The hydrogen industry is one of the fastest growing industries in both transport and energy sectors. At present, many projects are underway around the world regarding the development of hydrogen production, its storage, distribution, as well as the use for energy or transport purposes.

2019 was a breakthrough year, this year the capacity of the fuel cells produced and used for the first time exceeded 1 GW. Many international reports predict that there will now be a sharp increase in the number of hydrogen fuel and energy installations.

The European Union has announced the H2Bus programme, under which 1,000 hydrogen buses will be implemented in European cities.

The number of active stations where you can fill up compressed hydrogen in the world has reached 340, in some countries the network of refuelling stations allows relatively free movement of cars with fuel cells. Many publications predict that the number of hydrogen refuelling stations in 2030 will exceed 25,000 globally. In the automotive industry, companies already offer 10 different types of hydrogen-powered cars to their customers.

The number of hydrogen cars will increase rapidly in the near future. In 2030, Japan predicts that the number of cars with fuel cells will exceed 800,000, while in China this number is expected to exceed 1,000,000.

Heavy transport also participates in decarbonising transport by implementing hydrogen solutions for buses, trucks, trains and ships.

In the energy industry, the main direction of development is micro-cogeneration based on hydrogen and the development of Power2Gas technology, i.e. the production of hydrogen using electrolysis and renewable energy sources. Widespread implementation of these technologies will make us truly "green".

HydrogenTech also participates in the development of this industry.
