The strong growth of the Hydrogen Industry Cluster is continuing.
In October, we announced that we had passed the 100-member threshold. In the meantime, we have welcomed another 16 innovative companies to the cluster. So we count 120 members, a doubling compared to the previous year.
The fact that hydrogen is an essential part of the energy transition is becoming a reality for more and more companies. We are happy to help them on their journey to find out what hydrogen can mean for them.
