Despite the nations start to 2021 ending up as a false start as the UK went into lockdown, our 2021 started strongly as we were joined by former CEO of Siemens UK, Juergen Maier CBE, as our Commercial Partner Custodian Director in January. As the year began to get traction spring was a very busy time for us as we worked hard building both cars and business relationships and we developed a strategic partnership with Siemens. We launched the Circular Revolution and signed a collaborative agreement with Oil 4 Wales to work towards hydrogen appearing on forecourts. We then hosted our Royal Visitor in July, HRH the Prince of Wales. He took a spin in the Rasa and had a tour of our factory in Llandrindod Wells. A major highlight in our year! After a rapid start, we caught our breath over the summer as the Development Bank of Wales became a shareholder in Riversimple and we announced our partnership with DHL. We also completed our Seedrs funding round raising well over our initial target. After a slightly more relaxed August, we were back to it in September where we attended the Global Offshore Wind Conference as part of the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, before joining Planetmark on their COP26 tour in Abergavenny. We were then featured on the Earthshot Prize as our friends at Enapter were awarded for their work developing modular electrolysers. 2021 drew to a close with a bang as we headed to London and Glasgow for #cop26. Hydrogen was on the tip of everyone’s tongue as the world realised that hydrogen it was the future. We caught up with Enapter and the Rasa proved a smash hit with world leaders and industry experts.
We would like to take this moment to say thank you all for your support so far, we cannot wait to see what 2022 holds. One this is for sure though, there will be #H2in2022
