Discussion Topics

  1. Can hydrogen be economically competitive with other low-carbon energy options given the inefficient conversions hydrogen undergoes during production and for transportation?
  2. Can a higher carbon price alone make hydrogen a competitive low-carbon energy option? Are other price support mechanisms are needed (feed-in tariffs, premium, contract for difference, etc.)?
  3. At this stage of hydrogen's market development, what elements of the regulation are the most essential to support the take-off of hydrogen?
  4. What other industry or commodity is the market for hydrogen most likely to mirror? (LNG, LPG, ethylene? or iron ore)?
  5. What makes a hydrogen supply project "investable" other than Return on Investment?
     
    1. backed by long-term demand contracts?
    2. advantageous production costs?
    3. low cost of capital through subsidies/incentives?
  6. What questions/demands are financiers asking/making that the hydrogen industry has yet to find a sufficient answer to?
  7. Beyond Hydrogen Hubs connected via pipelines, what technology or mechanism is most likely to link different regional markets into one global commoditized market? (as LNG has for natural gas)
     
    1. Liquified hydrogen
    2. H2 to ammonia (and back to H2?)
    3. H2 to methanol (and back to H2?)
    4. Other liquid organic hydrogen carriers?
