We are now realizing that hydrogen is an essential component of sustainable mobility. And we are delighted to be able to support Symbio in its future growth and development. Laurent Noual - Michelin

Symbio FCell makes hydrogen powered vehicles based on electric vehicle technology to which we add a kit that boosts the range. What's unique is that we use cars that are already produced on an industrial scale. Fabio Ferrari - Symbio FCell

We had a demonstration of the fact that a well-structured sector involving hydrogen for mobility and industrial purposes is both technically and financially feasible as well as economically balanced. Etienne Blanc - Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region

The technologies are there, the market is there, so it's up to us to best meet the expectations of our clients. Stéphane Arnoux – ENGIE Cofely

We're seeing energy companies and hydrogen companies getting together with players in mobility. I think it underlines the link beetween energy and transportation which underlies the importance of hydrogen. I hope it leads to other collaborative efforts like this.
