The Sustainable Energy Council World Hydrogen series of events has enlisted a team of leaders from the global hydrogen sector to give focus to the World Hydrogen Event Series and ensure key industry challenges and opportunities are addressed.

Star Scientific Global Group Chairman, Mr Andrew Horvath has become one of the founding members of the SEC World Hydrogen Advisory board, which brings together governments and companies across the entire supply chain to enhance global partnerships and ensure hydrogen continues to play a role in the energy transition.

“Star Scientific is honoured to be invited to join this prestigious board. It is welcome acknowledgement of our Hydrogen Energy Release Optimiser, or HERO®, which companies and governments around the world are recognising as the missing link in the demand case for hydrogen deployment, without combustion, for industrial heating and energy purposes. We are also proud to be asked to bring the Australasian perspective to the Sustainable Energy Council’s deliberations on hydrogen,” said Mr Horvath.

Other founding members of the Advisory Board include:

  • Allard Castelein, President & CEO, Port of Rotterdam Authority
  • Paul Bogers, Vice President – Hydrogen, Royal Dutch Shell
  • Jorgo Chatzimarkakis, Secretary General, Hydrogen Europe
  • Max Correa Achurra, Head of the Fuels & New Energy Division, Ministry of Energy, Chile
  • Noé van Hulst, Chair at IPHE, Hydrogen Advisor at IEA & Gasunie
  • Horst H. Mahmoudi, CEO & Executive Chairman, Smartenergy
  • David Burns, VP Clean Energy, Linde

The involvement of the Advisory Board will enable participants to take relevant, informed decisions to help drive further collaboration, and accelerate the hydrogen industry roll-out world-wide.
