Webcast: Challenges of Modeling  Hydrogen in the U.S. Energy System

Challenges of Modeling Hydrogen in the U.S. Energy System - Webcast Forum (March 24, 2022)

As countries focus on mid-century net-zero GHG targets, finding alternative clean energy sources and decarbonization technologies is critically important.  Hydrogen, produced from renewables, nuclear, or fossil fuels with carbon capture, could be a major decarbonization pathway, however, much more research and development is required to fully understand and appreciate its potential in a future U.S. energy system.    

This webcast forum focused on the challenges of modeling hydrogen in the U.S. energy system and was help in late March 2022. Participants were from federal agencies, DOE research labs, and leading energy system modeling teams.
