Workshop on hydrogen and zero-emission trains

SINTEF and their partners in the RegioHyt consortium are arranging a workshop on hydrogen and zero-emission trains, and hereby invite stakeholders in the industry and other interested parties to participate.


Thon Hotel Arena, Lillestrøm
Add to calendar
Registration deadline

The workshop will be arranged as a part of the project “Regional hydrogen trains on Czech railways” (RegioHyt). The project is financed by the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic with EEA funds from Norway.

To make the workshop as valuable as possible we encourage all participants to sign up to hold a talk about energy sources in railway (hydrogen, batteries, catenary, diesel, and everything in between).

Approximately half the workshop will be assigned to talks given by the RegioHyt project, with the other half assigned to guest talks.

The workshop will be free to attend, and a simple lunch will be provided.

SINTEF has reserved a few hotel rooms for the event. If you are going to book a room and the hotel is fully booked, please contact or .
