Welcome to the Center Hydrogen.Bavaria (H2.B)

Ambitious climate protection goals require a joint thinking of the energy, industry and mobility sectors. Hydrogen (H2) offers a variety of solutions and a technological bridge that is to be developed and used in the Free State of Bavaria.

On September 5, 2019, the Bavarian State Government founded the Center Hydrogen.Bavaria (H2.B) to develop and implement the Bavarian hydrogen strategy. The Center’s intention is to bring together industry, science and politics in order to advance the “hydrogen economy” and especially hydrogen in mobility in Bavaria as quickly as possible and to achieve the use of hydrogen open to technology in broad practical application. The Center consists of a board of directors and the strategy and coordination office.

Bavarian companies are ideally positioned to further develop the corresponding technologies and equipment, e.g. electrolysers and fuel cells, to full market maturity and to produce them in large quantities for local and global use. Mobility applications in particular are of central importance for Bavaria and Germany with its leading vehicle manufacturers and suppliers.

Hydrogen Alliance Bavaria

Within the framework of the founding event of H2.B on September 5, 2019, the Bavarian State Government also concluded the Hydrogen Alliance Bavaria with central players of a future hydrogen economy. The partners of the alliance declare that they will contribute to strengthening and expanding Bavaria’s technological competence in the field of innovative hydrogen technologies and support the activities of the Center Hydrogen.Bavaria. The declaration of intent for the Bavarian Hydrogen Alliance can be found here.
