Nov. 17 webinar on economic, technical realities of hydrogen
By Jack Burke07 October 2021
Diesel & Gas Turbine Worldwide will host a free webinar on both the economic and technical realities of implementing hydrogen as a tool for decarbonization.
Hydrogen Outlook will be held at 9 a.m. CST Nov. 17 and will feature participants who deep practical insights into the use of hydrogen as a fuel.
With the ongoing effort to decarbonize energy, hydrogen is seen as an attractive alternative to hydrocarbon energy sources. But there are technical and economic challenges that must be addressed before hydrogen can become a widespread solution.
Registration for the one-hour webinar is free.
The participants will include:
