In 2016, the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) undertook significant efforts to reach out to all European regions and cities having an interest in the potential use of fuel cell and hydrogen (FCH) based products to help them achieve their decarbonisation goals.

With the specific goal of establishing an ambitious collaboration platform to facilitate market introduction, the FCH JU took on a large-scale effort to reach out to as many regions and cities in Europe as possible and offered to work closely with them to develop market opportunities. Up to date, 88 regions and cities from 22 European countries became a part of this initiative.

Several workshops will be organised under this initiative throughout Europe in April 2018. The workshops aim at promoting knowledge exchange on best practices in FCH project development and to discuss the way forward for European cities and regions to implement FCH projects. The regional workshops address members of the Regions and Cities Initiative, however, any additional interested stakeholders are also welcome to attend.

The FCH JU is a unique public private partnership supporting research, technological development and demonstration (RTD) activities in fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologies in Europe. Its aim is to accelerate the market introduction of these technologies, realising their potential as an instrument in achieving a carbon-lean energy system.
