Webinar July 28: H2@Scale – A Potential Opportunity
July 20, 2016
The Energy Department's Fuel Cell Technologies Office will present a live webinar
titled "H2@Scale – A Potential Opportunity" on Thursday, July 28, from 10 to 11 a.m.
Mountain Daylight Time.
Hydrogen, as a flexible, clean energy-carrying intermediate, has the potential to be a centerpiece of a future energy system where aggressive market penetration of renewables (wind and solar) are coupled with renewable hydrogen production to meet society’s energy demands using clean, renewable resources and processes.
A number of key recent changes are bringing hydrogen back into the spotlight: (1)
renewable energy is getting cheaper, and penetration levels are increasing at an exponential
pace; (2) the costs of greenhouse gas emissions (climate change) and criteria pollutants
(health concerns) are being acknowledged and are reaching a point where society is
demanding change (renewable portfolio and zero emission vehicle standards); and (3)
commercial viability of fuel cell vehicle technology has been demonstrated (commercial
vehicles being sold).
A presentation by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory will focus on the role of hydrogen at the grid scale and the efforts of a large, national lab team assembled to evaluate the potential of hydrogen to play a critical role in our energy future. Presenters will share facts about hydrogen and the vision of how it will fit into our future energy system and will discuss the R&D needs to enable this future.
