WEBINAR | The Impact of Green Hydrogen on the Power System

by | Feb 7, 2022 | Announcements

Green hydrogen is playing a vital role in achieving deep decarbonization of the energy system. Experts from CESI, EnerNex, and encoord will explore green hydrogen’s implications for the power sector, including:

  • Its role: Hydrogen strategy in the U.S. + Experiences from the E.U. (including CESI’s study of Green Hydrogen in ‘hard-to-abate’ sectors in Italy)
  • Possible schemes for integration of green hydrogen
  • Modeling the impacts (and value) of hydrogen on the power system
