One of the great challenges of our time is to secure the energy supply at the same time as limiting environmental impact and reducing emissions of unwanted pollutants. Hydrogen facilitates the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources and a sustainable energy system.

Hydrogen can be used to store, transport and provide energy. It is extremely flexible, as hydrogen can be produced from all types of energy source.

It can also be used as energy in fuel cells capable of replacing combustion engines in vehicles, as well as for providing household energy.

We are currently working on the following:

  • Construction machinery with fuel cells
  • Hydrogen in marine applications
  • Hydrogen safety
  • Hydrogen as an energy store
  • Hydrogen infrastructure and synergies with other fuels
  • Future services
  • Hydrogen production and product creation
  • Fuel cell cargo bike
  • Off-Grid energy systems
  • Material development and testing
