The first Hydrogen Council Investor Day was held on September 18 during Climate Week NYC. The goal of this event, attended by industrial leaders and key financial and political players, was to discuss the contribution of hydrogen in the future energy mix and its key role in the transition to sustainable and carbon-free energies. It was also an opportunity to raise awareness among the financial community on the investment opportunities presented by the development of hydrogen technologies for the future, in industry, automotive and energy sectors, serving the energy transition.
During this event, the Hydrogen Council announced the arrival of three new North American companies: General Motors is joining the Steering Committee, now composed of 18 global companies; Hydrogenics and Ballard are also joining the Council as Supporting members. Air Liquide is delighted of these three new membership to make the voice of the hydrogen heard.
The event which was attended by more than 160 participants, took place in the presence of Benoît Potier, CEO of Air Liquide and Co-Chair of the Hydrogen Council.
The next meeting of the 27 CEOs of the Hydrogen Council will take place during the Climate Change Conference (COP 23) in Bonn, Germany, in November 2017.
