Green hydrogen offers the basis for the decarbonisation of mobility, housing and industrial processes, as required by the Paris climate accord. Saxony is a leading-edge region of R&D in fuel cell and hydrogen technologies and has been for many years. The high density and vast scope of research institutes and innovative companies offers an ideal level of technology readiness to initiate deployment projects now.
The „Innovation Cluster HZwo“, established by the HZwo e.V. and ENERGY SAXONY in 2018, brings together automotive component suppliers with fuel cell developers as well as industry and the transport sector with providers of green hydrogen solutions. It thus provides a platform for the initiation and realization of lighthouse projects in Saxony to create a supply infrastructure for green hydrogen, to promote the production of fuel cell vehicles and to identify and plan economically attractive use cases.The first projects focus on fuel cell-powered trains, busses and other commercial vehicles. The Innovation Cluster HZwo is funded by the Saxon State Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labour and Transport.
The clusters members are supported by Energy Saxony with individual services tailored to their specific needs:
Matchmaking: Assistance in finding cooperation partners
Project planning: Detailed preparation for the project implementation, organization of project meetings
Financing: Fundraising research (private and public)
Representation of interests: Dialogue with political decision-makers and authorities
