08:30 Coffee and Registration

09:00 Chairs Opening Remarks Setting The Context For The Conference

In the present environment, with high inflation and rising interest rates, the question of what is and is not affordable is the most important consideration in the scaling up of hydrogen projects. The question is how the government in the United States and Canada can stimulate the market to encourage market participants to take risks on hydrogen projects. Day one will focus on answering questions such as "what are the best methods for scaling up from small-scale projects” and how can collaboration with end users expedite the development of the market?"
