The Decade of Hydrogen? Exploring Pathways to Decarbonization and BC’s Competitive Advantage
March 2, 2022 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Clean Energy BC is hosting its second Renewable Technology Series this year, with timely discussions on key technologies, markets and policies that shape the growth of clean energy in BC.
Based on a survey of our members, we’re offering virtual sessions on hydrogen, BC and Canada energy and climate policy updates, storage and batteries, and grid modernization. First up is an overview of hydrogen in BC with guests John Dalton, President of Power Advisory and Matthew Klippenstein, Regional Manager, Western Canada of Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA) and Hydrogen BC (HyBC).
Hydrogen has potential for extensive use as a source of clean fuel and as an industrial feedstock, and BC is well-positioned to play an important role in this emerging market. As cost structures and climate action drive more attention by governments and industry on clean energy solutions, the benefits of hydrogen in our energy system are becoming more apparent.
At the same time, hydrogen development faces challenges of getting to scale, and the roles of low emission hydrogen (from various sources) in our future energy system are not well-defined.
John and Matthew will discuss the current state of hydrogen development, the opportunities and challenges, and BC’s unique opportunity to position itself as a major supplier of hydrogen in key international markets.
