The State of the Hydrogen Marketplace”

The market for hydrogen is growing and the transition to low carbon or green hydrogen is expanding at a record pace. New infrastructure for hydrogen production and distribution is being built, including blue hydrogen with CCUS and green hydrogen made by electrolysis powered by carbon free power. There are new markets for low carbon and green hydrogen and existing hydrogen consuming industries like ammonia, refining and methanol have started to shift to low carbon or green hydrogen. This session will show some examples of how the hydrogen marketplace is evolving.
