Today's HyStar sharing his thoughts about the hydrogen industry and upcoming festivities is Applications Engineer Mahmoud El Ahwal!

What has been the highlight of your year in 2022?

This is a tricky one, but the highlight of my year would definitely be between graduating from my master’s degree at UCL and moving to Norway for my first job! 

What are you hoping to get for Christmas?

This summer, I had my telescope set up in the dark and my dog ran straight into it and the lens was shattered to pieces.. so I’d love some equipment replacements/upgrades for it.  

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

Increases in electrolyser manufacturing, installations and hydrogen production rates. More projects going live, and a clearer picture of the role hydrogen can play in so many different parts of our lives. 

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

Making hiking a regular activity and exploring more parts of Norway. I plan to visit Lofoten at some point during the year. 

What are you most looking forward to in 2023?

I am looking forward to seeing our HyPilot project operational!
