Since summer of 2012, Roland Käppner had been President of McPhy Energy Germany. At the beginning of 2014, he also became Vice President of McPhy Energy S.A. In July of last year, the French company announced that it would collaborate with British corporation GKN on the development of solid-hydrogen storage systems. This August, Käppner changed jobs and has since managed business development as Global Director Hydrogen at GKN Sinter Metals, a GKN subsidiary. Peter Oberparleiter, CEO of GKN Powder Metallurgy, said: “Clearly, hydrogen will be an important fuel of the future and its safe storage will be a key factor to its success.” Besides its business in the electrolysis industry, McPhy has been working on solid storage systems since 2008 and, for instance, installed one of its units at the airport Berlin-Schönefeld.
