Hydrogen has the potential for extensive use as a source of clean fuel and as an industrial feedstock—but it is expensive to produce, and current methods of production are very carbon intensive. Increased use of decarbonized “blue” and “green” hydrogen—hydrogen produced from natural gas with carbon capture technology and from electrolysis with renewable or nuclear energy, respectively—has the potential to greatly reduce emissions from industrial production processes and electricity generation. Recent research from RFF’s Alan Krupnick and Jay Bartlett identifies cost-effective opportunities for decarbonized hydrogen and examines short-term policy options to make blue and green hydrogen more competitive in the US industrial and power sectors.
Join us on Tuesday, March 9, as we sit down with a panel of experts to discuss strategies to reduce barriers to deployment for decarbonized hydrogen. We will begin the event with a presentation of Bartlett and Krupnick’s recent report that will outline the technologies and their relative costs, as well as review policy options to incentivize the production and use of decarbonized hydrogen.
