Green Hydrogen: A Rising Star in The Energy Landscape

Wednesday, December 9th, 12:00 pm PST

The global energy landscape is changing at a rapid pace. Many nations in the world are answering the call to action to contribute significantly to an overall reduction in greenhouse gases. In the United States, California is a leading example with its goal to achieve 100% clean energy by 2045. Utilities are accelerating their plans to achieve these aggressive goals.

  • Renewable energy is the fastest-growing of all electricity sources.
  • Hydrogen is one particularly attractive option to convert excess renewable energy via electrolysis, which is often referred to as “Green Hydrogen”.
  • Green Hydrogen will realize long-term, seasonal power-to-power storage on a large scale.

This webinar will address:

  • how green hydrogen will be a catalyst to a green economy.
  • What are the latest technology developments for large-scale industrialization of green hydrogen, and potential applications for utilities and industries?
  • What are the benefits and challenges of this energy transition?
