EFCF - European Fuel Cell Forum AG

Final Announcement

The EUROPEAN FUEL CELL FORUM - EFCF is one of the MOST PROMINENT MEETING PLATFORMS for the exchange of scientific and technical information, as well as for the networking between industry and development and suppliers towards future solutions.


The purpose of the European Fuel Cell Forum is the promotion of FUEL CELLS, ELECTROLYSERS and H2 technologies and link the stakeholders through the EFCF Conferences*, Exhibition**, Tutorials, Green Salon & Rondo events, international Project Meetings, literature and media.

Additionally attractive special events such as the GRID SERVICE MARKET symposium, business trips and last but not least very inspiring networking events such as the very favoured "Dinner on the Lake" are organised - Get here some IMPRESSIONS. The EFCF is in the charming area of the picturesque Lake LUCERNE/SWITZERLAND in the hart of Europe (see the video).



The EFCF has a heritage of more than 20 years! As far back as 1994 the 1st EUROPEAN SOFC FORUM attracted leading international speakers as well as a global audience. Since then, a high quality conference series has been established.


The EFCF topics alternate annually:  
On even years the conference concentrates on «Solid Oxide Cells» (SOC): Fuel Cells, Electrolysers and Membrane Reactors and is the REFERENCE EVENT to meet the ENTIRE COMMUNITY.         
On odd years, the conference concentrates on «Hydrogen Fuel Cell and Direct Alcohol Fuel Cell» as well as «Hydrogen Processing: Production, Storage and Infrastructure» and is the LEADING EUROPEAN MEETING PLACE fully dedicated to these subjects.


Every summer the EFCF invites more than 10‘000 stakeholders to participate in this internationally recognised event. More than 300 contributions and posters will be presented in 26 sessions over the course of 3.5 intensive and stimulating days. In addition to the high level scientific content, there are plenary & keynote presentations
on activities and future initiatives in various countries, changes in power generation
& distribution, status of leading FCH industry & major groups and technical highlights. Based on the convincing number and quality of submissions, up to 500 participants from 35–40 countries are usually expected (participate here).


The technical exhibition will be held adjacent to the lecture halls. FCH industry, suppliers, test equipment providers and research laboratories showcase their latest products and services, as well as making focused connections with potential new clients.

Usually between 25-35 exhibitors and suppliers from all parts of the world are exhibiting e.g. new materials, stack and system components, control devices, production technology, qualification and test benches and diagnostic tools alongside research and development services (participate here).
