Part 2: Creating a Sustainable Hydrogen Supply Chain
13 July 2020

Production of low or zero-carbon hydrogen on an industrial scale needs to be built in tandem with the emerging sources of demand across the economy. The ultimate goal is to be able to create hydrogen on a cost-competitive basis with grey hydrogen, which uses a carbon-intensive methane steam reforming process and currently dominates industrial supply, as well as conventional fuels/sources for power generation. 

The panel will discuss the viability of different sources of hydrogen supply, energy storage solutions and renewable power generation, including from wind farms. It will consider recent technological developments and remaining challenges, as well as the economic and legal foundations necessary to facilitate its widespread adoption.

Part 1: Decarbonising the Economy with Hydrogen
6 July 2020

The widespread application of hydrogen solutions will be an essential contributor to countries being able to achieve their carbon-emission reduction commitments under the Paris Agreement. Hydrogen has vast potential as a versatile fuel that can be applied to a wide variety of sectors, from heavy industry to urban settings, and is particularly useful in sectors unsuitable for electrification.

The panel will discuss cutting-edge developments in creating profitable uses for hydrogen, moving towards commercial applications that decarbonise a range of specific sectors without the need for government support.

PE Live: Is the world now ready for hydrogen?
12 June 2020

The science behind the hydrogen economy has been around for many years, but only now are the necessary real-world factors coming together to support its implementation. Is this the right time to start building a hydrogen economy?

Governments, companies and electorates are increasingly viewing hydrogen as the most workable solution to the challenge set by the Paris Agreement. It offers huge potential gains over fossil fuels for power and transport and in terms of supporting renewables in power grids and storing energy. The challenge is how to make it all economically viable. 

The expert panel will discuss the progress made in developing a hydrogen economy and the challenges that remain. It will cover:

  • The potential pathways to a hydrogen economy
  • Legal and regulatory issues for developing a new market
  • Capital market funding and investor perspectives
  • Technological developments and cost reduction
