US Hydrogen Policy – Imperative for Global Security and Sustainability

Monday, September 25, 2023 – 1:15 PM to 2:15 PM EDT

As the world races towards cleaner energy solutions, hydrogen emerges as a linchpin in the transition, particularly for industries where electrification faces limitations, such as aviation, shipping, and high-heat production like cement and steel production. 

Beyond its cleaner energy potential, hydrogen’s strategic importance for national security must be considered, especially in the global competition with China. With China’s dominance in the photovoltaic sector as a stark reminder, we’ll discuss how imperative it is for the US to lead in developing a robust hydrogen economy.
Join Amb. Andras Simonyi (Ph.D.) and SSF’s Ed Saltzberg in conversation with Landon Derentz, senior director and Morningstar Chair for Global Energy Security at the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center.

They will explore the intricate connections between sustainable energy, industrial innovation, safeguarding the nation’s future, and maintaining a competitive edge on the global stage.
