StasHH wins Best Success Story Award at the European Hydrogen Week
The sixth edition of the Clean Hydrogen Partnership Awards - presented in Brussels on Wednesday, 22 November 2023 during the European Hydrogen Week - celebrates how European research and innovation continue to drive the clean energy revolution further and higher. The StasHH project was awarded the "Best success story" Award. Melissa Verykios, chair of the Clean Hydrogen Partnership governing board, presented the award.
The awards applaud the vision and drive of the pioneers in hydrogen technology: the policymakers, researchers and leaders of industry. StasHH is helping to meet the growing demand for zero-emission heavy-duty transport through the standardisation of heavy-duty fuel cell modules.
“Standardisation of heavy-duty fuel cell modules is key to achieving economies of scale, lower costs and to accelerating deployment,” said Federico Zenith, consortium coordinator with research organisation SINTEF. He further added: “The StasHH project has proposed an industry standard for module size, interfaces and communication, with the direct involvement of leading fuel-cell system and original equipment manufacturers from the maritime, rail, road and off-road sectors.”
The standard is intended for European trucks, but can be transferred to all heavy-duty applications, both on land and sea. StasHH has attracted significant attention and many vehicle manufacturers have asked to be involved. The project has established an advisory board that includes several multinational companies and is in contact with all other companies interested in the standard.
WaterstofNet is among others the dissemination and exploitation leader for the StasHH project.
This year’s awards categories recognise the Best Innovation, Best Success Story, Best Project Outreach and the best European H2 Valleys of the Year.
