HyER was established in collaboration with the EU Commission in 2008. HyER supports the deployment and uptake of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies and electro-mobility in Europe to contribute positively to carbon dioxide emissions reduction, environment protection as well as economic growth and employment. Since 2008, HyER, the European Association for Hydrogen and fuel cells and Electro-mobility in European Regions representing over 35 regions and cities in 13 Member States supports the deployment and uptake of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies and electro-mobility in Europe.
What we do
Through the active monitoring and collecting of relevant project results and industrial developments and as partner in several EU projects for dissemination and communication, HyER seeks to develop fact-based policy at EU, national and local level to establish robust local deployment channels and a first customer base. Since last December, HyER is coordinating the European Electromobility Observatory (EEO) which will monitor battery electric and fuel cell electric developments in and their link to energy networks across Europe to facilitate fact-based policy at all levels and to engage a large number of local authorities and industry stakeholders.
Our role in the ene.field project
– Engage with local authorities and local distribution system operators to identify role fuel cell in clean local energy networks;
– Provide members with insight of the socio-economic barriers to widespread deployment of mCHP;
– Engage with EU stakeholders to increase political acceptance.
