The international Hydrogen Council, a group of energy, transport and other industrial companies aiming to foster hydrogen as part of the energy transition, has welcomed 22 new member organisations, bringing the total to 81. Established now for three years, the fast growth of the Council, of which Benoit Potier, Chairman and CEO of Air Liquide, is co-chair, reflects both an awareness of the potential of hydrogen as a key component of a low-carbon future, and the business opportunities that potential promises. Amongst the new members are Saudi Aramco, Schaeffler Group, and Siemens (as steering members), Chevron, ElringKlinger, Fortescue Metals Group, Sinocat, Snam and Woodside Energy, and financial entities Antin Infrastructure Partners, BNP Paribas, Crédit Agricole, John Laing, and Société Générale. The range of membership shows just how broad the potential of the elemental gas is, and also that finance companies are recognising that there will be money to be made.
