Green hydrogen may serve as a chemical storage which helps solve the challenge posed by the volatility of renewable energy. In mobility applications, this makes it possible to combine local carbon neutrality with short charging times. Energy conversion into propulsion can be achieved electrochemically in fuel cells. These generate electricity highly efficiently and thus power an almost silent electric drivetrain. Alternatively, hydrogen can be used in combustion engines. These in turn are robust against environmental influences, hydrogen impurities, and can dissipate heat better.

In the presentation, both technologies will be considered and strengths and weaknesses will be worked out in order to identify suitable areas of application.

The video recording of the lecture and discussion will be available later.

You are welcome to pass on the announcements to acquaintances and interested people. Everyone is welcome. You are welcome to draw attention to the lectures by displaying the enclosed posters.
