Plug Power CEO and CSO Participate in the 4th annual Hydrogen Council Virtual CEO Event – January 18-19, 2021

January 18, 2021

There are dynamic developments underway in the hydrogen sector. Plug Power’s CEO, Andy Marsh, and CSO, Sanjay Shrestha will join the virtual Hydrogen Council CEO Event for a two day discussion of the key challenges and opportunities for the industry ahead. 

Launched by thirteen founding members in 2017, the Hydrogen Council now counts 109 companies from 20+ countries around the world, bringing together an even wider range of sectors along the entire hydrogen value chain. This unique, members-only event will feature insightful discussions, briefings on new, real industry data-based reports as well as ample chances to set up individual B2B meetings and connect with senior industry peers. 

Group discussions will fill the two day agenda – address topics including hydrogen decarbonization pathways, hydrogen investment, deployment and cost competitiveness at length. Leveraging global tailwinds towards the industry will result in massive scale-up of the hydrogen industry in public support and regulatory framework. 

Most specifically, Plug Power is engaged in  a discussion regarding “hydrogen advocacy in the US” alongside council members including Ballard Power, First Element Fuel, Linde, W L Gore and others exploring opportunities to advance the industry’s agenda with the incoming US administration.

A strong global hydrogen economy can create 30 million jobs by 2025. The hydrogen industry is encouraged to see support for green hydrogen well positioned in President-elect Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ policy agenda. Ensuring access to a supply of cost-effective green hydrogen power in the US will help us decarbonize the economy and make the US a world leader in combating climate change.
