Plug Power CEO, Andy Marsh, has received the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Industry Executive Award for 2019 at the Fuel Cell Seminar and Energy Exposition (FCS&EE).
The award recognises an executive who has led his or her organisation successfully and also played a decisive role in helping the growth of the fuel cell and hydrogen industry.
“Mr. Marsh surely fits this description,” said Morry Markowitz, President of the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association (FCHEA), who presented the award.
“He has guided Plug Power’s and market sector growth in materials handling and backup power and is now expanding into other industrial applications. Marsh also continues to serve as prominent voice for, and booster of, the industry.”
As well as Plug Power CEO, Mash currently serves as the Chairman of the FCHEA and is a member of the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technical Advisory Committee (HTAC) that helps guide the US Department of Energy’s fuel cell policies. Marsh also represents Plug Power at the global Hydrogen Council.
“I am greatly honoured to receive this award. I believe in Plug Power, our products and our people. Equally important, I believe in our industry and in the fuel cell future that we are all building together,” said Marsh.
“Plug Power has become a guiding light in our industry, showing the rest of the world how fuel cell technology can provide commercially and environmentally sound solutions to businesses around the world working to both improve their productivity and carbon footprint,” Markowitz concluded.
