Andrew Hinkly attended the International Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle Congress 2018 in Rugao, China, and chaired the Market and Capital Investment session co-organised by Anglo American and the China Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).
The session gathered innovative start-ups, mid-sized companies and investors and explored the solutions and partnerships required to accelerate the adoption of a hydrogen infrastructure in China.
Recalling the ambitious target set by the SAE for the penetration of 1 million fuel cell electric vehicles in China by 2030, Andrew Hinkly recognised that “what happens in China influences the rest of the world”. He also gave insights on investing in hHydrogen technologies, targeting the constraints which have the potential to unlock the whole hydrogen value chain. He highlighted that adopting this approach in the Chinese ecosystem would have a magnifying effect and recognised the opportunity for an investment firm such as AP Ventures, the venture capital fund he launched in July 2018.
