Global union for hydrogen at the Davos summit

Hydrogen

At the annual meeting of the global economic forum in Davos, Air Liquide joined forces with 12 global industrial giants to promote hydrogen through a "Hydrogen Council".

This is the first global initiative of its kind, which aims to show that hydrogen is a key solution for the energy transition. This council, currently chaired jointly by Air Liquide and Toyota, brought together 13 company CEOs from energy, transportation, and industry, determined to contribute to limiting global warming to 2°C, as defined by the 2015 Paris climate agreements.

Its mission is to make proposals to public and private stakeholders of the transition to move towards a low-carbon society. A report* commissioned by the "Hydrogen Council" already shows the potential of hydrogen in the energy transition and suggests action that the authorities could take to support the development of hydrogen.

Air Liquide is accelerating the creation of a network of hydrogen stations for the general public. The Group very recently inaugurated a station in Offenbach am Main, Germany as part of the Clean Energy Partnership; one in California, USA; and two others in Japan. Many more stations are due to open in 2017.

Make proposals to public and private stakeholders of the transition to move towards a low-carbon society.
