Fuel cell development firm EH Group announces innovation lab in India

Mardit Matian, Founder and Director of EH Group

EH Group is expanding its footprint by establishing an Innovation Lab in India, based at the IITM Research Park. Recently established EH Group Systems Pvt Ltd, is aimed at accelerating the development of fuel cell products, primarily focusing on control systems software.

What does the new facility mean for EH Group?

It is led by Anand Vasappanavara, Principal Control/Automation engineer, who was vital in designing FC system control development programs at major OEMs before joining EH Group in 2019. He is supported by a pre-established team that have already been collaborating with us, as well as several additional hires, notably from the strong academic talent pool at IIT Madras. The team is expected to grow rapidly to meet the nascent market opportunity.

“India is demonstrating its ambition to be a leader in hydrogen technologies, as witnessed by strong policy support and industrial investment announcements. Our goal is not only to support our fuel cell technology development but to better service our clients in the rapidly growing hydrogen sector in India,” commented Mardit Matian, Founder of EH Group.

“The time has never been better to invest in the hydrogen ecosystem in India. We are excited to benefit from its deep talent pool and to accelerate India’s journey towards decarbonisation and greater energy independence,” added Christopher Brandon, co-founder of EH Group.
