Aragon Hydrogen Foundation – Fundación para el Desarrollo de las Nuevas Tecnologías del Hidrógeno en Aragón

The Foundation is a private non-profit organization promoted by the Aragon Government, public and private companies. Currently the board is formed by sixty-six stakeholders belonging to all economy sectors: automotive, chemistry, power generation, financial, educational, engineering, R&D and real estate. Its team performs R&D and consultancy projects, in cooperation with national and international companies. FHa supports the regional strategy for the uptake of FCH technologies, publishing the Hydrogen Master Plan in Aragón (2007–2015), and showcasing the whole chain (production, management and efficient use), obtaining hydrogen from renewable sources. The facility includes hydrogen production by electrolysis, storage, dispensing and use in fuel cells, including vehicles. Over 1.000 people visit yearly the FHa premises, contributing to awareness and dissemination to society.
