ITM Power plc the energy storage and clean fuel company yesterday hosted a visit from HRH The Duke of York. His Royal Highness met with ITM Chairman, Prof. Roger Putnam and CEO Dr. Graham Cooley before taking a tour of the production facility and hydrogen refuelling station.

As part of the visit, The Duke of York inspected ITM Power’s range of hydrogen generation equipment for energy storage and clean fuel production. Of particular interest was the Company’s high efficiency HBox-Solar product that efficiently stores intermittent renewable energy as hydrogen and is aimed at off-grid power back-up applications.

His Royal Highness commented; “I am immensely proud of the innovation and technology that emanates from the UK and it is a privilege to help companies like ITM Power promote their technology around the world. Clean energy and hydrogen in particular will be high growth markets in the years to come and the UK must be in a position to exploit its technology globally. This is an area of industry that I feel very strongly about and it is an area that will present the UK with many opportunities.”

ITM Power CEO commented; “ITM Power’s global profile is developing all the time and having such a well known champion promoting the Company around the world will help to accelerate our global footprint. I was impressed with The Duke’s knowledge of the cleantech sector, he clearly understands the range of technology .”
