H2IQ Hour: Long-Duration Energy Storage Using Hydrogen and Fuel Cells
March 24, 2021, 12–1 p.m. ET
Join this month's H2IQ Hour to learn more about how hydrogen can enable long-duration, low-cost, low-carbon energy storage technologies. Variable renewable energy penetration, including solar and wind power, is rapidly increasing around the world. As the use of renewables continues ramping up, clean power systems will require long-duration energy storage options that are flexible and have a low or zero carbon footprint. In this webinar, presenters from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory will describe the costs of a variety of long-duration energy storage technologies, including hydrogen, pumped hydropower, flow batteries, compressed air energy storage, thermal energy storage, and natural gas turbines with carbon capture. Presenters will discuss how these technologies perform in high-renewable grids and in scenarios reflecting both current and potential future capital costs. The H2IQ Hour will include a 45-minute live presentation, followed by 15 minutes of Q&A. A recording of the H2IQ Hour will be available on the website after the event.
