For the 20th time now, the German gas industry awarded creative and innovative business ideas and solutions at the “Innovationspreis der Deutschen Gaswirtschaft” event, which was held on 22 November 2018 in Berlin. The prize was awarded in different categories from “Research and Development” to “Efficient Energy Concepts” or “Innovative Products” and was complemented with an Innovation Talk. This year, more than 50 projects competed for the prize and HYGEN, one of InnoEnergy’s promising start-ups from Latvia, was among the top 3 companies nominated in the “Mobility & Traffic” category.
HYGEN develops a home refueling station for Natural Gas Vehicles. With the gas infrastructure and the innovative CNG tank system for domestic purpose, the solution allows a natural gas vehicle to be fuelled in just three minutes. This modern concept of fuel supply offers energysuppliers the opportunity to benefit from the favourable and environmentally-friendly fuel and, thus, helps to further boost the sales of natural gas vehicles.
