Today’s podcast is focused on the exploration of Hydrogen as a renewable energy source in the United States. Hydrogen can be produced from a variety of sources, including natural gas, coal, and renewable sources like wind and solar. When used in fuel cells, hydrogen can generate electricity with only water vapor as a byproduct.
The Department of Energy estimates that hydrogen could potentially provide 10-15% of the U.S.’s total energy by 2050. However, significant infrastructure, supply chain, and logistics challenges must be overcome before hydrogen can become a widespread energy source.
Our host, Chris Bonura and PLG Consulting’s GH2 Advisor, Taylor Robinson discuss hydrogen as a promising renewable fuel. Taylor brings over 30 years of transformational leadership and supply chain expertise in wind turbine, RNG, renewable diesel, and green hydrogen to our clients. He has led strategic sourcing, supply chain and logistics for Honda, Honeywell, HJ Heinz, and Northern Power Systems.
