Unlocking Large-scale Deployment of Low-carbon Hydrogen: The role of nuclear and renewable energies

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Hydrogen is expected to play an essential role as part of sustainable and resilient pathways to Net Zero. There is growing momentum among CEM countries for scaling-up the production of low-carbon hydrogen within this decade from low-carbon electricity and heat sources. All low-carbon sources of power electricity and heat - from renewables and nuclear energy - will be needed. Recent projects coupling nuclear power plants with electrolysers demonstrate pathways to success. This side event will bring policy and industry leaders together to take stock of recent initiatives around the world and to discuss key policy measures that can foster integration of nuclear and renewables for scaling up low-carbon hydrogen.
