Deploying climate-friendly hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in developing and emerging economies – a cooperation between NOW GMBH and GIZ


In the framework of an export initiative from the Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), NOW GmbH National Organisation Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology and the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) will together build up a network in developing and emerging countries in order to advance projects on the climate-friendly use of hydrogen (H2) and fuel cell technologies.

To this effect Dr. Hanno Butsch, NOW GmbH, Head of Division, International Cooperation, and Bernhard Zymla, GIZ, Head of Competence Centre, Energy and Transport signed a cooperation agreement on Friday in Bonn.

System integration and electricity storage are the greatest challenges to a comprehensive energy and transport transition in developing and emerging economies. Along with battery storage, innovative and intelligent system solutions for energy storage and energy conversion will therefore be required. Commissioned by the BMU, Now GmbH is broadening its existing international activities in the area of climate-friendly H2 and fuel cell technologies in emerging and developing economies.

Dr. Klaus Bonhoff, Managing Director of NOW GmbH, explained, “The cooperation between NOW GmbH and GIZ means that going forward, two actors are going to work together who on the one hand, command a high degree of expertise on battery, H2 and fuel cell technologies as well as alternative fuels and on the other, have an extensive network and country-specific knowledge at their disposal.”
