Ringkøbing County Council, Jutland, has granted DKK 3 m (USD 480,000) for a demonstration facility for hydrogen powered mini plants and vehicles targeted at companies and universities, as part of the county's efforts to make Denmark a world leader in hydrogen technology. The demonstration facility will be placed at Hydrogen Innovation & Research Center (HIRC) in Herning, and inauguration is scheduled for 30 March.

Jens-Christian Møller, director of HIRC comments: "The hydrogen society lies 20 to 30 years ahead, but the time to focus on it is now. We want to create a natural meeting point for companies and research institutions. The demonstration facility will show a vision for the hydrogen society of the future in a tangible way".

At the demonstration facility, 15 companies and research institutions will show how far they have progressed with hydrogen technology.

Niels Jørgen Hyldgaard, head of department at Ringkøbing County Council says: "The objective is to make hydrogen technology interesting to as many as possible so that we create a market and thus jobs. The county is already a long way ahead regarding wind turbines, and we would like to support the renewable energy industry by focusing on hydrogen".
