A Model of Hydrogen Supply and Demand in Ontario to 2050
March 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This is a virtual offering that runs from 12:00-1:00 PM EDT.
Change Energy has developed a supply-demand model as part of the Government of Ontario’s Hydrogen Strategy published in April of 2022. The model provides the assessment of different growth scenarios for the Province so that pathways for the evolution of markets and infrastructures can be evaluated and developed.
The learning objectives for the webinar will be an understanding of the following:
- Attendees will gain an understanding of Ontario’s potential for the evolution of markets for hydrogen
- Development of various hydrogen production pathways
- The model provides levelized costs of hydrogen and Green House Gas abatement, as well as capital costs, operating costs, and job creation associated with the scenarios under consideration
You may be eligible for 1 CPD hour.
