Green Hydrogen Forum

Green Hydrogen Forum

August 3, 2021 | Online :: Central Time

Overview

The market for green hydrogen is expected to grow exponentially as governments, corporations, investors and environmentalists across the globe believe that it is an energy source that could help the world achieve a zero carbon emission global economy by 2050.  Green hydrogen could supply our energy needs, fuel our cars, heat our homes and be used in industries that have no economically viable alternative to fossil fuels and could revolutionize value chains in the energy industry.

This one day forum will provide an overview of what a hydrogen economy will look like, what is green hydrogen and its role in combating climate change.  This forum will cover the basic fundamentals of green hydrogen, its application and use, production, delivery, safety, storage and scalability.  Attendees will also learn about decarbonization technologies that have been adapted in Europe, Asia, and North America. 

Learning Outcomes

This course will provide attendees an opportunity to:

  • Gain a clear understanding what green hydrogen is and why it is getting so much traction among governments, corporations and investors
