I look forward to working alongside Cummins as new Co-chair to foster dialogue and collaboration in order to accelerate the development of a low carbon economy.”
Tom Linebarger, Chairman and CEO of Cummins and new Co-chair of the Hydrogen Council, added, “It’s encouraging to see major economies around the world advance clean energy technologies, and I’m especially proud that the US is pushing forward with new policy initiatives to support the scale-up of hydrogen.
