FC³ Fuel Cell Conference Chemnitz









Clean Drives. Efficiently produced.

Following the successful first event in 2019 we cordially invite you to the second   FC³ Fuel Cell Conference Chemnitz 2021!

Fuel cell technology, as an efficient and CO2-neutral vehicle propulsion system, has been given a boost with the production vehicles from Hyundai, Toyota and Honda. Fuel cell hydrogen fueling meets modern mobility demands for low emissions and long ranges with short refueling times. For the nationwide breakthrough, there is a lack of infrastructure for hydrogen supply. In addition, reducing the currently high production and material costs are the biggest challenges that need to be addressed.

With the motto “Clean drives. Efficiently produced.”, the conference focuses on the aspects of fuel cells that are suitable for series production and their hydrogen powertrain, as well as efficient production using state-of-the-art production processes.

The conference is organized by HZwo and the Fraunhofer-Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology IWU and takes place at Carlowitz Congresscenter in Chemnitz. It appeals to scientists and engineers to discuss the latest trends and developments in research and industrial applications.

We look forward to welcoming you in Chemnitz in November 2021!
