At its annual meeting earlier this year, the New Energy World Industry Grouping (NEW-IG) elected its new executive board. The new members, who will initially serve for two years, are Thomas Melczer and Andreas Frömmel. Melczer, Director of Business Development at Proton Motor Fuel Cell, is now responsible for the Membership/JU Commitment, while Frömmel, Vice President of Commercial and Business Development at FuelCell Energy Solutions, has become responsible for Energy Transition Solutions. Gaëlle Hotellier, Director of Hydrogen Solutions at Siemens, was elected to serve another term as the Head of the Energy department.
The NEW-IG currently counts 85 companies and members from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), which supports research, technical development and demonstration projects for fuel cell and hydrogen technologies in Europe.
