forum, the first sponsored by the National Hydrogen Association and its newly-established
Renewable Hydrogen Working Group (RHWG), is intended to objectively promote the
renewable production of hydrogen by identifying and addressing the issues, challenges,
and opportunities associated with related technologies, infrastructures, and economics
of each of the renewable resources.
a focused environment which facilitates the free exchange of information related
to renewable hydrogen production for all interested stakeholders.
an agenda, consisting of plenaries/panels and individual presentations, designed
to produce specific outputs -- including strategies and policy recommendations
to accelerate the role of renewables in the transition to hydrogen.
industry specific issues and needs as introduced by industry members themselves.
- Stimulate ideas and produce a cohesive outlook concerning the
strategic relationships between renewable energy and hydrogen.
the foundation for future forums or related activities which further the case
for renewable hydrogen production.
Information gathered from this forum will be used in the preparation of the following
Renewable Hydrogen Working Group products:
- Draft White Paper which provides
the case for and the current status of renewable hydrogen production in the U.S.
Draft Fact Sheets on each of the individual renewable hydrogen production technologies.
- A draft, notional transition schedule/vision for the rollout of renewable
- Information and recommendations from attendees which
support the development of the Renewable Hydrogen Working Group plan for 2008/2009
Will ask all attendees to fill out a questionnaire/survey which, among other things,
specifically asks for their recommendations in this area
NHA's Renewable Hydrogen Working Group desires the assistance of the renewable
trade associations to identify key issues, speakers and participation from their
membership, including ACORE, AWEA, SEIA/SEPA, GEA, NH(ydropower)A and ACORE's
Biofuels Coordinating Council.
