Arrival and presentation of the hydrogen bus in Celje – Faculty of Logistics

The area of the North Adriatic countries, united in the North Adriatic Hydrogen Valley (NAHV), has a number of projects in the pipeline to produce and use green hydrogen and thus proactively support the European energy transition. In this context, the European Union is funding the “JIVE 2 CEE Hydrogen Bus Roadshow” – a hydrogen bus roadshow in carefully selected cities in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).

On the arrival of the hydrogen bus in Slovenia and the start of its 7-day tour around the country, you are cordially invited to Tolmin on Thursday, 17 November 2022 at 9:00 am for an environmental consultation on the possibilities of using hydrogen technologies for bus transport and a H2 Bus tour. Participants will also be able to see the conclusion of the H2STUDENT hydrogen education workshop, which will be held at the same time at the Tolmin High School.
