45V and Defining Green Hydrogen
The U.S. government—via the Inflation Reduction Act—has identified hydrogen as key piece of the energy transition and established generous policies to develop the sector. Implementation of the 45V Hydrogen Production Tax Credit will define the emissions intensity and cost competitiveness of this emerging resource.
This conversation will focus on 45V implementation with experts who are modeling the potential impacts of time-matching, additionality, and deliverability requirements.
Anne-Sophie Corbeau (Columbia University), John Larsen (Rhodium Group), and Wilson Ricks (Princeton University) will discuss how 45V could affect production growth, downstream adoption of emerging applications, and economy-wide greenhouse gas emissions.
Moderated by Cy McGeady (CSIS Energy Security and Climate Change Program); opening remarks by Joseph Majkut (CSIS Energy Security and Climate Change Program).
This event is made possible by general support to CSIS and the CSIS Energy Security and Climate Change Program.
The Department of Energy expects to support six to eight regional clean hydrogen hubs with funds from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Around the country, 22 hub proposals are under development to vie for the funds.
