This online seminar will discuss the challenges and opportunities for hydrogen trucks across Europe, with focus on heavy vehicles and the truck manufacturers coming to the market.
In this webinar, we will share the development plans for hydrogen trucks and their infrastructure in our partners’ regions Ireland and Iceland, the latter linked with the Nordic Hydrogen Corridor through the Next Wave project, supported by Nordic Innovation.
The webinar will follow up with an overview of the implemented hydrogen trucks project in Switzerland, with emphasis on the challenges and opportunities, as well as the level of involvement of the Swiss government. To close the session, two truck manufacturers will share the recent developments on the construction and delivery of hydrogen trucks on the road and the market opportunities they envisage.
At the end of the seminar, the speakers will participate in a discussion panel to comment on hydrogen trending topics and any highlighted questions from the public.

Our online seminars aim to transfer the knowledge of hydrogen technologies to a wide audience, including industry stakeholders, end-users and government agencies from a vast area in Europe. HUGE is part of the Hydrogen Triple Alliance (HTA), an association of three EU-funded projects (HUGE, SEAFUEL & GenComm) supported by Interreg programs that combine experience and knowledge from a wide range of organisations. The HTA is designed to disseminate the opportunities that hydrogen technologies offer, especially in Northwest Europe, Atlantic Area and Northern Periphery and Arctic regions.
