The team at PowerTap has realized the vision of a clean fuel source with the participation of yet another former Shell Oil company executive, Mr. David Bray.

“The UAE has positioned itself as a champion of sustainability. The underpinning of the hydrogen ecosystem will be on display not only at Expo 2020 but across Dubai and the UAE over the next six months,” said Mr. Raghu Kilambi, CEO of PowerTap Hydrogen Capital Corp. 

Mr. Sagar Mirchandani, Partner of Viridian Hydrogen, UAE is looking forward to displaying the PowerTap system to the expected 25 million visitors to the first Expo to take place in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia Region. Mr. Mirchandani highlights “that the teams at Viridian and PowerTap, in keeping with the theme of the Expo of Mobility, Sustainability and Opportunity, will have the good-fortune to show not just the region but the world that hydrogen fueling is the fuel source that will transform our world economies into a renewable, sustainable future.”

Additionally, Viridian is pleased to announce that it has established a Hydrogen Advisory Council to continue to help steward the transition to sustainable energy production. The select members being added to this group will enable Viridian and PowerTap to transition the UAE into a global leader in hydrogen production, distribution, utilization, and carbon capture technology.  

Mr. Ismail Al Zarooni has agreed to join the Hydrogen Advisory Council. Mr. Zarooni is an accomplished civil engineer passionate about renewable energy and decarbonization. Ismail has experience in delivering numerous end-to-end multi-billion-dollar projects across Dubai, these projects range from airports to over 80+ gold certified LEED Expo pavilions.

Being a key member of Expo 2020 site delivery team, he has successfully delivered various bespoke award winning CEEQUAL and LEED certified projects ranging from a unique observation tower to complex steel shade structures. Ismail has extensive experience in managing various stakeholders ranging from governmental authorities, contractors, multi-national investment firms and end users. With comprehensive knowledge of current research and trends in the field of renewable energy and sustainability, Ismail has always exemplified this at the heart of all his projects.

Mr. Zarooni is “eager to be a part of the Hydrogen Advisory Council to further develop the hydrogen ecosystem within the UAE and contribute to the UAE’s vision of enhancing the country’s competitiveness in sustainability and to preserve its environment for future generations.”  

MOVE & Viridian are honored to continue to help build on the UAE’s Founding Father the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s visionary leadership to establish the pillars of success for the Arab Emirates.
