Icelandic New Energy participated as a sub-contractor within the HySociety project, which came to an end in December 2004. HySociety was aimed at analysing Hydrogen projects and initiatives that have been taken throughout Europe and the social, technical or economic barriers to implement Hydrogen as an energy carrier throughout the continent of Europe. The project management was in the hands of the Institute Superior Technologico in Lisbon, Portugal. The project is considered a mayor input into the hydrogen roadmap for Europe.
