They not only exchanged the problems, obstacles, solutions, and development proposals in the commercialization process but also discussed how to jointly promote the commercial use of fuel cells and how to support China’s hydrogen fuel cell industry most actively and profoundly. 

 

2nd day: Four parallel sessions + Test drive

 

Through four parallel sessions themed by "Hydrogen fuel cell commercialization, Hydrogen generation, transportation and distribution, Fuel cell stacks & critical components, as well as standards, regulations and testing techniques", the congress made an in-depth analysis on the development of hydrogen fuel cell industry.

This congress plays a positive role in promoting the development of China's fuel cell vehicle industry and the international exchanges.

 

It allows representatives to fully understand domestic and international commercialization progresses and markets of the industry, leading technology and products and relevant policy standards of China and worldwide. Warm atmosphere during the congress makes lecturers and visitors more confident on H2 energy and FCV development.

 

The success of the congress embodies the Chinese government's concern and support for the fuel cell vehicle industry, and the gradual optimism about the development of the industry by all parties related. The doubling of attendees directly reflects the industry's popularity. The rich, in-depth content of the congress and its successful holding, on the other hand, have promoted the exchange among industries, enhanced the understanding of the development of fuel cell vehicle industry, and boosted their confidence, making them more motivated to invest in the industry. The successful convening of this international congress in Rugao, Jiangsu Province will actively promote the local economic development and raise the profile of Rugao Hydrogen Energy Town around the world.
