Whilst that might appear an obvious statement to many, if any company is well positioned to make such observations it is Ballard. A leading global designer and manufacturer of zero-emission fuel cell engines for heavy-duty mobility, Ballard has been the gold standard for fuel cell technology leadership and performance for many years and was also one of the first members of the Hydrogen Council, no less.
