The hydrogen route

The hydrogen route connects the locations of hydrogen and fuel cell technology within the metropolitan area Ruhr which deal with innovative storage of renewable energy, emission-free mobility and decentralised power supply. It includes currently running research, demonstration and industry activities.

Community groups of ten to 30 people from North Rhine-Westphalia can visit several locations on the guided tour with their own vehicle, accompanied by a representative of the h2 network ruhr e.V. We are looking forward to your enquiry, even if sometimes a tour request might not be fulfilled. For visiting single locations we can provide you with the right contact person.

Please contact our network developer. The number of dates is limited.

  •  Hydrogenics GmbH: fuel cell system building in Gladbeck
