Hydrogen is rapidly emerging as a key fuel and ingredient to lower greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change in critical sectors of the global economy. But for hydrogen to make a significant contribution to the clean energy transition, we need policy options that overcome technical and commercial challenges, and allow hydrogen to be more broadly adopted for use in industrial processes, transportation and power generation.
To discuss how hydrogen can be made and used today in service of economic growth and rapid decarbonization, Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy hosted a panel of exceptional policy, technology, and commercial experts:
- Erin M. Blanton, Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia SIPA
- Dr. Jack Brouwer, Professor, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, U.C. Irvine and Director, National Fuel Cell Research Center & Advanced Power and Energy Program
- Dr. Julio Friedmann, Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia SIPA
- Sheri Givens, Vice President, US Regulatory & Customer Strategy, National Grid
- Kristine Wiley, Executive Director, Hydrogen Technology Center
