1:00 PM - 1:45 PM Opening General Session: The Road to a Net-Zero Energy Future will be Paved by Great Innovations
Implementing a clean and modern energy system is not possible with traditional planning and today’s generation profile. This need to innovate has already spurred the adoption of energy storage and beneficial electrification and many are now considering how and when hydrogen will play a substantial role. In this opening general session, a panel of experts will align today’s interests with a practical vision of how hydrogen can influence our energy system over the next 15 years and beyond.
2:00 PM - 2:45 PM Breakout Session One | Short Term Perspectives: Fundamental Opportunities
What are the short-term market drivers and opportunities for hydrogen that you should be thinking about today, from efforts to blend hydrogen with natural gas to late breaking results from utility pilot programs?
3:00 PM - 3:45 PM Breakout Session Two | Fueling the Future of Industry
Across North America, jurisdictions are investigating how to power transportation fleets and fuel high-BTU heat/manufacturing for a clean and modern energy system. Many have established infrastructure for delivering natural gas resources effectively. So, what does the push to reduce emissions mean to these complementary sectors, and how can hydrogen address these complicated challenges?
1:00 PM - 1:45 PM Breakout Session Three | Ramping Up: Incorporating Hydrogen Opportunities into Medium and Long Term
How should we be planning on the 5-10-15 year road map of opportunities for hydrogen and how might critical assumptions - based on cost forecasts, policy, and technology development - change?
2:00 PM - 2:45 PM Breakout Session Four | Clearing Congestion: Proactive Collaboration and Regulatory Innovation
Effectively incorporating stakeholder and regulator support into long-term planning is critical for implementing new and innovative solutions. This session will equip industry professionals with best practices that encourage stakeholder collaboration and regulatory commitment with examples from recent case studies.
3:00 PM - 3:45 PM Closing General Session | The Role of Hydrogen in the Energy System of the Future
This forward-looking session will identify and investigate the intersection of the knock-on-effect beyond the electric and gas industries, including new revenue streams and benefits to consumers.
