Title: Role of Hydrogen Technologies in Future Energy Systems

Summary: “Hydrogen, which is a flexible and potentially a zero-carbon emission energy carrier, could facilitate the transition toward 100% renewable energy systems and the integration of different energy sectors. However, large-scale industrial deployment of hydrogen technologies poses technical and economic challenges associated not only with the technology itself but also with the integration with renewable power/electricity markets. This presentation explores barriers and opportunities for the deployment of hydrogen technologies in view of 100% renewable energy systems.”

Bio: “Omar José Guerra Fernández is a research engineer in the Distribution Edge Group within the Grid Planning and Analysis Center (GPAC) at the Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Golden, Colorado. Omar is conducting research to develop a better understanding of the economics of renewable energy technologies, including energy storage, hydrogen, wind power, solar photovoltaic power, and CO₂ electrolysis technologies. He is the author or co-author of a variety of publications on the following topics: economics of multiscale energy storage, hydrogen, and CO2 electrolysis technologies; integration of wind and solar photovoltaic power sources into energy systems; and modeling, simulation, and optimization of large-scale integrated energy systems.”
