Blue vs. Green Hydrogen—How to Decide

Are you interested in investing in low-carbon hydrogen projects, but don’t know where to start? Do you want to understand the factors that impact the cost of producing low-carbon hydrogen in the US and how government incentives play a role? View this informative webinar as we explore the key considerations for deciding between blue and green hydrogen production projects.

Investing in low-carbon hydrogen projects requires evaluating multiple alternatives that can differ significantly in terms of their cost, scalability, and environmental impact. One of the main cost drivers for green hydrogen is the cost of electrolyzers, which can be reduced through learning and innovation much like the shale revolution did for drilling costs. Blue hydrogen, on the other hand, relies on access to cheap natural gas supply.

To make an informed decision between blue and green hydrogen investments, it’s essential to understand the factors that determine their economics and the impact of government incentives on their competitiveness. For example, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) provides tax incentives for hydrogen production and storage that can help to reduce the cost of low-carbon hydrogen production.

This webinar is designed for low-carbon hydrogen project investors or developers, as well as anyone interested in understanding how to think about investing in low-carbon hydrogen projects. You will learn about the cost drivers in producing low-carbon hydrogen from the US, how US government incentives impact the cost of producing low-carbon hydrogen, and the key factors to consider when investing in blue vs. green hydrogen projects.
