Billerica, Massachusetts – December 15, 2021 – Nuvera Fuel Cells, LLC, a provider of fuel cell power solutions for motive applications, announces that Gus Block, director of marketing and corporate development, is a 2021 Environment + Energy Leader 100 honoree.

Nuvera_Social_100_WebGus Block is a founding employee of Nuvera and serves as the company’s interface with state and federal agencies. He also oversees external and internal communications and public relations initiatives.

Gus’s career has focused on enabling the use of hydrogen as a clean energy carrier, beginning with a Fulbright fellowship in 1995 to build a wind-powered electrolyzer in Sri Lanka. At Nuvera, he has championed fuel cell commercialization and been directly engaged in the development of opportunities in materials handling and other early markets, working closely with the US Department of Energy and industry trade groups.

“The Honorees on the annual list show groundbreaking work and dedication to the field of sustainability and energy management,” says Paul Nastu, president of Environment+Energy Leader. “We’re thrilled to recognize Gus Block and all of this year’s honorees.”

“It’s been a privilege to work alongside many exceptional colleagues at Nuvera over the course of two decades ― including other founding employees who are still with the company,” Block said. “Years of product and technology development have culminated in Nuvera’s E-Series Fuel Cell Engines, which put advanced fuel cell technology to work in very demanding on- and off-road motive applications.”

Now in its fifth year, the annual Environment+Energy Leader 100 award recognizes those environment and energy “doers” who break trails in creating new solutions, programs, platforms, best practices and products to help their companies – or other companies – achieve greater success in commercial and industrial environmental and energy management.
