What role can hydrogen play in supplying energy sustainably? That’s the question during Hydrogen Knowledge Week from June 23 to June 30, 2022, at Kronenplatz square in central Karlsruhe. The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the KIT Energy Center and TRIANGEL Open Space will be presenting a varied program including lectures, discussions, an exhibition, and a student lab for hands-on experiments. The media and the public are invited to attend.

Hydrogen may be the smallest element in the periodic table, but it can do big things. As an energy source, hydrogen is easy to transport and has many uses. It can replace fossil fuels, store electricity from renewable energy sources, enable sustainable mobility, and link different energy sectors. In addition, hydrogen is also useful in the production of valuable specialty chemicals. Researchers at KIT are working on a wide variety of solutions involving hydrogen to drive the energy transition. The KIT Energy Center, one of the largest energy research centers in Europe, will be presenting these technologies to the general public and answering questions about them.

Hydrogen Knowledge Week will take place at TRIANGEL Open Space, KIT’s new innovation, start-up and transfer center, at Kronenplatz square (Kaiserstraße 93, 76133 Karlsruhe). The program, which looks at the fascinating world of hydrogen from a variety of perspectives, includes lectures, discussions and hands-on activities.
