Following an influx of new members, the Hydrogen Council has seen its influence grow around the world. In mid-January, the association said several global players, including Chevron, ElringKlinger, Mann+Hummel, McDermott and Nikola Motor, had joined the council in supporting roles. Its steering committee had also grown by five new members, namely CNH Industrial, Michelin, SaudiAramco, Schaeffler and Siemens. And another five, all of which operate in the finance sector, have formed an investor group. The organization’s membership total now stands at 81.
Benoît Potier, co-chair of the Hydrogen Council, which was founded by 13 organizations in 2017, said that the association was “very pleased to see continued interest from world-renowned companies,” businesses that “recognize the massive potential of hydrogen and share our mission of scaling up hydrogen solutions.” Co-chair Eui-sun Chung added: ”We believe in the power of hydrogen and the role it can play in our existing energy system as well as a new, cleaner one.“
