HZwei turns 20


It’s been over 20 years since the “Magazin für Wasserstoff und Brennstoffzellen” started covering the hydrogen and fuel cell sector. H2Tec, as it was called at the time, was launched by Hanover-based SunMedia Verlags GmbH at the turn of this century. In 2005, the company decided to cease publication and transfer the rights to the trade magazine to Hydrogeit Verlag, then and now Germany’s premier source for books about hydrogen and fuel cells.

The H2Tec magazine was issued twice a year and was printed mainly in two colors, blue and black. With 20 or 24 pages, it was relatively thin. But as a quick look in the archive will show, some of the experts who used to write for the publication are still working in the hydrogen and fuel cell sector today.


When Hydrogeit Verlag took over, it changed more than the name on the magazine cover. Issues were now 32 pages and came in an entirely new design. Since then, the magazine has grown with the rising interest in hydrogen and fuel cells. Today, it is an average of 64 pages. Hydrogeit Verlag also did away with the English paragraphs that summarized a few of the articles in H2Tec. Instead, it launched an English edition of HZwei, as the magazine was now called, in 2015 and named it “H2-international – the e-Journal on Hydrogen and Fuel Cells.”

Sven Geitmann, the editor-in-chief and founder of Hydrogeit Verlag, was pleased to note that “now in its 15th year, HZwei has grown more popular than ever. I would like to thank all our contributors, who have helped turn this magazine into an industry staple and continue to fill its pages with novel and exciting stories each quarter.“ He said that “Hydrogeit Verlag will keep working hard to ensure we produce a publication that both champions and challenges the hydrogen and fuel cell industry.“

H2-international – The e-Journal on Hydrogen and Fuel Cells,

Hydrogeit Verlag, a small publisher based in Oberkrämer near Berlin, is Germany‘s first and only source for hydrogen and fuel cell publications. Founded in 2004 by Sven Geitmann, an engineer by trade, the business sells books, e-books and teaching materials that offer insights into the hydrogen and fuel cell sector as well as other markets for renewable technologies and clean fuels. It also publishes “HZwei, das Magazin für Wasserstoff und Brennstoffzellen” and its English edition “H2-international, the e-Journal on Hydrogen and Fuel Cells.” Both magazines are issued four times a year.

    Thank you very much, Sven, for your dedicated and so sympathetically work.
    I quite well remember, when you took over the magazine and was admiring every step you took.
    And I am sure, there are a lot more steps to come form your corner.
    All the best for those!
