On the second day, partners attended the  stakeholders events “Hydrogen for transports” organized by AREAM at the Madeira Institute of Wine, Embroidery and Crafts (Instituto do Vinho, Bordado e Artesanato da Madeira - IVBM) within the frame of the second day meeting session. The workshop, which started with a presentation of SEAFUEL project, included the participation of the companies Caetano Bus and Aquartera, and the European Center for Marine Energy (EMEC) that presented their vision on the use of hydrogen in transport, with an essential focus on land and sea transport.

It will be tested in the Canary Islands, Madeira and the Aran Islands and will use the experience and infrastructure of the partners in the field of renewable energies, namely solar, wind and marine, to demonstrate the viability of hydrogen as a fuel to be used by the local transport authorities.
