To promote the deployment of hydrogen mobility worldwide, Hyzon Motors Inc. today (22nd April) has launched the Hyzon Zero Carbon Alliance, composed of leading companies from various sectors.
The aim is to share expertise, resources, and capability to advance knowledge and innovation and identify projects that can help transition to hydrogen fuel cell commercial vehicles. The members will work for the development of hydrogen mobility supply chains to decarbonise the commercial transport sector.
In addition to Hyzon, the alliance comprised of:
- Ark Energy (a subsidiary of Korea Zinc)
- AXA (insurance- France)
- Bank of America (bank, USA)
- Hiringa Energy (a developer of green hydrogen projects, New Zealand)
- Modern Group (a diversified industrial company- Saudi Arabia)
- NEOM (a region in northwest Saudi Arabia- Saudi Arabia)
- Raven SR ( biomass technology- USA)
- ReCarbon (carbon emissions utilisation technology- USA)
- Total (oil and gas- France)
The alliance will play a key role in balancing the supply and demand of commercial vehicles in the hydrogen ecosystem, given its direct access to global fleet operators.
George Gu, Chairman and Co-Founder of Hyzon Motors, said, “Through the Hyzon Zero Carbon Alliance, we will work with partners to expand the deployment of zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell-powered heavy vehicles globally and continue leading the hydrogen transition.
Daniel Kim, Chief Executive Officer, Ark Energy Corporation commented “As hydrogen moves from being a future fuel to an everyday fuel, we plan to leverage our experience on SunHQ, to roll out additional hydrogen hubs across Queensland and become a major domestic hydrogen producer ahead of our ultimate goal of becoming a green hydrogen exporter.”
Collaboration and alliances are critical in unlocking the potential of hydrogen to accelerate the transition away from fossil fuel-powered transport, said Andrew Clennett, CEO at Hiringa Energy.
The hydrogen economy in Saudi Arabia is growing exponentially with the recent announcement from the Ministry of Energy stating the Kingdom’s ambition to become the world’s largest supplier of hydrogen, said Abdulaziz F. AI Hamwah, Chief Executive Officer at Modern Group.
On Monday, Hyzon also announced the start of production of 15 zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell vehicles for delivery to the Municipality of Groningen, the Netherlands. The order comprised of 10 zero-emission medium and heavy-duty municipality trucks, including water, refuse, hook-lift crane and delivery trucks, and five zero-emission vans, all to be delivered by the end of this year.
