The European Hydrogen Association has reorganised itself. In June 2021, Hydrogen Europe announced that Jon André Løkke would henceforth be the Chairman of the Supervisory Board. Løkke succeeds Valerie Bouillon-Delporte, who had held the post since 2017.

Løkke, CEO of Nel Hydrogen since the end of 2015, said: “The time for hydrogen is now. It is of utmost importance to accelerate development, scale up and reduce costs. Good cooperation is essential to achieve this. I hope that I can contribute with my experience and background to support the vision of Hydrogen Europe, as well as the team and the rest of the Executive Board.”
Together with Løkke, five other members were elected to the Supervisory Board: Glenn Llewellyn, Airbus; Gerrit Marx, CNH; Melissa Verykios, CEO Helbio; Gunnar Groebler, Salzgitter; Christelle Werquin, France Hydrogène.
Jorgo Chatzimarkakis, former Secretary General and new CEO of Hydrogen Europe, explained: “Thanks to the leadership of Ms Bouillon-Delporte, the association is now on the right track to underpin the role of hydrogen as the second pillar of the energy turnaround. I welcome Mr Løkke and Mr Schutte [a member of the Supervisory Board since 2019; editor’s note], who will jointly lead the association and the board members to realise our vision of driving global carbon neutrality by accelerating the European hydrogen industry.”
