For almost forty years, as an entrepreneur and executive, my focus has been on exploring how business can best serve the common good. I think that business is the most important and most powerful institution on the planet. And we should use business to solve humanity’s largest challenges.
Of all the challenges I have worked on during the past four decades, the threat that climate change poses to human survival is the biggest. We can only mitigate the effects of climate change when we rapidly discard fossil fuels as the base of our energy infrastructure.
I believe that sustainable produced—green—hydrogen is the best, and likely, only solution we can implement to replace fossil fuels and to reverse global warming. Only hydrogen can produce and store electricity as well as power heavy industry and transportation.
However, green hydrogen faces a challenge: It can be produced at competitive prices where solar, wind and other renewables are cheap. But most of these places are far away from where energy is needed.
I started H₂ Clipper to solve that problem. Our airships—in combination with our last mile ‘Pipe-within-a-Pipe’ distribution—can bring green hydrogen quickly and efficiently where we need it now. Therefore, H2 Clipper is an essential contribution to the biggest crisis of our times.
We can only succeed in reversing global warming when humanity is willing and able to work together. H2 Clipper wants to be part of that collaborative effort. I hope you will join me in that effort.
