Washington & Jefferson College Hosts Oct. 4 Exploring Local & Regional Opportunities For Hydrogen In Appalachia

The Washington & Jefferson College
Center for Energy Policy and Management is hosting another in its series on Harnessing Hydrogen on October 4 - Exploring Local and Regional Opportunities In Appalachia.

This in-person only event will be held at the James David Ross Family Recreation Center from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  There is no online option.

While hydrogen energy and carbon capture utilization/storage present tremendous opportunities for the tri-state region, the path forward is unclear.

Several economic, regulatory, and technological challenges to development and deployment exist. Furthermore, local and regional governmental bodies lack a knowledge base to assess the costs and benefits of the burgeoning industry.

Harnessing Hydrogen is a day-long event that will feature individual talks, panel discussions, and interest-specific breakout sessions related to the deployment of hydrogen energy within the Pennsylvania-Ohio-West Virginia area.

The event will be held by the Center for Energy Policy & Management, which strives to provide credible, impartial, and accessible information on the region's most salient energy topics.

The event will feature several talks by thought-leaders and professionals who are at the forefront of the hydrogen and carbon capture discussion, three panel discussions, and two break-out group sessions centered around the following subjects:

-- Panel 1: Fundamentals of Hydrogen Energy and Carbon Capture,

-- Panel 2: Challenges, Opportunities, and Barriers to Entry,

-- Panel 3: Governance Issues and the Regulatory Landscape,

-- Breakout Group 1: Discussion on local and regional governmental bodies' roles in hydrogen development, and

-- Breakout Group 2: Discussion on industry affairs, finance, and technological deployment of hydrogen energy

Harnessing Hydrogen is free to attend and will be held October 4 from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. in-person at Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, Pennsylvania. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
