H2Hub Summit Reveals Trailblazing Experts from Victorious Hydrogen Hubs

March 16, 2024 0 By Julie Campbell

The event is on March 20 and will feature experts from DoE selected projects.

The H2Hub Summit is rapidly approaching, and attendees will be thrilled to learn that all the H2Hub winners will be featured speakers at scheduled times throughout the event. 

Regional Clean Hydrogen Hubs H2 initiatives

The HYSKY Society hosted event places the spotlight on each of the projects selected by the Department of Energy (DoE) as Regional Clean Hydrogen Hubs. The H2Hub Summit will showcase the groundbreaking hydrogen initiatives that comprise each of the projects. 

That said, what’s even more exciting is that there will be a speaker representing each of those projects who will talk at various times throughout the event.  The speaker schedule begins just after the 9:00am Opening Address by HYSKY CEO Danielle McLean, until her Closing Remarks begin at 12:50pm. 

H2Hub Summit featured speakers

The speakers at the H2Hub Summit will each give an address, followed by a live Q&A period. The presentations will be about 20 minutes long, followed by 10 minutes of Q&A. Each featured speaker’s presentation will occur one after the next, with a small 10-minute break taking place at 11:10.

The featured speakers will include:

Why The H2Hub Summit: Meet the Winners is Crucial for the Future of Hydrogen Energy

This summit presents an unparalleled opportunity to hear directly from the industry experts who are propelling innovation in the hydrogen sector. These are the people leading the ground initiatives, turning the promise of hydrogen energy into reality. They are the winners of the Department of Energy‘s (DOE) substantial investment into America’s first Regional Clean Hydrogen Hubs.

Each hub concentrates on a different aspect of the hydrogen economy, from production methods to applications, and each has received significant federal funding to support their projects. For instance, the Appalachian Hydrogen Hub was provided with a federal cost share to focus on clean hydrogen production from natural gas and carbon emissions storage. Similarly, the California Hydrogen Hub, which was awarded a hefty sum, concentrates on producing hydrogen from renewable and biomass energy sources, aiming at decarbonizing public transportation.H2Summit Event

This diversity in focus and approach is what makes the H2Hub Summit: Meet the Winners such a vital event. Each hub offers unique insights into the practicalities of creating a hydrogen-powered future. By bringing these hubs together, the summit facilitates the exchange of ideas, fosters collaboration, and accelerates progress.

Furthermore, the H2Hub Summit: Meet the Winners is not just about celebrating current achievements. It is about shaping the future. The summit provides a platform for discussions on future policy and investment in the hydrogen sector, laying out a blueprint for a hydrogen-powered future across various sectors.
