As states in the Northeast increase their climate goals to be net zero by 2050, all are analyzing how they can get there and looking at alternative scenarios. Many reports are revealing that even with offshore wind, solar, long-duration storage, and electrification of vehicles and some building heat, there will still be gaps in providing clean energy for both consumer and commercial transportation, some energy intensive industrial processes, and building heating.
NECEC will convene stakeholders in all aspects of the hydrogen industry from both the public and private sector to discuss the opportunities and challenges of developing the infrastructure for a local green hydrogen economy. Industry leaders will be discussing about case studies from other parts of the world and learn lessons about what is working and what is not, about appropriate steps in building up a green hydrogen economy, and how the public sector is working in partnership with private investors and industry to build out early projects.
Given the concerns for health and welfare in the current environment, the event will be virtual and will take place Tuesday, 22 September, 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM CEST.
