This is the third time we have attended the Hyvolution trade show, and we have really seen how the ecosystem has evolved. Last year, we were already very surprised at how many more professionals were there. This year, this is even more the case. We make the most of the event to do business, network and meet the stakeholders with whom we have projects again. It's really the presence of all the ecosystem's stakeholders that makes Hyvolution an enriching experience.
Cécilia FOUVRY-RENZI, Director of Hydrogen Energy activities for South-West Europe at Air Liquide
I can already confirm that Engie will attend the next Hyvolution trade show in February 2023 and maybe even the Hyvolution event in Chile. It is important for us to attend, as it is an informal event after years during which we saw less of one another, and it is important to meet up with and see our stakeholders.
Franck LE BARON, Vice-Chairman of Engie Hydrogen
This is the second time I am attending the Hyvolution trade show and we have seen that the number of exhibitors and visitors has increased. Nowadays we clearly see that this event is the benchmark, allowing us to talk about our projects, and also to meet the ecosystem's stakeholders and form new partnerships.
Mansur ZHAKUPOV, Vice-Chairman of Hydrogen at TotalEnergies
COne of our major technological challenges will be to locally source products making up our hydrogen-powered vehicles. We will talk about the components of fuel cells, components of the hydrogen storage system and electronic components. And to that end we expect proposals from suppliers attending the Hyvolution trade show.
Mehdi FEHRAN, Director of Operations at HYVIA
It's extremely important that all the sector's players get together to create carbon-free hydrogen ecosystems that are economically viable. This is what we see at the trade show. All the stakeholders talk to one another to develop joint ventures and partnerships, which is essential for structuring the ecosystems, but also for mutualizing uses and connecting with hydrogen offerors.
