Building Blocks for a Hydrogen Economy

November 16, 2021 • 3:00 – 4:00 pm EST

The Energy Security and Climate Change Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) is pleased to gather a panel of leading private sector voices to highlight efforts to realize a hydrogen economy.

An emerging solution to the global climate crisis, hydrogen is a versatile energy carrier that can be used in various sectors, including passenger vehicles and electricity generation. Meanwhile, a hydrogen economy requires coordination among many actors to set up the process for producing the hydrogen, transporting it, and having the equipment to use it. This event will illuminate efforts and experiences in advancing hydrogen use in the transportation, power generation, and industrial sectors. This is the first of two events that aim to appreciate various business models as building blocks for a hydrogen economy.

This event is made possible with the support of JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles.
