Haval has become the first Chinese automotive manufacturer to join the Hydrogen Council.
Launched at the World Economic Forum in 2017, the Hydrogen Council is a global CEO initiative to foster the role of hydrogen technologies in the global energy transition.
Dr Woong-chul Yang is the Co-Chair of the Hydrogen Council and Vice Chairman of Hyundai, he tells us it is great to see the powerful Chinese brand get aboard.
“We are delighted to welcome such impressive growth and the strong CEO-level commitment to hydrogen this demonstrates.
This is corporate leadership at scale – multinationals are walking the talk when it comes to building better solutions to address the Paris Agreement climate goals and hydrogen has become an integral part of our strategies.
“With increasing interest from policy makers and investors around the globe, the next five to ten years could see a decisive shift in deployment of hydrogen technologies.
“Our scenarios suggest that hydrogen technologies could contribute to meeting 18% of the world’s final energy demands, avoiding 6 billion tonnes of CO2 emissions, creating a market with revenues of 2.5 trillion dollars each year and providing 30 million jobs by mid-century.”
