/PRNewswire/ --
McPhy Energy S.A, a French based leading supplier of solid state hydrogen
storage today announces the appointment of Roland Kaeppner as CEO for
McPhy Energy Deutschland GmbH, effective
August 1
st
.
Roland Kaeppner joins McPhy from his position as Vice President and Head of
Siemens Hydrogen Solutions. He has deep roots in the electrochemical and
industry infrastructure business and held various leadership functions within the
Siemens Industry Sector. He will lead and build the new operations as part of
McPhy's global expansion strategy.
"
Germany
will play an essential role for building a future hydrogen economy.
Our ambitious goals for the energy transition, hence expanding renewable
energy generation can only be realized if economic energy storage
technologies are implemented. In parallel, global players in the automotive, gas
and oil industry are pushing fuel cell powered mobility with a strong focus on
the German market. Hydrogen is a unique energy carrier which will leverage
synergies between both demands and create new business opportunities where
in some areas traditional industry, utility and mobility markets will merge. I find
in McPhy solutions the reliable, safe and cost efficient hydrogen storage
technology, which will play a key role to drive the future hydrogen value chain",
says Roland Kaeppner.
McPhy Energy, a French based technology company, is developing and
manufacturing commercial systems to store hydrogen based on innovative
metal hydride technology and has recently signed contracts in
France
, the UK,
Italy
and
Japan
to demonstrate its technology leadership.
"We do believe that
Germany
will be a pioneer for a future hydrogen
infrastructure. We are happy to have Roland Kaeppner on board with us, an
internationally experienced manager, with an excellent track record and know-
how of the energy and hydrogen market. He will be key to execute our
strategy, to proactively build the German market and also build strategic
partnerships", says Pascal Mauberger, President and CEO of McPhy Energy S.A.
