IEEFA’s research has important implications for local, state and federal policy decisions on the future of Hydrogen.

Specifically, the experts will discuss:

  1. The important choices that policymakers must make about the energy transition;
  2. Questions about the full costs and impacts of fossil-fuel-based hydrogen
  3. The real-world track record of carbon capture; and
  4. The strong market forces that are diminishing the economic future of fossil-fuel-based hydrogen and how “blue hydrogen” projects are likely to fall short of economic promises.
