Today's HyStar sharing her thoughts about the hydrogen industry and upcoming festivities is Production Director Bente Traa!

What has been the highlight of your year in 2022?

 On the personal side we finally managed to sail from Norway to Denmark with our family. After planning and scheduling it for years, but never getting further than to the Swedish boarder before getting sea-sick, it was a highlight to finally get to Denmark. On the professional side the highlight would be setting up our new Innovation Centre for R&D and production together with our wonderful team. Can’t wait to get started in 2023! 

What are you hoping to get for Christmas?

My children have added PlayStation controller to my list, so I will go for that. 

What’s in store for the hydrogen industry over the next few years?

Scaling and leveraging to a higher maturity level is needed across the whole hydrogen industry.  

Any New Year’s resolutions you’ll be making that you could tell us about?

Not really a new years resolution fan, but I have had as a goal to learn how to do handstand walk for quite a few years now. Maybe this will be the year. 

What are you most looking forward to in 2023?

Producing our first commercial PEM electrolyser stacks and setting them into successful operation at customer sites!
