Technology close up

The Hydrogen Centre Bozen was designed as a pilot and demonstration plant, where local people and all interested visitors can see and experience how a totally non-polluting fuel is produced from renewable electricity and how this then powers electrically driven fuel cell vehicles from the adjacent hydrogen refuelling station. This is how mobility with a clear conscience looks: there are already five fuel cell buses in Bozen under the EU-funded “CHIC” project and, since August 2014, interested companies and individuals can rent a fuel cell car – the Hyundai ix35 FC – from the European “HyFIVE” project. The future has begun, and South Tyrol is fully involved.
