CPH2 raises £2.5m and crowns Andy King as the new Chief Executive Officer

Wednesday 9th October 2019

The funding was arranged by West Hill Capital, whose Managing Partner, Robert Caie commented: “West Hill is delighted to be investing in CPH2 at such an exciting stage in the Company’s development. We partner with successful technology entrepreneurs and back what we believe are potentially hugely scalable businesses, that in turn can offer our investors market-leading returns. We look for an innovative product that can demonstrate a global demand and in the case of CPH2, they are operating in the hydrogen economy which is forecast to be worth $2.5 trillion by 2050”.

Clive Brook, Chairman of CPH2 added “We were very pleased with the fund-raising undertaken by West Hill, and given the early stage in our development, this is a very satisfactory outcome and created a springboard from which we can make substantial progress towards the full commercialisation of our unique, patented processes".

Brook continued “To drive this period of growth, CPH2 has appointed Andy King as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO)”.

With experience in the power, healthcare infrastructure, automotive and aviation sectors, Andy’s remit is to drive the production and sales of the low emissions and energy storage technologies. His skills in the fields of engineering, manufacturing, sales, and finance should ensure that the company stays on track to reach key goals.

Andy commented “My responsibility as CEO is to bring CPH2’s patented next generation of membrane-free electrolysers to the wider market for the benefit of all stakeholders; our shareholders and the inhabitants of a brighter future global environment. Adoption of this safe, simple and cost-effective method of producing hydrogen, using renewable power, will accelerate progress to become carbon-free by 2050”.

With more than 30 years’ experience in business and 20 years’ growing SME’s, Andy is already making a positive impact on the CPH2 team. His strong leadership and entrepreneurial flair coupled with a no-nonsense practical approach are creating renewed enthusiasm.   

CPH2 strengthens its technical team

Monday 9th September 2019

Warren Smith comes to CPH2 with several years’ experience in the subsea and umbilicals sector, having worked for Forum Energy Technology and IK-UK. His career highlights so far include being involved in development of a subsea rescue vehicle and being part of the team that manufactured a fully electric car.  He also undertook the AutoCAD module as part of his mechanical engineering degree which included Siemens NX and Solidworks software amongst others. Also studying Fluid Mechanics to give him a greater understanding of fluids under varying pressures and the effects of external variables.

Warren brings with him a strong leadership track record and enjoys a daily challenge, which is a good thing as he’ll be working alongside his big brother Gavin (Technical Engineer) developing our technology.

Going to the gym most days is Warren’s passion as he’s trying to look younger than his brother. ‘Most people think I’m older than Gavin because of my beard’ Warren said. His music and film preferences are very broad, watching anything from Lord of the Rings, Star Wars to animated films and horrors.

He’s not a big drinker, preferring a coffee but when he has a tipple it’s usually a strong cider. He likes most foods, but would much prefer a home cooked meal to eating out.

Welcome to the team, Warren.

We made it to the Shell New Energy Challenge Shortlist!

Thursday 8th August 2019

Clean Power Hydrogen (CPH2) Group Limited are excited to announce that they have been shortlisted in the Shell New Energy Challenge 2019.

Now in its 4th year, the New Energy Challenge is a joint initiative between Shell, Rockstart, YES!Delft and Get in the Ring. The competition is open to entrepreneurs from Europe and Israel and this year consists of two different tracks; one for start-ups and one for scale-up companies who can change the future of energy by developing new and innovative solutions.

CPH2's proposal is for local production of hydrogen using renewable energy produced using unique (non-membrane electrolyser) technology with cryogenic separation of mixed gases. This solution was entered in the scale-up category of which CPH2 is the only producer of hydrogen to be shortlisted.

The next stage is the interview sessions which take place in August. Finalists are notified in September and the winners of both categories will be selected in October. They will be presented with their prize of €100,000 towards proof of concept or designing a pilot project with Shell Ventures and rolling-out the technology with Shell’s Retail business.

CPH2’s Business Development Director Rodney Brook stated that “for such a young company we have put a lot of effort into developing our technology and being shortlisted is a huge achievement for the CPH2 team”.

The global focus in the energy business is to reduce CO2 emissions and to make best use of renewable energy sources for our future needs. There is a clear role for hydrogen in this endeavour and, working collaboratively alongside some of the best mentors and coaches provided by Shell, this initiative helps bring game-changing technologies to the marketplace quicker.
