Hydrogen’s role in mobility and how it can be secured will be in focus during a H2 View webinar, sponsored by FORVIA, on Friday (November 10).
The clean mobility needs of the future, value chain make-up and how the landscape is evolving will all be up for discussion during the free-to-attend mobility special webinar, with the aim of determining how the mobility market of the future can be inspired.
H2 View hosts, Rob Cockerill and Thomas Dee, will be joined by FORVIA and its partners to explore hydrogen mobility challenges, technology and key supply chain components.
Yves Dumoulin, Senior Vice-President, FORVIA Hydrogen Solutions, will showcase the company’s role and how it plans to be a hydrogen leader by 2030 before diving into the challenges for hydrogen mobility such as infrastructure, cost and time to market.
On Tuesday (November 7) FORVIA announced it would supply its Type IV hydrogen tanks to a ‘major’ automotive OEM for use in medium-duty commercial trucks in North America.
Mehdi Ferhan, Chief Operating Officer of Plug Power-Renault joint venture Hyvia, will also join the webinar to offer insight on how hydrogen can enable sustainable mobility and its collaboration with FORVIA.
Hydrogen internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles continue to attract attention and will also feature in the discussion, with Rémi Dietrich, Chief Technology Officer of GCK, which in June (2023) unveiled the Foenix H2 ICE-powered race car at the 100th anniversary of the Le Mans 24 Hours.
With the potential scale up of hydrogen transportation, materials such as carbon fibre – used for storage tanks – must also grow. Rémi Daudin of MATERTI’ACT will discuss the affordable, convenient and sustainable production of carbon fibre.
The free to attend webinar will start at 14:30 GMT on November 10, and offer a chance for viewers to ask their own questions.

Springing into life at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020, the Rochester, New York-headquartered hydrogen fuel cell and truck firm quickly grabbed headlines, basing its hydrogen-powered drives on technology developed by Singapore’s Horizon Fuel Cell Group.
