Please join Payne Institute Senior Research Associate Sara Hastings-Simon, David Keith, and Ed Whittingham, on the Energy vs. Climate series for a podcast titled The New Hydrogen Economy: Pathway or Panacea? on Wednesday, September 23rd from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. MT.

Hydrogen is once again the #1 element in the energy transition world. Does the new hydrogen economy offer real potential as a pathway to net zero and Canadian leadership on climate and low carbon energy production, or is it just the latest overhyped tech-fix that avoids practical action?

David, Sara and Ed will share a brief introduction to the basics of hydrogen as it relates to energy systems, and discuss the challenges and opportunities for Canada in a hydrogen economy from a technical, business and policy perspective.

They will be joined by special guest Dr. Francis O’Sullivan. Dr. O’Sullivan is a Senior Lecturer at the MIT Solan School of Management and the Head of Onshore strategy for Ørsted, where he is responsible for their early-stage technology investment portfolio as well as long-term commercial planning and market analysis in support of Ørsted’s investment programs across onshore wind, solar and storage globally.
