Hydrogen has been in and out of the news for the past two decades as a fuel for fuel cell electric vehicles and power generation. Not a day goes by without a story on how green hydrogen may decarbonize the transportation, electric power, and heating sectors. Tom Russo, President of Russo on Energy LLC, takes a hard look at what’s different this time around and whether policymakers are relying too much on green hydrogen to attain their goals. He’ll review blue hydrogen and green hydrogen production and look at the opportunities and barriers of blending hydrogen in the natural gas grids in the U.S. and European Union. He’ll also explore the role of federal and state programs needed to incentivize increased blue and green hydrogen production and use in by pipelines, gas utilities, and gas-fired generators to decarbonize the natural gas industry.
Tom Russo is an Energy and Environmental expert with 30+ years of FERC regulatory experience and knowledge of energy infrastructure, environmental impact assessment, markets, and physical/cybersecurity.
