The world is moving quickly toward an electrified, zero-emissions, and carbon-neutral future. Although technology for passenger cars has come a long way, transportation and other market segments have been deemed “too difficult” to electrify until recent years. Thanks to hydrogen and fuel cell development, there is now a significant market opportunity to electrify many commercial applications. By combining batteries with hydrogen fuel cells, companies like Loop Energy are creating solutions that can make a huge positive impact in our path towards a zero-emissions future. We invite you to join Ben Nyland, President & CEO of Loop Energy, in a discussion on the world of hydrogen technology, the various market applications, and an exploration of their proprietary technology. Loop Energy is a hydrogen fuel cell developer and manufacturer that is experiencing rapid growth as it continues to expand worldwide, with headquarters in Burnaby, BC.
