The Hydrogen Council has welcomed 11 new members from Asia, North America and Europe.
3M, Bosch, China Energy, Great Wall Motor, JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy Corp., and Weichai have joined as steering members alongside Hexagon Composites, Marubeni, McPhy, Nel Hydrogen and Royal Vopak at the supporting level.
Since its launch in early 2017, the Hydrogen Council, a first-of-its-kind, CEO-led initiative, has doubled in size.
The council – comprising global energy, transport and industry companies – strives to accelerate investment in the development and commercialization of the hydrogen and fuel cell sectors, as well as encourage key stakeholders to increase their backing of hydrogen as part of the future energy mix with appropriate policies and supporting schemes.
“We view hydrogen as a key energy carrier in the development of decarbonized energy systems,” comments Jack Schimenti, executive vice president of Hexagon Composites. “Being part of the Hydrogen Council enables us to work closely with the leading industry players to further enhance hydrogen globally. Our membership truly demonstrates our strong commitment to accelerating the market for hydrogen storage, distribution and fuel systems solutions.”
