North America has appeared conflicted in its green energy credentials in recent years. On the one hand, it is in prime position to lead efforts in decarbonisation; on the other, it is still actively reaping the economic reward of existing fossil fuel resources.

The landscape is rapidly shifting and the transition to renewable energies, and a world fuelled by green hydrogen in particular, is closer than we think. Yet for the US and wider North America, there is arguably still great distances to travel. The region has been giving chase in a race to green hydrogen dominated by Europe and Asia-Pacific.

The time is now for hydrogen in North America.

The region is perfectly placed to expand its global energy leadership at scale and speed, if policymakers and industry can work together and take the right steps to realise this vision.

What lessons can be learned from Europe’s policymakers? Where are the challenges to be overcome? Where are the strengths and opportunities? How can North America go from giving chase to taking a lead in hydrogen?

Join H2 View as we address these questions and the current state-of-play in North America’s hydrogen sector, across our four pillars of Mobility, Power, Policy and Technology, this October.
