities. – Poland is the fifth producer of hydrogen in the world. We have full know-how, complete supply chains and R&D resources. We are ready for hydrogen in the economy and society – adds Filipczak. The development of the hydrogen technology market and activities strengthening Poland's position among hydrogen producers are the common ambition of the Hydrogen Technologies Cluster and the Poznań International Fair.
During the substantive part of the H2POLAND Forum, organised by the Cluster of Hydrogen Technologies, national and international experts will take the floor. The topics will focus on the following issues: CO2 storage and capture, decarbonisation of transport and TSL logistics, as well as the role of hydrogen in urban, rail and aviation transport. The program will include the latest market analyses, presentations of business models and hydrogen issues of particular interest to local governments. Hydrogen valleys and hubs will be another important issue.
The 1st Central European Hydrogen Technology Forum H2POLAND will be held on 17-18 May 2022 on MTP Poznań Expo fairgrounds.
