This interview with Claire Behar, Chief Commercial Officer at Hy Stor Energy, is part of H2 View’s series celebrating women in hydrogen, as part of International Women’s Day.
Claire, thanks for giving H2 View your time. We’re celebrating the women working in hydrogen this International Women’s Day. So, what first sparked your interest in hydrogen and working in this industry?
Claire Behar (CB): Thanks for including me in this series! My interest in hydrogen goes back to my passion for being outside in nature. I’ve always enjoyed the greater outdoors – camping, hiking, biking. Protecting the environment is also part of that passion. At university, I studied geology engineering which turned into a job in the energy sector – analysing global natural gas for energy commodities trading.
I quickly realised how critically important energy reliability is for everyone and how a clean energy transition was imminent in a world needing better protection. Moving from natural gas to hydrogen was a natural career progression within the energy sector, a next step towards helping facilitate the clean energy transition as the hydrogen industry scales up, and a way to help make our planet a clean, more liveable place for all – something I really care about!
