🚗 HYVIA, a pioneering ecosystem for hydrogen mobility in Europe.

🗓️ From 2 to 12 October 2023, HYVIA will bring together a hundred or so actors committed to hydrogen mobility to take stock of its H2 ecosystem developed over the last two years: a bold path for pioneers in a hydrogen sector still in the development phase, according to its promoters.

🔌 A pioneer in hydrogen mobility since its creation in 2021, HYVIA is supported by its two founding groups: Groupe Renault, at the forefront of automotive mobility that is reinventing itself, and Plug, an expert in hydrogen solutions for more than 20 years.

🌐 With these two areas of expertise, HYVIA has been able to deploy a complete H2 ecosystem of hydrogen-powered light commercial vehicles, refuelling, maintenance and financing solutions for professionals, as well as the production of fuel cells or low-carbon hydrogen by electrolysis.

Integrated in the Major Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI) “Hy2Tech”, HYVIA has a team of 130 agents who have initiated a commercial, after-sales, engineering and industrial dynamic, with strong partners and a network with all H2 players, including Hydrogen Europe and France Hydrogen.

🌱 Driving Green Hydrogen: The Example of Donau-Ries

There is still a long way to go before green hydrogen is ready for practical use. The exemplary example of Donau-Ries impresses even Hubert Aiwanger, Bavarian Minister of Economics.

🏗️ In Donauwörth (Donau-Ries district), the Minister of State learned about plans to build an H2 infrastructure in the northern district of Swabia.

Aiwanger praised the approach taken in Donau-Ries: “The project in Donauwörth to produce green hydrogen locally with an electrolyser and supply the region with an H2 filling station is the right approach and a good example of the structure of a hydrogen infrastructure. The concept provides inspiration on how a sustainable and economically viable solution can be designed in the region”.

⚙️ In this way, hydrogen can advance as a technology.

💡 The Minister of Economics also mentioned the Bavarian funding programmes for the construction of a hydrogen infrastructure. “Bavaria is a pioneer in financing. We generously support the construction of H2 refuelling stations and electrolysers. We have already financed 19 hydrogen filling stations in the Free State. More will follow. And our electrolyser programme is in high demand. As Minister of Economics, I focused on hydrogen from the very beginning and we developed a strategy very quickly. That is why Bavaria is the model country for hydrogen in Germany,” Aiwanger explained.
