Taras Wankewycz has been a deep-tech entrepreneur in Asia for the past 20 years, with a prime focus on hydrogen fuel cell commercialization. His journey evolved from miniature-scale didactic systems for schools to full-scale hydrogen electric heavy-duty vehicles, and now hydrogen electric systems for decarbonized air mobility. Taras’ first company Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies is currently the only profitable PEM fuel cell company in the world. One of Horizon’s recent carve-outs is Hyzon Motors, now valued at over $2.7 Billion and listing on NASDAQ. While Hyzon Motors’ mission is to decarbonize commercial vehicle fleets, in 2015 he formed H3 Dynamics as a continuation of Horizon’s air mobility lab named HES Energy Systems.
