Welcome to HZwo!

The Saxony innovation cluster for fuel cell and hydrogen technolgy

Our Mission


A Saxon Value chain for fuel cells and hydrogen

The innovation cluster HZwo initiates and supports research and development around the topics of fuel cells and green hydrogen as well as the development of a comprehensive value creation network in Saxony. The production of fuel cells, ranging from material selection to distribution, should be carried out in compliance with the resource-saving, ecologically and economically sustainable management.


  Early Access to new markets

HZwo enables its cluster participants an early access to future sales markets and thus a technology advantage in order to sustainably secure Saxony's future as a high-tech location. In addition to the classic areas of automobile production, such as transmissions and compressors, fuel cell vehicles also offer a market potential for companies of other Saxon branches.


  Building expertise in a High Tech Knowledge Field

The results generated by the cluster’s rearch projects contribute to the bundling of fuel cell expertixe and should build a new industrial sector in Saxony. Saxon key competences for the sectors will be strengthened directly or indirectly: Mobility, Life Science, Mechanical Engineering, Microelectronic and ICT, Environmental and Energy Technology.
