TORONTO — On Apr. 11, Progressus Clean Technologies announced the formation of a new advisory board to accelerate technology development and commercialization of their market responsive hydrogen products.
Pinakin Patel has been appointed to the role of chairman of the advisory board. Mr. Patel is a hydrogen and fuel cell executive with a background in raising money for cleantech companies. In addition to his experience, he has contributed to more than 30 patents. Mr. Patel was also recently elected as a board of director on the California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC), a national level organization consisting of over 140 companies engaged in every aspect of the hydrogen supply chain worldwide as well as advocating for the commercialization of low-carbon and green hydrogen technologies.
“Pinakin’s network in the hydrogen and fuel cell space along with his expertise and direct experience with Progressus technology is second to none,” said Channce Fuller, President and CEO of Progressus. “His appointment to chair the advisory board for Progressus is a catalyzing opportunity for us to bring more and more experience to the venture.”
Mr. Patel has a resume of having raised more than $500 million in R&D funding for advanced technology, manufacturing and application development projects in USA, Canada, Japan, Europe and Asia. His experience is in-depth spanning every type of fuel cell and renewable power using a variety of sources including waste-derived biogas, solar, wind and others. Mr. Patel has also supported dozens of venture stage companies in the alternative energy space by arranging supply chain coordination, strategic alliances and funding.
As the company continues to progress technology development and commercialization, Mr. Patel’s first initiative will be to fill out the remainder of the advisory board with experts to ensure a successful product launch and market penetration.
The company will continue to keep the market updated on the achievement of additional goals and milestones.
