H2 Moves Berlin is pleased to announce that the joint pilot project of Toyota Germany, Anglo American and SafeDriver Group is an “Excellence Partner” of this year’s GREENTECH FESTIVAL (GTF) in Berlin. Europe’s largest sustainability festival showcases and celebrates ideas and innovations from the fields of mobility, energy, infrastructure and food, and aims to inspire as many people as possible to live sustainably with green technologies.
Hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) are an important technology with a lot to offer, and not just in the heavy-duty vehicle sector. The rapid refueling and long range of FCEVs make them strong solutions for green cities, especially in the context of efficient fleet management for passenger vehicles. One of the many examples already demonstrating the benefits of hydrogen in cities is H2 Moves Berlin, Germany’s largest fleet of hydrogen passenger vehicles.
At the GTF, a high-profile panel will discuss the rationale behind the H2 Moves Berlin project and the broader ecosystem for further adoption of this important technology as part of the energy transition. The panel will take place on 15 June from 15.30 to 16.15 on the Deepdive Stage of the conference programme.
Participants in the panel will be Benny Oeyen, Executive Head, Market Development, Anglo American; Ferry Franz, Director Hydrogen Affairs Europe & Group Representative Office Berlin Toyota Motor Europe NV/SA; Thomas Mohnke, Senior Executive Partner, SafeDriver Group GmbH; and Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas von Unwerth, an expert on alternative propulsion systems from Chemnitz University of Technology.
As part of the Driving Experience, visitors can also experience hydrogen for themselves by test-driving our cars in the outdoor area of the GTF exhibition.
H2 Moves Berlin is a joint pilot project of Toyota Germany, Anglo American as well as the SafeDriver Group with ENNOO. With the largest hydrogen fleet in commercial passenger transport in Germany, H2 Moves Berlin aims to offer a sustainable and emission-free mobility option and create broad acceptance for the alternative drive technology. 50 Toyota Mirai (Fuel consumption according to WLPT: hydrogen combined 0.9-0.8 kg/100 km; electricity consumption combined 0 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined according to WLTP 0 g/km) are already on the roads of Berlin, and the fleet will be expanded to up to 200 vehicles in the coming months. The Toyota Mirai are bookable via the Uber app and can be specially ordered with the option “Comfort Electric – Premium Hydrogen / Electric Vehicles”.
