EESI – Maximizing the Climate Benefits of Hydrogen

The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) and the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) invite you to a briefing on the science of hydrogen and its potential as a source of clean energy. Hydrogen has garnered significant attention from Congress, including funding for regional clean hydrogen hubs and the Department of Energy’s hydrogen Earthshot to accelerate clean energy breakthroughs.

While hydrogen is often discussed as a climate solution, if hydrogen is leaked into the atmosphere, it has an indirect warming effect. To maximize the climate benefits of hydrogen, it is important to address hydrogen leakage risks, manage other associated greenhouse gases, and use it in the highest-value applications. Panelists will describe the current state of research on hydrogen, including new technologies to detect hydrogen leaks, and discuss the most efficient and effective use cases for hydrogen power, such as powering industrial applications and heavy-duty transport.
