Hydrogen Rising — The Colors of Hydrogen: Simple or Oversimplified?

Hydrogen Rising co-hosts Sandra Safro and David Wochner welcome IHS Markit’s Alex Klaessig to the podcast to discuss the color taxonomy of hydrogen and the benefits and challenges that a simplified nomenclature presents. Alex leads IHS Markit’s Hydrogen and Renewable Gas Forum’s research on fuel cell vehicles and renewable natural gas.

The Energizer – Volume 84

By: Buck B. Endemann, Daniel S. Cohen, Molly K. Barker, Olivia B. Mora, Natalie J. Reid, Matthew P. Clark, Nathan C. Howe, Oretha Manu

A biweekly update on clean technology applications, distributed energy resources, and other innovative technologies in the renewable energy and clean transport sectors.

There is a lot of buzz around clean technology, distributed energy resources (DERs), microgrids, and other technological innovations in renewable energy and clean transport industries, and how these developments can contribute to solving longstanding environmental justice issues. As these innovations develop, energy markets will undergo substantial changes to which consumers and industry participants alike will need to adapt and leverage. Every other week, K&L Gates’ The Energizer will highlight emerging issues or stories relating to the use of DERs, energy storage, emerging technologies, hydrogen, and other innovations driving the energy industry forward.

IN THIS ISSUE: 

  • New GREEN Act Could Extend and Create New Credits for Renewable Energy, Energy Storage, Carbon Capture, and Electric Vehicles
  • Eight California Community Choice Aggregators Form Joint Powers Authority
  • Southeastern U.S. Utilities Request Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Approval for Energy Exchange
  • Green Hydrogen Joint Venture in Iberia Will Help Meet the European Union’s Carbon Goals

Washington State Legislature Considers First of Its Kind State-Level Natural Gas Ban

By: David Benson, Buck Endemann, Elizabeth Thomas, Sandra Safro, and Benjamin Mayer

Fossil-based natural gas may be headed for a reckoning, at least in Washington State. Not long ago, natural gas was seen by many as the key “bridge fuel” necessary to transition our society away from oil and coal. Natural gas has its upsides; most significantly, it burns more efficiently and emits fewer pollutants than coal.1 Yet burning natural gas still emits greenhouse gases (GHG), including methane, a potent climate pollutant. According to EPA, methane accounts for approximately 10% of the GHG emissions in the United States.2 That is a problem for states like Washington that have called for zero carbon emissions in the power sector by 2045 and have also enacted laws aimed at reducing GHG emissions throughout other sectors.
