HYDROGEN Seminar Series

Aug 30 - Dec 6, 2022 Thuwal, Saudi Arabia

About the Hydrogen Seminar Series

A fortnightly series of fall seminars organized by the Clean Combustion Research Center (CCRC). The Hydrogen Seminar Series (HSS) aims to bring together leading experts in hydrogen from government, national labs, academia, and industry to provide critical insights into the technology, economics, policy, and market including business drivers and barriers for hydrogen, both in the short term and in the long term.

During the seminars, we will examine hydrogen production, transportation, storage, distribution, safety, use, and commercial opportunities. We will also explore the policy levers that are necessary to accelerate the deployment of hydrogen.

Format: HSS will be conducted in a hybrid panel format and all plenaries will feature three speakers. Each panelist has 15-20 minutes of uninterrupted sharing of his or her perspective on the topic, followed by 30 minutes of a panel discussion and Q&A from the audience; ending with a summary.

Attendance policy: The seminars are open to the public.

For those interested but unable to attend the live events or webinars, recordings will be available on the CCRC website following each event.
