Hydrogen Blending End-Use | Industry & Gov’t, Local & International Perspectives

Join us for a virtual conference focused on Hydrogen Blending End-Use Developments, including; government policy, safety regulation, 100% Hydrogen communities, lessons from Europe on standards, utility collaboration, and appliance blend testing, and burner tech developments from Academia. Did you know, there are almost 20 utilities across Canada and the US, including the largest in each country, looking at hydrogen blending pilots for example?  This includes those who are blending H2 today, planning them, and considering them.

Learn from leaders and experts from Germany, California, Denmark, Chicago, Netherlands, and across Canada (from Quebec to British Columbia).  The forum will share progress made to enable Blending of Hydrogen into Natural Gas, for use in homes and buildings to reduce greenhouse gasses. As far as we know, with very few exceptions, these topics have not been presented at any other conferences in Canada or the US.

Come learn from the best & Ask Questions!   A recording will be made available for registrants who have time conflicts.

Date:                     Tuesday, June 20th & Wednesday, June 21st  (Live. Recordings available for registrants)
Time:                    11am – 4pm ET
Location:             Virtual
