The Hydrogen Council, founded at last year’s summit in Davos, now counts another 11 members, among them Bosch, Great Wall Motor or 3m. They join the likes of ABB, BMW or Shell who all want to foster transport fuelled by hydrogen.
The Hydrogen Council exists since January 2017 when the founding members expressed their will to cooperate to advance fuel cell vehicles and H2 infrastructure. Accordingly, the 13 initial members include Air Liquide, Alstom, Anglo American, BMW, Daimler, ENGIE, Honda, Hyundai, Kawasaki, Linde, Shell, Total and Toyota. ABB came on board last autumn.
The circle has now been widened by 3M, Bosch, China Energy, Great Wall Motor, JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy Corporation, Weichai, Hexagon Composites, Marubeni, McPhy, Nel Hydrogen und Royal Vopak thus stretching the Council’s outreach further towards the East and globally overall.
The Hydrogen Council this year expects members to “join forces to drive change, accelerating the pace on a global scale,” reads the press release. Concrete measures have not been published.
