Vancouver, BC—The Board of Directors of the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association is pleased to announce the election of a new Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Board at its regular meeting on May 11, 2016.

Elected to the position of Chairman is Daryl Wilson, President and CEO of Hydrogenics, a leading Canadian developer and provider of hydrogen infrastructure and fuel cell solutions.  With 25 years of experience in technology and industrial management, Mr. Wilson held senior leadership positions with Royal Group Technologies, ZENON Environmental, TOYOTA and Dofasco before joining Hydrogenics in 2006.

Elected to the position of Vice-Chairman is Ross Bailey, President of Greenlight Innovation, a Canadian manufacturer of fuel cell testing stations, battery test systems, and fuel cell dispensers.  Mr. Bailey has a wealth of experience in technology and corporate leadership with a strong background in sales, marketing, product development, M&A and international business.

Canada is a global leader in fuel cell and hydrogen technology, and Canadian companies are experiencing a record year, with major bus and train fuel cell set sales to China, the United States and Europe, as well as strong sales of new Power to Gas technology, which involve utilizing surplus, off-peak wind and solar power and storing the energy as hydrogen for use when power demand is peaking.

Canada has roughly 2,000 high-income, clean technology jobs in the H2 sector, and our companies generate approximately $200 million in annual revenue, with exports contributing a significant portion.
