Technical Considerations: Hydrogen and Analytical Tools Workshop Series

6 March 2024



Date: March 6, 2024

Time: 9:00 – 11:00 AM EST (UTC-5)


Hydrogen has become a buzz word in the energy sector and is often described as “the fuel of the future”, with potential to both decarbonize domestic energy consumption and serve as an export commodity. Many countries are taking steps toward accelerating the nascent industry, but potential implementation is still hard to assess and reliant on future price reductions as well as international market enabling conditions.     

  The multi-part Hydrogen and Analytical Tools Workshop Series, presented by the Clean Energy Solutions Center, will examine the potential benefits and tradeoffs of hydrogen development and the key factors to consider when making strategy, policy, and investment decisions about the future of hydrogen and its derivatives. 

The third installment of this series will highlight technical considerations and challenges of hydrogen production, storage, and transport, as well as potential impacts and benefits to power grid services. Speakers will provide an overview of the application of the Hydrogen Analysis Production (H2A tool), which supports transparent reporting of process design assumptions and a consistent cost analysis methodology for hydrogen production at central and distributed (forecourt/filling-station) facilities. H2A includes biomass, coal, electrolysis, natural gas, and emerging production pathways.  

Speakers include: 

  • Holly Darrow – Moderator, National Renewable Energy Laboratory
  • Misho Penev – National Renewable Energy Laboratory
  • Jamie Kee – National Renewable Energy Laboratory
