The Autonomous Region of Aragon boasts a high degree of economic development and social welfare. Its geographical location and excellent communications´ infrastructure with the rest of Spain as well as the South of France make Aragon a strategic hub and privileged location for production plants and distribution warehouses.
From 2003 onwards, the promotion of hydrogen technologies has been a fundamental strategic line for the Government of Aragon regarding energy and industrial policy, with a firm commitment towards Small and Medium Sized Companies and sectors such as the car-making, transport, chemistry or energy industries. The government played a leading role in the search for a partnership formula with a view to developing market-oriented knowledge by putting forward the idea of setting up the Foundation for the Development of New Hydrogen Technologies in Aragon.
