Is it possible to create hydrogen for $1/kw in a safe and economical way? The U.S. Department of Energy and the Biden Administration recently released an Earthshot Award to any company that can demonstrate the ability to create hydrogen for that cost in a safe and reliable method.

Green hydrogen is a zero-carbon fuel made by using renewable power to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. It is increasingly promoted as a way to decarbonize emissions-intensive long-haul transport and heavy industry. This EBC Energy Resources program will address the issue of safety, economics, and deliverability of Green Hydrogen.

Don’t miss this important discussion on the role of hydrogen in an effort to combat climate change.

A robust panel discussion with the audience will conclude the webinar.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (2.5 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
