“Since June 2021, the group of ProChile offices in the United States has worked on the definition of the relevant areas in the market, aligned with the national H2V strategy of both the Ministry and ProChile's promotion plan and that they have to do with with management and commercial intelligence, highlighting the survey of North American companies associated with investment in renewable energy projects, as well as the identification of relevant leads in the financial industry with an interest in H2V developments and clean energy in general, projects and local actors in storage and logistics, and possible future H2V off-takers ”, highlighted the General Director of ProChile, Jorge O'Ryan.

And he added: "This second semester the ProChile network in the United States decided to initiate a relationship with the local financial industry through this virtual seminar that has been led by Minister Juan Carlos Jobet, who leads this country project, with the aim of presenting the opportunities offered by the Chilean green hydrogen industry to high profile US investors ”.
