Following the company’s success with major sustainability projects across New Zealand, the electrotechnology company, McKay, announced their recent membership with the New Zealand Hydrogen Association. The membership strengthens McKay’s existing commitment to the development of sustainable solutions and highlights the company’s dedication to a low carbon energy future.

“McKay strives to utilise our position as one of the fastest growing technology companies in the country to make legitimate inroads into the sustainable future for New Zealand. Becoming a member of the New Zealand Hydrogen Association highlights our commitment to research and development in the hydrogen space as we begin the transition to a low emissions economy,” says Lindsay Faithfull, Managing Director of McKay Group.

McKay have already had success with their sustainability projects and are currently working with governments, likeminded companies and key individuals to develop sustainable solutions both for their clients and within the McKay Group. Being the lead provider of EV charging points across New Zealand, McKay also operate their own electric vehicle fleet and are working towards their own full green policy by 2030.

The electrotechnology provider is currently delivering the Southern Hemisphere’s first fully electric ferry, which has seen them develop cutting-edge electric propulsion technology which has never before implemented on New Zealand shores. McKay are keen to drive forwards with a similar innovative approach to hydrogen technologies and look forward to what the future may bring in the energy arena.

McKay’s membership with New Zealand’s Hydrogen Association means they will be at the forefront of advancing the development of low emission hydrogen production and use opportunities to advance New Zealand’s transition to a low emissions economy.
