Power-to-Gas Webinar

May 26, 2020

Event Details:

May 26, 2020

10:00 am-12:30 pm (PST)


Register here and join us for an exclusive webinar focusing on power-to-gas (P2G) technology on Tuesday, May 26.

Hosted by the CHFCA, K’ul Group, and Trade Commissioner Service (TCS), the webinar will discuss how low-cost, low-carbon intensity hydrogen can be produced using surplus renewable energy and subsequently be injected into the natural gas grid. In doing so, the hydrogen can displace natural gas, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and reliance on high-carbon fuels.  Other topics include power-to-gas initiatives that are currently underway in Canada and the US, as well as opportunities for First Nations and independent power producers to develop renewable P2G projects.

The line-up of webinar speakers includes representatives from Natural Resources Canada, US Department of Energy (DOE) Fuel Cell Technologies Office, RedwoodAdaptive, Hydrogenics, Air Liquide, Enbridge, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), HTEC, Renewable Hydrogen Canada (RH2C), University of British Columbia (UBC), Siemens, FortisBC, SoCal Gas, British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC), and more.
