TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 30 - WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1. (TIME: TBD). Join CaFCP staff and its members at the 2021 Reuters: Hydrogen North America Summit. Hydrogen has gathered incredible momentum in North America, after being recognized as a huge opportunity to achieve a lower carbon energy mix, and ultimately net-zero goals. The market is gearing up for 3.4 million jobs and revenues of $750 billion per year by 2050. With a Production Tax Credit for green hydrogen and large-scale demonstration projects, significant growth in supply and demand, federal incentives and private investment appetite, there is no doubt that the hydrogen market is set to scale up.
But the game changers will be those who can capitalize on today’s opportunities. The time to monetize production in various end-use applications is now. To support this important transition, Hydrogen North America (30 November – 1 December) will connect the dots between all production, distribution, and application businesses, alongside policy makers and financiers. Now more than ever, we need to think big. That means large-scale projects, off-taker agreements and global trade to advance the hydrogen economy in North America.
