The Pure Energy Centre, as part of an international Scottish delegation in the field of hydrogen and fuel cells, met with local actors in Aragon during a two-day visit. 

The framework of the commercial mission promoted by the Department of Economy, Industry and Employment was to share experiences and expertise between members of the Foundation for the Development of New Hydrogen Technologies in Aragon, and the Scottish Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (SHFCA).

Elizabeth Johnson MBE, Pure Energy Centre Business Development Manager and a Director of SHFCA, was amongst the Scottish delegation. She said: “The objective of this meeting was to identify how members of SHFCA and their counterparts in Aragon could work in either the hydrogen and/or renewable energy sectors.”

She added, “it is important that we work with entities that have experiences and similarities to our organisation. This trip will help us to forge a stronger relationship and identify areas where we can work together”.

The delegation had meetings with the general director of Industry, SMEs, Commerce and Handicrafts, Fernando Fernandez. The aim is to deepen the strong relationship that has been built between Aragon and Scotland.

The meeting in Zaragoza last year of the World Congress of the Hydrogen Economy (WHEC 2016) and the international contacts established in this event have also been decisive in the need to organise this important trade mission comprising 23 companies, and institutional representatives of the Governments of Aragon and Scotland.

The director general of Industry, SMEs, Commerce and Craft of the Aragon Government has highlighted "the good historical relations between Aragon and Scotland in the matter of commerce and especially in the last years with an intense collaboration in the field of hydrogen".

Fernández said that his Department has the desire for this mission be "a source of opportunities" for all participating companies. He even recalled that "Aragón has been a land of energy for a century" and pointed out that Hydrogen is "a key vector for the storage of renewable energy."

Scotland's Energy Director Chris Stark said: "Aragon and Scotland have a lot in common. We are both pursuing a future based on renewable energies. This is a great opportunity to show our knowledge and how hydrogen can play its part in this energy transition, as well as to establish new industrial partnerships between Scotland and Aragon. "

The Pure Energy Centre is now in the process of further developing collaborations with Aragon companies including a number of European projects.The PEC have wide experience and expertise in EU projects, and are developing stronger international and regional partnerships.
