FRIDAY, JANUARY 15 AT 11:00AM EST. There is a vast and growing overproduction of electricity from solar and wind, but solar in particular, across the country, especially in the Southwest. Utilities are in a rush to find ways of saving this electricity and balancing their systems. Batteries and other storage systems are all on the table, along with what may have the most promise: green hydrogen. This is hydrogen made by electrolysis, using surplus electricity. The Europeans are ahead of us, but more and more U.S. utilities are looking at hydrogen as the companion to alternative fuels. The briefing will be moderated by syndicated columnist and broadcaster Llewellyn King. Sheila Hollis, USEA Acting Executive Director, will give opening remarks. General audience will be allowed to participate in questioning, but news outlets will be given preference. Following the event, a recording will be available on the USEA website.
