H2 @ Scale – A Potential Opportunity
July 28, 2016 | 12–1 p.m. EDT
FCTO will present a webinar entitled "H2 @ Scale – A Potential Opportunity" on Thursday, July 28 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. EDT. 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). This presentation 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. Facts about hydrogen will be shared, as will the vision of how it will fit into our future energy system. Finally, the R&D needs to enable this future will be discussed.
