Calgary Branch AGM & Luncheon | Why the Hype Around Hydrogen?

26 Jan 2023
Register by January 22, 2023

Talk about hydrogen is everywhere these days: announcements of gigascale projects, memorandums of understanding for international trade, billions of dollars in tax credits and funding, and references to the "Swiss army knife" of the energy transition. But how does the hype compare to the realities of the industry and current projects? How widespread will hydrogen be and what will we use it for? And what is the current state of technology and how will different sources compete on cost? The reality is that, although great strides have been made in technology development and new funding schemes have the potential to propel the hydrogen industry forward, we are still a long way from the scale of projects that make the headlines. This presentation will provide insights from DNV’s independent energy transition outlook and its ongoing consulting work in the hydrogen industry to provide the basis for a discussion on current status and what the industry needs to succeed.
