100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply

The World Hydrogen Energy Conference (WHEC) will celebrate its 21st edition in Zaragoza (Spain) from 13th to 16th June 2016, organized by the Spanish Hydrogen Association (AeH2) with the collaboration of the Foundation for the Development of Hydrogen Technologies in Aragon (FHa) and under the auspices of the International Association for Hydrogen Energy (IAHE).

WHEC is the world’s most well-known conference in the field of hydrogen energy and has become the hub of the hydrogen and fuel cells community. WHEC combines high quality conferences with a trade fair, networking areas and multiple side events for the purpose of promoting the widespread deployment of hydrogen technologies.

Up to date the number of abstracts submitted for participating in WHEC 2016 is growing day by day. Hence, to ensure that nobody is left out, the Organization has decided to extend the Call for Abstracts deadline to the 30th of November.

Furthermore, the Spanish Hydrogen Association would like to thank everybody that has submitted their abstracts on time for their work and efforts. It is possible to complete, modify and update the submitted abstracts on the personal area -available here– within the new deadline.

New important WHEC dates:

  • Abstract Submission deadline extended: 30th November, 2015.
  • Abstract acceptance notification extended: 31st January, 2016.
  • Early bird discount deadline extended: 15th February, 2016.

You can find in the attachment the WHEC 2016 Brochure with general information of the Conference.
