First large-scale hydrogen event in Ukraine! It will be held on May 17-18, 2018 in Kyiv. http://inef.org.ua/en/
The event is organized by the specialized energy association Ukrainian Hydrogen Council.
European Hydrogen Energy Conference (EHEC 2018 – www.ehec.info), will take place 14-16 March 2018 in the Trade Fairs and Congress Center of Malaga (Spain). The event is organized by the Spanish Hydrogen Association (AeH2).
EHEC is the European event of reference in the field of the hydrogen energy. This conference provides an excellent framework for updates on hydrogen and fuel cell technologies and represents the best setting to show the latest advances in research, projects and products.
This new edition will bring together professionals, companies, research centres, public and private institutes and decision makers from throughout the entire hydrogen and fuel cell and related sectors. A participation of more than 400 attendees from about 40 different countries is expected.
EHEC is a must-attend event for the hydrogen and fuel cells community as well as for everyone interested in hydrogen energy.
Scientists from Vernadsky Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry and Frantsevich Institute for Problems of Materials Science of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine have developed Experimental photoelectrochemical cell for hydrogen accumulation under the action of sunlight. When the anode of this device is exposed to Sun, its cathode starts to produce hydrogen via photoelectrochemical reactions.
Such system can be used to generate hydrogen, which can be transformed later into electricity in a fuel cell, where hydrogen is oxidized by oxygen from air. It can be also used as a photoaccumulator, which will ensure uninterrupted power supply of consumers under conditions of changing light intensity.
In July of this 2017 year we met with the President of Romanian Association for Hydrogen Energy, Ioan Iordache. He was presenting achievements of Romania in the field of hydrogen energy. It was in the frame of Czech hydrogen days, taking place along with the World Hydrogen Technology Conference WHTC2017 in Prague. Czech hydrogen activists were receiving their colleagues from many Eastern European countries: Slovenia, Romania, Poland, Bulgaria and Ukraine.
We used this opportunity to interview Dr. Iordache.
Ukraine has a strong scientific foundation for implementation of hydrogen technologies. Since 2011 in the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine there is ongoing targeted complex program of fundamental research "Hydrogen in alternative energy and new technologies"
This program has 43 research projects, which are taking place in 17 institutions. Here is the list of research projects conducted in scientific laboratories in Ukraine.
