Partnership aims to expand use of hydrogen and fuel cells

Plug Power and ENGIE have joined forces in a bid to accelerate the adoption of hydrogen and fuel cell systems.

Under the agreement, the partners will identify mutually beneficial markets and customers. Plug Power’s fuel cell technology will be combined with ENGIE’s hydrogen infrastructure, renewable energy and service programs, enabling the pair to deliver cost-effective hydrogen energy solutions to customers in more than 50 countries. The agreement is focused on end-uses such as distribution centres, manufacturing facilities and logistic equipment and vehicles for both ports and airports.

Plug Power CEO, Andy Marsh, said: “Given the global commitments to meet the targets of the Paris Accord, we and ENGIE believe there’s a tremendous opportunity for expansion of hydrogen and fuel cells to provide a clean, efficient energy alternative to fossil fuels.”
