The French Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Platform HyPaC held its General Assembly on June 21st and gathered its members to propose an evolution of the Platform.

HyPaC and the “Association Française de l’Hydrogène” (AFH2) will mutualise their efforts to accelerate the hydrogen and fuel cell technologies’ deployment in France in a new strong national structure which will federate the hydrogen and fuel cell community in France.

In this aim, the “Association Française de l’Hydrogène” becomes the “Association Française pour l’Hydrogène et les Piles à Combustible – AFHYPAC” and follows the same goals as HyPaC.

AFHYPAC will send in September a “call for membership” to all French companies involved in the field of hydrogen energy. It will be supported by the French governmental institutions. AFHYPAC will hold its first General Assembly at the autumn 2011.
