Client Story

Waste-to-hydrogen partner selection through detailed management interviews


The client, a large energy company, was looking to add renewable hydrogen to the company’s supply chain.

Solution & Value

Lux shortlisted developers with differentiated technology and a proven ability to work on low-carbon, waste feedstocks and aligned those with the client’s preferred regions.

Combined with interviews with these developers, Lux evaluated technical capabilities, track records, and business execution to prioritize those developers that best fit the client’s goals.

After careful evaluation with multiple internal stakeholder groups, the client proceeded to negotiate long-term hydrogen supply agreements with a selection of these entities.

Top Questions your industry peers are asking

Inquiry is a 50-minute virtual conversation between a licensed client member and a Lux expert. During this two-way consultative exchange, the Lux expert shares insights and acts as an advisor for the member’s strategic thinking or decision-making process.
