The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) alongside the Sustainable Energy Council (SEC) are co-hosting the Hydrogen Americas Summit, taking place from 10-11 October at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington DC. The Summit will gather global government representatives, hydrogen and energy stakeholders, service providers and end-users to identify opportunities and get insights into the latest projects and policy developments that will be crucial to drive the Region’s industry forward.
Hydrogen will be crucial to achieve a low-carbon energy mix. The recent signing of the Inflation Reduction Act as well as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, including unprecedented funding for the development of clean hydrogen hubs, has further cemented the key role that hydrogen will play in the region’s energy transition.
The U.S. aims to reinforce its energy leadership and strengthen the economy through Hydrogen projects which could generate $140 billion per year in revenue and create 700,000 jobs by 2030 according to the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association (FCHEA).
Hon. Jennifer Granholm, the Secretary of Energy from the U.S. DOE said:
“I am delighted to invite companies and governments to Washington D.C. on October 10th and 11th for the Hydrogen Americas Summit which is co-hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Sustainable Energy Council. This is going to be a tremendous opportunity to showcase new policies, new projects, convene decision makers and stakeholders and enthusiasts to help make the Americas a global leader on clean hydrogen.” View the full video invitation below.
Dr Sunita Satyapal, Director, Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Technologies Office, Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, and DOE Hydrogen Program Coordinator said:
“Now, collaboration and coordination are more critical than ever across government agencies and industry and research labs, academia, all communities to create a competitive and equitable and resilient clean energy economy. And ultimately our success or failure will know no boundaries. So, it’s time for collaboration across sectors and across borders as we look to our neighbors in the Americas.” View the full video invitation below.
