HyER – Hydrogen Fuel Cells and Electro-mobility in European Regions. It has 2 projects underway: HyTransit and High V.LO-City

Hydrogen Europe –  represents the European industry, national associations and research centers active in the hydrogen and fuel cell sector. The association partners with the European Commission in the innovation programme (FCH JU).

FCH JU – Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking

FC EB – Fuel Cell Electrical Buses

H2Nodes – Evolution of a European hydrogen refueling station network by mobilizing the local demand and value chains.

JIVE – Joint Initiative for hydrogen Vehicles across Europe

Element Energy – UK company leading the consultancy team to deploy 152 FC buses across 14 cities in Europe (UK cluster – 88 FC buses, Northen & Eastern Europe – 50, Germany-Italy – 88 buses, France – 15, Benelux cluster – 50 FC buses).

HIT 2 – Corridors Hydrogen Infrastructure for Transport

TEN-T – Trans-European Transport Network is a European Commission policy directed towards the implementation and development of a Europe-wide network of roads, railway lines, inland waterways, maritime shipping routes, ports, airports and rail-road terminals.

Vätgas – Swedish Hydrogen Association

4Progress – for the Progress, Swedish Hydrogen Association’s business entity

Green hydrogen – hydrogen generated from renewable energy sources

Gray hydrogen – hydrogen generated from natural gas or some other fossil fuel

NT Bene – one of the partners in the project H2Nodes, who coordinates the development of zero-emission hydrogen production and refuelling in the city of Pärnu

SOFC – Solid oxide fuel cell. By using SOFC, energy is made out of fuel and air. The fuel, and the oxygen present in the air, injected into the fuel cell, produce a direct electrochemical reaction in the fuel cell, generating electricity and heat.
