MARCH 2020 | BERLIN | EVENT The Energy commission of the Federal Association of Small and Medium-sized Businesses (BVMW) focuses on hydrogen
The BVMW Energy Commission met in Berlin on March 12 to discuss current issues relating to the energy transition.
The aim of the commission is to give politicians recommendations for implementation, always keeping an eye on the competitiveness of German SMEs. Chaired by the Head of Economics Dr. Hans-Jürgen Völz and the deputy chairman of the commission, Prof. Eike Weber, they discussed the topic “hydrogen” on March 12th. The company APEX Energy was invited as a guest. Mischa Paterna (Head of Sales and Marketing) presented a current overview of the market situation.
In addition to general information on the technology, possible application scenarios in the areas of mobility, heating, industrial use and the necessary political framework conditions were presented. This was followed by a dedicated discussion about accompanying framework conditions such as security of supply, acceptance of use and embedding in today's energy structures. Against the background of the announced "national hydrogen strategy", companies are paying more attention to the federal government and its guidelines for achieving the guaranteed climate targets. There is an agreement that hydrogen plays a crucial role as an energy source.
This was also confirmed by the President of BVMW Mario Ohoven, who personally took the time to thank the Commission for its voluntary commitment and impressively underlined the importance of the topic for SMEs in Germany in his presentation.
