(Lancaster, PA) – Eric Schraud, Founder and CEO of GenHydro, a renewable energy project development firm in Lancaster, Pa, has been selected by The Central Penn Business Journal as one of the region’s power players for their annual Power 100 List.  

The Central Penn Business Journal’s Power 100 list, selected by the publication’s editorial leadership team, recognizes the area’s most significant, influential, and respected leaders in their field. 

What started as a hobby in his garage, experimenting with electrolysis and reactive methods to power personal vehicles, Schraud has grown GenHydro into a renewable energy project development firm, helping to accelerate the global transition to emissions-free energy. 

“Building out our team and prioritizing a healthy work/life balance has allowed this incredible momentum to continue as we went from an emerging tech company to commercialization, now working on major projects with publicly traded companies,” said Schraud. 

Since its incorporation in 2021, under Schraud’s leadership, GenHydro has developed a novel and highly economical green energy production technology that creates green hydrogen and clean energy from water and scrap metal without using electricity. They source waste aluminum, process it into a reactant powder (solid fuel), and use this solid fuel in modular GenHydro reactors, placed at a customer’s location, for emissions-free on-site hydrogen production and clean energy generation. 

“As Eric has continued to build GenHydro into a leading green energy/hydrogen company, he has displayed both technical brilliance and very high emotional intelligence.  This rare combination has allowed him to be a very effective, selfless leader and an ideal founder and CEO in this industry,” said Chris Kager Vice President of Strategy for GenHydro.
