“We consider hydrogen and fuel cell technology an enabler of the energy transition,” said Rolf Huber, Founder of H2 Energy. “It buffers excess electricity production, and stores and distributes energy that has been produced by renewables.”

The agreement is subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions.

“At Phillips 66, we believe that expanding access to hydrogen is critical to achieving a lower-carbon future,” said Brian Mandell, Phillips 66 Executive Vice President, Marketing and Commercial. “We’re excited to join forces with H2 Energy, which has demonstrated success in developing technology assets across the hydrogen value chain.”
