Canada is a well-established global leader for innovative hydrogen solutions. This is due to contributions from companies such as Ballard Power (leading global fuel cell company), Hydrogenics (acquired by Cummins and Air Liquide) and Stuart Energy (merged with Hydrogenics).
Our team members Dr. Jim Hinatsu and Dr. Michael Stemp led R&D initiatives at Stuart Energy prior to co-founding Next Hydrogen in 2008. The company’s other co-founders included successful renewable energy entrepreneurs. The efforts of Dr. Hinatsu and Dr. Stemp were supported by Matthew Fairlie who previously served as CTO of Stuart Energy, Vice Chair of National Hydrogen Association in Washington and Chair of Canadian Hydrogen Business Council.
