A step-by-step guide to build hydrogen filling stations
A step-by-step guide to build hydrogen filling stations
Hydrogen is considered a promising solution for mobility without fossil fuels. What is still missing, however, is a nation-wide network of fueling stations. One reason for this: The approval procedure for the planning and construction of hydrogen filling stations is still very confusing, as experience is largely lacking.
