Arctic Hydrogen Energy Applications and Demonstrations (AHEAD)

Design, construction and development of the year-round Snowflake International Arctic Station (IAS) based on fully-autonomous hydrogen energy for finalizing, testing and popularizing solutions in the future environmental life-support technologies, as well as other technologies that improve living conditions in remote areas in the Arctic, such as medicine, biotechnology, clean agricultural technology, telecommunications, robotics, "the Internet of Things" and "smart home / village", new materials and construction technologies and others.

The station is also a vehicle for supporting joint research on climate change, ecology and environmental pollution, including that of the oceans.Functioning as a "living laboratory" IAS will provide a technological and economic foundation to scale up the newly developed solutions for widespread use.
