This year, Linde will once again be the exclusive supplier of hydrogen for the fuel-cell cars operated by the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) in Hanover. CEP partners Daimler, GM/Opel, Honda, Hyundai, Toyota and Volkswagen/Audi will be inviting exhibition visitors to take a test drive in their zero-emission vehicles.
