Carol Xiao is an expert on sustainable energy. Every day, she dedicates her work to create an society that runs on green hydrogen, instead of fossil fuels.”I have always been fascinated with innovation, which in my eyes is the driving force of an advanced sustainable society.”
Carol Xiao is our Program Manager Hydrogen. She has a background in Chemical Engineering, studied at Technische Universiteit Delft and started her career in the chemical industry and high tech sector. Carol: “What I enjoy most is that innovation can be disruptive: it can bring a real change to the world in how we interact, live or (economically) behave.”
“The saying goes: alone you go faster, but together you get further. I don’t believe that, I think you can also go fast when you go together. That is what ISPT proves. But it’s important to speak the same language and make effort to understand each other.” When Carol talks to new partners, her first question always is: what are your goals? What do you want to achieve? For her that’s more important then what ISPT wants to achieve. She believes that in working together, we all benefit.

“Recently, I explained to my children what my work entails. I told them that I’m trying to save the world. My daughter reacted very adequately: “First there were dinosaurs, and now there’s us.” We need to make sure that the earth remains livable, and that can only be done with innovation, technology and cooperation. That is what I stand for and what I want to achieve. Not just for my daughter, but for all future generation and for everyone who lives on this planet.”
