Welcome to Roads2HyCom

The Roads2HyCom project is a partnership of 29 stakeholder organisations supported by the European Commission Framework Six programme. The project has studied technical and socio-economic issues associated with the use of Fuel Cells and Hydrogen in a sustainable energy economy, by combining expert studies in technology status, energy supply and socio-economics with an active programme of engagement with key stakeholders, especially early adopters of the technologies.

Regional Development and Hydrogen Projects

Roads2HyCom, in co-operation with HyRaMP, ran a series of three workshops for regional and community leaders who wanted to know more about setting up successful hydrogen and fuel cell community projects and their value in regional development. The workshops covered areas such as:

  • Success factors for running a successful project
  • Finance and funding options
  • Case studies from past and existing projects

Roads2HyCom Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Wiki

Sharing information is the key to promoting new technologies. This is particularly important if the technology is on the edge of demonstration and commercialisation. Therefore, Roads2HyCom has developed Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Wiki, an on-line knowledge database for hydrogen and fuel cells. The database contains articles on the “state of the art” of hydrogen related technologies, from production processes and infrastructure, to storage and fuel cells.
