The Economics of Hydrogen Production
Event Description

The energy transition is accelerating around the world, with a wide range of technologies and initiatives designed to reduce carbon emissions across all sectors of the economy. Hydrogen has emerged as having a potentially important role in the transition, providing a solution particularly useful for addressing hard to abate applications. Some of the solutions being considered for clean hydrogen include power generation, natural gas blending, renewable energy storage, transportation fuel, steel manufacturing and synthetic fuel production. Clean hydrogen production on a global basis is expected to increase significantly, creating many new business opportunities.

For hydrogen to be a viable solution, it has to meet specific criteria depending on the applications and competing solutions, especially economics. Developing a hydrogen solution requires careful attention be made in each step of the hydrogen value chain, to ensure solutions meet the specific needs for each customer and each application. Having a firm understanding of the options and implications in sourcing hydrogen is one of the key elements necessary to have a compelling value proposition and solution.

There exists a wide variety of hydrogen generation technologies and approaches. Each hydrogen generation approach has its own unique characteristics, with important implications for economics, carbon intensity, distribution requirements, scale economies, etc. The selection of a hydrogen generation approach is a critical decision in building out a hydrogen business, along with determining location, scale, and other characteristics.

This webinar will present and characterize the major dominant hydrogen generation approaches, and provide an understanding what the key configuration options are and the implications for those choices on hydrogen generation costs. Hydrogen generation technologies to be included in the webinar include:

  • Steam methane reformation with carbon capture and sequestration;

  • Methane pyrolysis;

  • Biomass to hydrogen;

  • Renewable energy to hydrogen (e.g., wind, solar and hydropower);

  • Renewable natural gas to hydrogen; and

  • Metal-water hydrogen production.
