Renewables – hydrogen
Hydrogen Europe, the hydrogen leading organisation, has appointed Jorgo Chatzimarkakis as its CEO.
Chatzimarkakis has to date been the Secretary General of Hydrogen Europe and will therefore continue guiding the association in its vision to propelling global carbon neutrality by accelerating European hydrogenindustry.
Jon André Løkke, President of Hydrogen Europe, said: “The HE Board of Directors is committed to accelerate the operations and the scope of our association and are now formalising the roles and responsibilities across the association including Jorgo as the CEO. This comes at a very timely moment as the recently published IPCC report urges us to implement and deliver even faster.”
Chatzimarkakis was Member of the European Parliament (2004 – 2014) inter alia in the ITRE Committee (Industry, Technology, Research and Energy) where he could contribute to lay the cornerstone for the first and the second Joint Undertaking on hydrogen and fuel cells.
