Hydrogen council summit to address zero-carbon role for climate goals

November 24, 2021

The California Hydrogen Business Council is presenting its first California Hydrogen Leadership Summit in Sacramento this winter to highlight to policymakers hydrogen’s role in the future of decarbonization in California.

“There are pressing issues at hand. We are not going to meet our policy goals without hydrogen,” Sara Fitzsimon Nelson, policy director with the council, told the Business Journal.

The state has set goals to decarbonize its economy and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030.

Some of that decline will be driven from converting electric generation to renewable sources and from transitioning transportation to non-petroleum fuels.

Hydrogen can have an important role in both of those sectors, Fitzsimon Nelson said, but it needs support to scale the industry.
