Doosan Group, a 126-year-old South Korean conglomerate emerging from restructuring, is looking to hydrogen-powered technology to help revive its fortunes and expand its presence in renewable energy. 

“Our long-term vision is to provide fuel cells for various kinds of mobile applications, like robots, starting with hydrogen drones,” said Doosoon Lee, chief executive officer of unit Doosan Mobility Innovation. “We will also play a crucial role in the South Korean government’s goal to build a multiseat unmanned aerial vehicle.”
