Welcome to HFC Nordic

Welcome to HFC Nordic 2022 – the conference that gathers Nordic and global stakeholders within the field of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

At this 1½-day conference there will be interesting presentations, inspiring debats, break-out sessions and plenty of opportunities for informal networking. We will explore all links along the hydrogen and fuel cell value chain with specific emphasis on the transport sector.

The Nordic region is an international powerhouse for the green transition and with the region’s dedication to combating climate change through significant renewable energy production and technological innovation, the Nordic countries have immense opportunities to lead the world on the development and implementation of sustainable hydrogen and fuel cell solutions. 

We will examine this development, highlight all the successes and debate how to advance the application of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in all parts of the energy system and all over the world.

Bringing the Nordics together in Copenhagen means plenty of opportunity to network with colleagues and business partners from across the region. Learn new things and create new connections in the beautiful surroundings of Hotel Ottilia and over dinner at the rooftop Restaurant Tramonto overlooking the city of Copenhagen.

The Venue

Centered around the original Carlsberg Brewery, Carlsberg City District – or Carlsberg Byen – is one of the most interesting urban developments in Copenhagen. The old building with their original industrial features have been preserved so the neighbourhood is an eclectric mix between old and new, original and innovative. Hotel Ottilia is a thoroughly modern hotel but with all the charm and history of the old industry building. 

The HFC Nordic conference will be taking place in the hotel’s conference hall with break-out sessions in several of the smaller group and lounge areas.

Please note that we have an agreement with Hotel Ottilia and can offer a 20% discount on an over-night stay at the hotel in connection with the conference.

Simply use the code “EASYPEASY” when booking your room  at www.brochner-hotels.dk.

How to get to the venue

Hotel Ottilia 

The hotel Ottilia is located by the old Carlsberg Brewery in Copenhagen, which is now a fashionable residential area in a pulsating part of the city. 

The Ottilia offers both the venue for the conference and beautiful accomodation for participants. 


Take the M2 metro to “Vanløse” and change at “Kongens Nytorv” to the M3 (“Cityringen”) and get off at “Enghave Plads” (first stop after Copenhagen Central Station). From there it is about an 800 meter walk to the hotel.

You can also take the S-train to Carlsberg Station which is approximately 500 meters from the hotel.

The Next Wave project

The HFC Nordic conference is partly attached to the Nordic Innovation project Next Nordic Green Transport Wave – Large Vehicles (Next Wave).

The goal for Next Wave is to further stimulate the global technological lead, which the Nordic countries have by stimulating the very first hydrogen infrastructure roll-out for larger vehicles while at the same time map how the infrastructure build-up needs to be done, so that the transition to hydrogen vehicles can happen smoothly.

Such roll-out will also benefit the use of hydrogen for trains and the maritime sector.

In the Nordic region we have the unique opportunity to produce the hydrogen in a green manner exploiting renewable electricity production.

Read more about the Next Wave project phases I and II and find all project reports regarding the roll-out of HFC heavy duty transport at Nordic Innovation here.

The Next Wave project is funded by Nordic Innovation.
