Surrounding Events


The Stakeholders General Assembly 2011 will feature an exhibition for companies and researchers to show the latest developments in fuel cell and hydrogen technologies. The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking kindly invite exhibitors to join us free of charge and to contribute to the success of this event.

The Exhibition is especially interesting for exhibitors who wish to reach out to Brussels decision makers in the environment, energy, transport and industry sectors (European Commission, European Parliament, etc). We would like to encourage exhibitors to, as much as possible, showcase practical fuel cell and hydrogen applications so as to visually demonstrate the potential of the technology.

Exhibition Floor Space

The Exhibition will take place in the European Commission Charlemagne building, on the second floor, around the hemicycle where the Stakeholders General assembly will take place and in the networking area in close vicinity to coffee bars and catering area, to ensure a constant flow of interested congress delegates in the areas of the exhibition.

If there is enough interest, the Exhibition area will expand into the first floor.

Please consult here the plans of the Charlemagne building exhibition areas. ( 978 Kb)

Places will be allocated on a first arrived- first served basis.

We’d also like to give companies and organisations the opportunity to also exhibit posters (A1 Format)

The 2011 edition of Drive N’ Ride will mark the event’s third year in Brussels. In 2009 and 2010, more than 120 participants tested fuel cell electric vehicles, including high-level representatives of the EU institutions as well as journalists and the non-governmental sector.

New this year, 5 companies will participate to the Drive n’Ride with their models.

Each test drive or ride will take participants to the hydrogen refueling mobile station provided by Daimler and Linde and placed for the occasion in Parc du Cinquantenaire, just above the EU institutions area at Schuman. A short refueling demonstration will help participants better understand the full concept of hydrogen transport and highlight the need for related infrastructure development.

Experts in FCH technology will accompany all test-drives to explain more about the benefits of the technology and to answers participants’ questions. A central information point of the event will be located at one of the Brussels’ key hubs, Place du Luxembourg, in front of the European Parliament, in order to engage both with key EU stakeholders as well as broader public.
