Hydrogenics Awarded Two Renewable Energy Projects in Europe

Hydrogen Seen as Growing Solution for Reliable Power

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 28, 2009) - Hydrogenics Corporation (TSX:HYG)(NASDAQ:HYGS), a leading developer and manufacturer of hydrogen generation and fuel cell products, today announced that it has received orders for two fuel cell power module solutions - one in Greenland and the other in France - for renewable energy projects. At both locations, the Company will deliver HyPM Rack stationary systems to be utilized for primary and backup power.

In Greenland, the power modules will be delivered to Nukissiorfiit, the national energy company, in the capital of Nuuk as part of project H2KT. This initiative is meant to analyze the potential of using hydrogen for energy storage and management in Greenland, such that the country can better leverage its natural hydro-generation resources. In France, the power modules will be used for energy generation to supplement photovoltaic and wind power at the new headquarters of the Abalone Group, a human resources consulting firm located in the city of Nantes. The Abalone building is planned to be totally independent of the national grid. Delivery to both Abalone and Nukissiorfiit is anticipated for later this year. Electrolyzers are expected to be bid in future phases to store renewable energy in the form of hydrogen at each location.

"These are exciting developments that demonstrate the growing importance of hydrogen for energy storage and management," said Daryl Wilson, President and CEO. "We continue to believe that renewable energy solutions offer a large opportunity for Hydrogenics and are pursuing this market aggressively."
