The Future of Hydrogen

Path towards Carbon Neutrality:
US-China Green Energy Council 2021 Seminar
Zoom Webinar

The world has committed to achieve carbon neutrality in the middle of this century, the time is right to tap into hydrogen’s potential to enable it to play an essential role in the path towards carbon net zero. Hydrogen can help tackle various critical energy challenges. It offers ways to decarbonize a range of sectors – including transportation, chemicals, and iron and steel – where it is proving difficult to meaningfully reduce emissions. It can also help to store and transfer energy and strengthen energy security.

US-China Green Energy Council (UCGEC) is excited to invite distinguished speakers from the government, the energy industry, and international societies to share their insights and vision on the future of hydrogen economy in U.S and China.
