Hydrenor, a specialist firm providing advisory services in clean energy investments and projects to companies in Europe has joined a prestigious industry body to strengthen its presence in the sector.
Aberdeen-based firm Hydrenor, is now a member of The Scottish Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (SHFCA), which promotes and develops Scottish expertise in fuel cells and hydrogen technologies.
Hydrenor was launched by Laurent Schirrer and Isabelle Vervoort, who established Oilgen in 2002 to specialise in high-tech reservoir studies to forecast and improve oil and gas production.
The company provides specialist services related to the development of new renewable, clean and sustainable energy, with respect to methane emission abatement, hydrogen use and other innovative technologies, ultimately creating a low carbon future.
SHFCA brings together Scotland’s specialised fuel cell companies, power generation companies, academic institutions, research and development bodies, energy consultants, Scottish Enterprise and local enterprise companies and councils with an interest in Hydrogen & Fuel Cells.
With around 100 members, the Association hosts a number of events throughout the year, with its 11th annual conference taking place in Aberdeen in October.
Laurent Schirrer, Hydrenor managing director, said: “We are delighted to join the SHFCA alongside a wealth of industry experts who share our vision for the future of hydrogen as an energy transition enabler. Hydrenor is already working on applications which will position our company as a leader in the integration of hydrogen within the Oil and Gas sector.
“The SHFCA works to be the main driver for the development of the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell industry in its broadest sense in Scotland; something Hydrenor strives to achieve.
“The Association engages with Scottish and UK government to create the right framework for the industry to develop, and works hard to help companies invest wisely, assisting the government achieve its goals.
‘Cleaner energy today’ is Hydrenor’s motto, and our association with the body will enable us to meet with fellow member companies to work towards the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and other atmospheric pollution.”
